Here’s a trailer for the new documentary on the Velvet Underground

The joke goes that when the Velvet Underground was around in the 60s and very early 70s, they never sold any albums. But everyone who bought one ended up forming a really important band. Why? Maybe this new documentary by Todd Haynes will explain everything.

Entitled The Velvet Underground: A Documentary Film by Todd Haynes, it will debut on Apple+ TV on October 15. A two-CD companion soundtrack will be available that same day.
