I listened to the new song. Maybe it's Netflix but the vocals sound awful. The vocals sounded seperate from the music. Not a good effect.

Ditto, Leslie!! Hearing that voice again brought a great beam of light into a somewhat grey day. Thank you, Leonard Cohen!!

Hi Rachel,
So nice to see you are around :D
I haven't heard that verse from LC's new song but the lyrics look good.
Shouldn't be too long now for the new album to be released.

EDIT: Peter, I was going to try to remain Patient ;-) but I would love to hear it too!

Nice to see you here too, Bev!

I tried to attach an mp3 recording of the song segment from the episode, which a very kind friend sent to me (thanks again, kind friend!), but I got a message about "invalid file extension. . " (whatever that means) & I couldn't attach it. So, for those who don't have netflix, I googled the episode, which will be released & online tomorrow (or soon thereafter), & I found this website where it can be watched, so if you go to the website, & go to the episode, & go 43:49 into the episode, I imagine you will be able to hear it. Here is the link to that website (though there are probably other websites which will also have it):

http://projectfreetv.us/peaky-blinders/ ... 38514.html

Or if someone has info on how I might attach the mp3 recording in the forum, let me know. . .

Peter & Bev, I just realized there is another fairly obvious way I can get it to you privately :roll:

Stay tuned, I'm working on it. . .

Hi Rachel
Its ironic as when the last 2 albums came out I didn't want to read one review or hear one note as I was saving it to savour at home on my own in bliss. This time I couldn't help myself I have been so ready and longing to hear Leonard's voice again. This song is almost spoken and it seemed to fit perfectly with the darkness of the visuals of the show. I am going to watch it from the beginning as I had never heard of it before. It looks heavy but also intriguing. The music I heard so far is awesome from other musicians. Leonard's voice at any age is so familiar to me its like 'coming home' or hearing an old friend again.
I am so looking forward to the new album as so many of us are.
Cheers!

If you find it particularly hard to wait: Netflix has a free trial month.

The third season of "Peaky Blinders" is available in the US catalogue (or even catalog) of Netflix.

I presume this is only a fragment of the song, and of course mixed up a bit with the programme soundtrack.
Whets our appetite for the new album

That is quite right Geoffrey, and I have corrected it.
I'm not yet ' salivating' at the prospect of a new album, but perhaps will when the release date is near- Time for lunch
