Darren Aronofsky, the director of Black Swan and The Wrestler, is set to direct a video for "Iced Honey," a cut from Lou Reed and Metallica's new collaborative album, Lulu. The clip, which will find the Oscar-nominated filmmaker working with director of photography Matthew Libatique, is expected to debut online later this month.

Metallica drummer told the Associated Press that working with Reed and Aronofsky on this project is like "living the dream." Reed, commenting on the video, said that he hopes the clip will be "his Black Swan."

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
