"Popular Problems" - the next LC album (late September 2014)

Postby Goldin on Thu Aug 07, 2014 8:18 pm

A news flash from a friend in Dublin (thank you!) - just a few (but so important!) lines from Jarkko's foreword in the Event booklet:

Leonard has worked hard on his next studio album of entirely new songs.
He asked me to let you know that “Popular Problems” will be out at the end of September, shortly after his 80th birthday.

Very good news , and i'm afraid it immediately led me to think about the possibility , just mere possibility , of a ' popular problems' tour next year .
Certainly the 'problem' of getting tickets , hotel rooms , and travel would not prove too unpopular with most forum members.

Anyway just a dream , but tremendously looking forward to the reality of the new CD :D
Leonard's work resonates

Is this a hard release date? Or could this be delayed several months and be released in 2015?

More comfort to come. It is not a luxury.

Does it look like a whine to you? I hope not. It is just that our present times are generating problems over problems. That's life.

Looking forward to this. I shall (hopefully - all going well) be listening to this on the headphones at the maternity hospital. The 4th - and last (my own too popular problem)! - of my contribution to future Cohen fans is due in October.

Wonderful news. I am counting the days. Amazon doesn't have it listed yet, though.

What a fantastic piece of news to wake up to. I love the title.

With this coming out in only six weeks, I wonder where that leaves the release of the live dvd?

Fantastic!

Really looking forward to see the song list.
Maybe some of the lost songs from the 2011(?) tour will be there?
Born in chains, Feels so good, etc?
