Lou Reed has had an immeasurable influence on musicians both old and new, so we can only imagine Lana Del Rey's heartbreak having just missed her chance to work with him. In an interview with The Guardian, the chanteuse revealed that she planned to work with Reed on her new album Ultraviolence — particularly on retro ballad "Brooklyn Baby."

"I took the red eye, touched down at 7 a.m.… and two minutes later he died," she said.

Reed was the lead singer of experimental rock band The Velvet Underground as well as a solo artist with two albums, Transformer (1972) and Berlin (1973), named in Rolling Stone's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. He passed away on October 27, 2013 at 71-years-old.

Ultraviolence drops this Monday, June 16.
