Just in time for Leonard Cohen’s birthday next month comes word of a new album recorded over the past couple of months.
Columbia Records says the album will be called “You Want It Darker” which is also the title of the opening track. Columbia says says the album, as the title suggests, is haunting in sound and in line with the classic work of the legendary Canadian singer, songwriter and poet.
Cohen’s last album “Popular Problems” was released 2014. It was a collection of somber, reflective tracks that delved into his favorite topics of lost love and the quest for spiritual meaning.
Cohen turns 82 on September 21st.
Zoomer radio celebrates the life and times of Leonard Cohen with “The Leonard Show” every Saturday and Sunday from 4:30 to 5 pm.
