New Leonard Cohen song “Darkness”

Check out the Leonard Cohen song, Darkness, taken from his forthcoming new album, Old Ideas, due out January 30th. It’s a stately four and a half minutes, featuring twanging guitars, warm organ swells and shapely backing vocals to go with Cohen’s croon. While giving the speech at Cohen’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Lou Reed described Cohen as belonging to the “highest and most influential echelon of songwriters.” This album will only extend his reputation.
