New Old Ideas From Leonard Cohen

Leonard Cohen’s comeback will continue next year. The lauded songwriter will release Old Ideas, his first studio album in eight years on January 31 via Columbia Records. Cohen’s camp describes the release as the follow:

The album’s ten songs poetically address some of the most profound quandaries of human existence – the relationship to a transcendent being, love, sexuality, loss and death. Arguably the most overtly spiritual of the revered artist’s albums, Old Ideas inspires commitment to a greater sense of compassion and decency. The new record is available for preorder now at LeonardCohen.com. Listen to the new track, “Show Me The Place” below. Fans who pre-order will receive an instant download of the new song.

The album was produced with the help of Patrick Leonard, Anjani Thomas, Ed Sanders and Dino Soldo. Vocalists Dana Glover, Sharon Robinson, The Webb Sisters (Hattie and Charley Webb) and Jennifer Warnes also appear on select tracks while
Cohen designed the album’s art.
