Songs for Drella is a concept album by Lou Reed and John Cale, both formerly of The Velvet Underground.
On January 9, 1989 Cale and Reed performed a selection of Songs for Drella at The Church of St. Anne's in Brooklyn. The first full version was played on November 29–30, and December 2–3 at the Next Wave Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. On the last date they were joined onstage by Maureen Tucker for the encore of "Pale Blue Eyes".
It was released in 1990 by Sire Records. A live performance—without an audience—at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, directed by Ed Lachman, was filmed on December 6, 1989 and released on VHS and laserdisc formats.
The album is the pair's first collaboration since 1972, and is dedicated to the memory of Andy Warhol,
