Light in the Attic Records in cooperation with Laurie Anderson and the Lou Reed Archive, proudly announces a definitive re-release of Hudson River Wind Meditations, the pioneering artist’s final solo album. Originally released in 2007, the deeply personal project combines Reed’s love of creating drone music with his passion for Tai Chi, yoga and meditation. The album’s ambient soundscapes have been described as a counterpoint to his intense Metal Machine Music album—but they are similar outliers in Reed’s 40+ year exploration of drone music and feedback harmonics.
The album has been remastered by the Grammy®-nominated engineer John Baldwin with vinyl pressed at Record Technology Inc. (RTI). The Double LP set is presented in a gatefold jacket designed by Grammy®-winning artist, Masaki Koike and features new liner notes by renowned Yoga instructor and author, Eddie Stern, who guided Reed’s practice for years. Also included in the physical editions is a fascinating conversation conducted earlier this year between author/journalist Jonathan Cott (Rolling Stone, The New Yorker) and Reed’s wife, artist Laurie Anderson, who discusses the album, as well as her husband’s devotion to Tai Chi – one of the album’s primary inspirations.
