I know we need Patience - lots of it.
But is there any clue as to when the new album might be out ?

Agree that fragment sounds great .Love the organ and leonard's voice.
Sounds like it would unfold into a great Leonard song.

This is all new to me, too.

Holydove ~ such an excellent review. Could be used in any publication! Makes me want to see this series for sure. Here I thought the Clockwork Orange gang was dreadful enough.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Jarkko. Looking forward to that new album, too... whenever it appears.

I just binge watched Peaky Blinders last week. I've heard people talking about it, so I decided to give it a chance. Boy, am I glad that I did. The show is fantastic...if you don't mind a fair amount of violence or blood. It's not gratuitous though. I was engrossed in the episode when I heard the first few words of Leonard's new song come out of my TV. "Holy $h*t! That's Leonard Cohen...That's gotta be a new song!!" Anyways, I backed up the video to the beginning of the song probably four or five times. I can't wait for a new album.

This song You Want It Darker at the moment is the last title listed in my book I’m working on – and no, I’m nowhere near finished! While entering it one line “If thine is the glory” seemed very familiar. Maybe a coincidence but it instantly reminded me of the traditional ending of The Lord’s Prayer from the Bible, Matthew 6:13 -

“for thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever, amen”

There’s also a hymn with the title and first line of “Thine is (be) the glory” written by Edmond L. Budry in the late 1800’s. http://www.hymntime.com/tch/htm/t/h/i/thineist.htm

Just a passing observation :)

“If you are the dealer
Let me out of the game
If you are the healer
I'm broken and lame

If thine is the glory
Mine must be the shame
You want it darker
We kill the flame”

....and another more than passing look and thought - it's been three months almost to the day since we heard that verse and I wonder when we will hear the rest of the song! Yes, I know the "P" word should be the last word here....and so it is ....for now ;-)

Hoping this is a hint that the new album is coming sooner rather than later.
That would be good.
