NEW MUSIC FROM LEONARD COHEN – OUT NOW
November 22, 2019
In a posthumous new album, Leonard Cohen has robbed death of the last word. ‘Thanks For The Dance’ is out now.
‘Thanks For The Dance’ is not a collection of b-sides, rarities or live tracks. It is an entirely new album, crafted by Leonard’s son, Adam, in accordance with his father’s final wishes, in partnership with some of his most enduring collaborators and drawing on the musical, vocal and lyrical treasures remaining from their ‘You Want It Darker’ sessions.
“In composing and arranging the music for his words, we chose his most characteristic musical signatures, in this way keeping him with us,” said Adam Cohen. “What moves me most about the album is the startled response of those who have heard it. ‘Leonard lives’! they say, one after the other.”
