As explained in this thread, Metallica teamed up with Lou Reed and are releasing a new album with him in October.
As for the project, I have no problem with either artist giving it a shot. However, this The View song completely failed to impress me. I don't have the feeling I heard anything I've never heard before, or that this is really tearing down any walls. It's really just metal riffs with someone talking over it. Maybe, if the talking had some sort of rhythm to it that fits to the guitars, it would be cool. This way, there is really nothing to it. There was a part somewhere where I thought it might actually pick up, but it never does.
Perhaps it has a different effect when hearing it embedded in an album, but seeing how they released it as a stand-alone taster, you should be able to enjoy it by itself too. And it's just... bland.
