Back in 2006 at Brooklyn’s St. Ann’s Warehouse, Lou Reed’s classic, and classically controversial 1973 record Berlin, was brought to live over a four-day period, and filmed by famed painter-turned-director Julian Schnabel. Everything that made the record a chilling curiosity when originally released was in tact, as were other rousing augmentations: a seven-piece orchestra, featured vocalists such as Antony and Sharon Jones, and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus.

On September 30 (for digital) and October 7 (physical retail product), Matador Records will release the official soundtrack to the Schnabel film, which will make its DVD bow on October 8, via the Weinstein Company.
