Description

At 82 years old, Leonard Cohen released his 14th studio album. A gift to his most diehard fans and perhaps an inside joke in some ways, as most Leonard Cohen fans will always want it darker. You Want It Darker holds a a realistically grim, spiritually radiant and deeply poetic worldview, generally spiked with a romantic thrum and an existential wink. Rife with sharp couplets and religious imagery, the album produced by his son Adam Leonard is perfectly paired with sumputous orchestral arrangements. Following a string of records that have each felt like a swan song, this may be Cohen’s most haunting record and is made more powerful by the fact it is his last.

Released on vinyl on the 9th of December.
