Leonard Cohen’s Old Ideas Still Relevant


On an release-wise unusually boring January, the return of Leonard Cohen has unexpectedly become the most exciting thing the record industry got on offer, unless you really dig Lana Del Rey’s album. The veteran writer, who recently came to London for a record presentation where Jarvis Cocker led a funny interview, has crafted his stronger collection since ‘I’m Your Man’ and ‘Come Healing’, one of Old Ideas’ standout tracks, tops the current edition of the loop.

Among the entries of the week we can find the latest offerings by Ladyhawke, Grizzly Bear’s Daniel Rossen ; The Men and Greg Dulli whom, fresh from announcing a comeback tour with The Afghan Whigs, is one of the chosen artists to cover a selection of (again) Leonard Cohen’s classics in the video series ‘Old Ideas By New Friends’ alongside Cults, Bradford Cox; New Pornographer A.C. Newman; etc.
