A New Album Of Original Leonard Cohen Songs Is In The Works

The album ‘resembles his older work,’ says the late artist’s son and producer. When Leonard Cohen passed away in 2016 at the age of 82, he left behind not only a huge hole in the music world, but also a collection of unfinished songs, according to his son and producer, Adam Cohen, who is working to complete them. A new album, he says, can be expected next year.

    Sung at all by Leonard? Partially sung by Adam? Sung totally by Adam?
    Such wonderful news no matter how!!
    A collaboration akin to Adam’s helping his father get You Want It Darker completed.

    This is, of course, fantastic news. I wouldn’t mind at all if Adam worked for years on songs crafted from Leonard’s poems. On the other hand, I also think that You Want it Darker is un- top-able as a farewell album (regardless of whether or not Leonard intended it to be so). I think I would prefer any posthumous Leonard albums to be under Adam’s name

    This would be heavenly to hear him with words we haven’t heard… music and art are eternal when emanating from integrity and talent and Leonard Cohen.
