Hallelujah video:
Abigail Portner directed a spooky video for Hallelujah set to the Fragments version of the Leonard Cohen song. Nice touch using rain sounds to refer to Shakespeare quote on the cover of the album.

John Cale will re-imagine The Velvet Underground & Nico once again in Liverpool @ the North Liverpool Docks on May 26, 2017 to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the album. He performed in its entirety this year at the Philharmonie de Paris on April 3.
