Leonard Cohen’s Old Ideas, his 12th studio album, will be released a week from today. If I might I offer a suggestion, listen to the album cold – sans any outside editorial critique. You’ll be glad you did…it’s worth it.

You can stream to the record, in its entirety, here.

  2. Definitely agree with you on that one! I’m loving “Darkness” off his new album right now. Pitchfork actually has it available for streaming on their site too: http://pitchfork.com/news/45048-listen-to-the-new-leonard-cohen-single/
