Leonard Cohen – Darkness

11.01.12, Words by: Charlie Jones

Listen to Leonard Cohen’s new song Darkness ahead of the release of his new album ‘Old Ideas’ on the 31st of January. The legendary singer songwriter has had quite an eventful few years since his last album, having toured the world twice, declared himself bankrupt and seen his works reach the dizzy heights of the X-Factor.

Darkness is the second track to be streamed off the forthcoming album, and is a bluesy track with an amazing Cohen vocal, some churchy organs, and a nice blend of dark subject-matter and lyrical musical touches. The first track off the album, ‘Show Me The Place’, can be heard at the Leonard Cohen Soundcloud page.
