Songs for Drella is a 1990 album by Lou Reed and John Cale, both formerly of the Velvet Underground; it is a song cycle about Andy Warhol, their mentor, who had died following routine surgery in 1987. Drella was a nickname for Warhol coined by Warhol superstar Ondine, a contraction of Dracula and Cinderella, used by Warhol's crowd but never liked by Warhol himself.

Variation: promo insert for the music video Songs For Drella and on the other side for Lou Reed, Neil Young and REM music videos Some copies came with a 4x5cm sticker on front, white letters on black (probably for the german market): L O U R E E D J O H N C A L E MIT DEUTSCHER TEXTBEILAGE. Lou Reed & John Cale - Faces And Names 4:18. Lou Reed & John Cale - Images 3:16. Lou Reed & John Cale - It Wasn't Me 3:26. Kick In The Eye by mrjohnkennedy.

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.
