Lou Reed New York Expanded

An expanded edition of Lou Reed’s ‘New York’ is on the way.

‘New York’, released in 1989, was Lou Reed’s 15th solo album.

The lyrics of ‘New York’ read like a forecast for time times ahead. On ‘Sock Of You’ Lou sings, “They ordained the Trumps and then he got the mumps” and “It was an inside trader eating a rubber tire after running over Rudy Giuliani”. The NRA is also name-checked in ‘Last Great American Whale’ with “Some local yokel member of the nra, Kept a bazooka in his living room”.

One song, ‘Dirty Boulevard’, also achieved a level of commercial airplay.

For the reissue Warner Music advises, “The entire album has been remastered for the first time ever for this collection. The second disc presents unreleased live versions from the Lou Reed Archive of every album track compiled from multiple performances. To avoid duplication, none of these live tracks were taken from the set’s accompanying DVD.

“The third disc showcases unreleased early versions of several album tracks from the Lou Reed Archive, including “Last Great American Whale,” “Sick Of You” and “Dirty Blvd.” Also featured is the non-LP track “The Room,” as well as live versions of “Sweet Jane,” a song Reed originally recorded with The Velvet Underground, and “Walk On The Wild Side,” from his second solo album, Transformer (1972.)

“This set also includes “The New York Album,” a concert video that was originally released in 1990 on VHS and Laserdisc. It has never been available on DVD, until now. It features Reed performing the entire New York album live in Montreal at the Theatre St. Denis. The DVD concludes with an audio-only interview with Reed”.

Lou Reed ‘New York’ will be released on 25 September 2020.
