A trailer for Todd Haynes‘ new documentary about The Velvet Underground has been released by AppleTV+.
The trailer features John Cole and Moe Tucker as talking heads and also contains archive footage of Lou Reed and the band’s one-time manager Andy Warhol.
“It opened your eyes to a lot of possibilities,” Cole is seen saying of the New York art scene the group were a part of.
“I was interested in communicating with people who were on the outside,” Reed is heard saying over old black-and-white footage of the frontman.
While announcing the film last year, the makers promised that it would bring fans “a treasure trove of never-before-seen performances and a rich collection of recordings, Warhol films, and other experimental art.”
The documentary, which will cover the Velvet Underground’s rise to cult fame in New York City and their subsequent influence on future rock and punk bands, is set to arrive on Apple TV+ on October 15.
According to a press release, Republic Records and UMe will be releasing the accompanying soundtrack on the same day. It will feature “both well known and rare Velvet Underground tracks.”
