Lana Del Rey was on her way to record with Lou Reed when he died

LANA DEL REY has revealed she was on her way to work with rock icon LOU REED when he died last year (Oct13).

The Summertime Sadness singer had just landed in New York and was on her way to a studio meeting with the former Velvet Underground frontman when she learned he had passed away.

Del Rey tells Britain's The Guardian she wrote new track Brooklyn Baby with Reed in mind.

She says, "I took the red eye, touched down at 7am... and two minutes later he died."
