Lou Reed’s lyric book is being reissued with Martin Scorsese intro

Lou Reed‘s lyric book, I’ll Be Your Mirror: Collected Lyrics is set for a reissue from Faber & Faber. The book, which has been out of print for several years, will also feature intros from the legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese, electronic music pioneer and Reed’s widow Laurie Anderson and James Atlas.

The reissue will also include the lyrics to Reed’s final album, Lulu, a collaboration album with Metallica. Despite dividing fans of both Reed and Metallica, David Bowie claimed Lulu to be arguably Reed’s best work to date.
