If Songs for Drella seems modest from a musical standpoint, it's likely neither Reed nor Cale wanted the music to distract from their story, and here they paint a portrait of Warhol that has far more depth and poignancy than his public image would have led one to expect. It's a moving and deeply felt tribute to a misunderstood man, and it's a pleasure to hear these two comrades-in-arms working together again, even if their renewed collaboration was destined to be short-lived.
The album Songs for Drella is a collaboration between Lou Reed and John Cale, both former members of The Velvet Underground, that pays tribute to Andy Warhol. Warhol was The Velvet Underground’s benefactor. He brought the band to the attention of New York City’s avant-garde, contributed the artwork and funding for their first album, and was a source of inspiration for the band, most particularly Lou Reed. The nickname Drella, a combination of Dracula and Cinderella, was given to Warhol by actor and Warhol associate Ondine.

Songs for Drella is a concept album by The Velvet Underground alumni Lou Reed and John Cale. It was released in 1990 by Sire Records. The album is the pair's first collaboration since 1972, and is dedicated to the memory of Andy Warhol, their mentor, who had died unexpectedly in 1987. Drella was a nickname for Warhol, a portmanteau of Dracula and Cinderella, used by Warhol's crowd.
An entire album of Reed songs about Warhol might have worn thin, but by teaming up with Cale, it worked magically. There are no other musicians on the album, just Lou and his guitar and John on keyboards and viola, with both doing vocals. I was really excited by the amount of power just two people could do without needing drums," Cale told Musician magazine in 1990. Reed and Cale originally performed Songs for Drella live at the Church of St. Anne's in Brooklyn in January 1989, but it would be another year before it was recorded and released. During that time, Reed was enjoying his biggest success in years with the New York album.
