''Animal Serenade'' is a Lou Reed live album recorded in Los Angeles at the Wiltern Theatre in 2003 after ''The Raven''. The show features a drummer-less band (including Mike Rathke on guitar/synth, bassist Fernando Saunders, and the cello of Jane Scarpantoni). Reed delivers dramatic readings of some of his most compelling work. In addition, Antony Hegarty, of Antony and the Johnsons fame, contributes background vocals throughout and sings the lead on "Set The Twilight Reeling" and "Candy Says."

Fernando Saunders plays bass and other instruments. He did background vocals on most songs and sang lead vocals on "Tell It to Your Heart" & "Reviens Cherie", scat on "Sunday Morning".

Three songs were performed during the concert, but did not appear on the album: "Sweet Jane", "The Last Shot" and "Perfect Day" (sung in duet with Antony).

"Sweet Jane" is available by digital download.

''Animal Serenade'' was produced by Lou Reed and Fernando Saunders.
