Metric Speak On New Track With Lou Reed


Metric's new album Synthetica is due out on June 18, and features special guest Lou Reed on vocals for the track "The Wanderlust."

Speaking with NME.com, vocalist Emily Haines explained how the collaboration came about and what it was like to work with the rock legend:

"I met him at this Neil Young tribute, I got introduced to him and I'd assumed he wouldn't know who I was, but when we met he quoted some of my lyrics from 'Gimme Sympathy' so that was amazing. Then he invited me to Australia for this show and we did a couple of songs together."

According to Haines, Reed was keen to sing backup on their track:

"We had this bit in 'The Wanderlust' which needed a back-up and I thought he'd be perfect, so I called him up and he said yes right away. He's one of the finest songwriters ever and to have him on our record is a huge honour."
