This is a match made in visual + artistic heaven!
Award-winning film director Darren Aronofsky, best-known for the Oscar-nominated films Black Swan and The Wrestler, will direct a performance music video for "Iced Honey" - a track from Lou Reed and Metallica's new album Lulu. The clip will be shot in the San Francisco Bay Area and will be available for viewing later this month.
"I have loved Darren Aronofsky since he did Pi," said Lou Reed. "I hope I can be his next Black Swan."
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich adds, "As if making a record with Lou Reed is not enough..... now I get to make a video with Darren Aronofsky, who has been among my very favorite filmmakers since his first movie, Pi This is turning into a monumental chapter in the on-going saga entitled 'Lars Ulrich...living the dream!!!'"
We cannot wait to see it. Aronofsky is one of our fave directors, too! He can do no wrong in our eyes.
