Hudson River Wind Meditations – Final Album from Lou Reed to Be Reissued

The album stems from his devotion to Tai Chi

Reissue label Light In The Attic has been running the Lou Reed Archival Series for a while now, for which it earned a GRAMMY nomination for Words & Music, May 1965. Now, that label is set to reissue his experimental album Hudson River Wind Meditations from 2007.

The album stems from Reed’s devotion in his later years to Tai Chi, yoga, and meditation for which Reed composed four compelling works, which comprise his 20th and final solo album.

The ambient compositions were initially created for Reed’s personal use, to accompany spoken-word meditations that his acupuncturist recorded for him. Over time, they transformed into music for Reed’s beloved Tai Chi and yoga practices. Eventually, the artist chose to share them with his fans, crafting them into an album with producer Hal Willner.

Included in the physical editions of the release is a conversation conducted earlier this year between author/journalist Jonathan Cott and Reed’s wife, artist Laurie Anderson, who discusses Hudson River Wind Meditations, as well as her husband’s devotion to Tai Chi — one of the album’s primary inspirations.
