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."

“I Was Made to Love Her”

Stevie Wonder | 1967

Stevie Wonder discovered true love while still a teenager, writing this ode to young love when he was only 17. The song, Wonder explained, "kind of speaks of my first love, to a girl named Angie, who was a very beautiful woman. She's married now. Actually, she was my third girlfriend but my first love. I used to call Angie up and we would talk and say, 'I love you, I love you,' and we'd talk and we'd both go to sleep on the phone.” The Beach Boys, Chaka Khan, Whitney Houston and Boyz II Men have all recorded versions of "I Was Made to Love Her."
