:D What absolutely wonderful news. Bless you Leonard; you've come up with the very best tribute for your own 80th birthday yourself. Now I don't feel so sad about the beautiful bunch of roses that the doorman confiscated prior to your Auckland concert last year. I was in the front row and really wanted to jump up and give them to you!

PS: I'm writing because I'm absolutely sure that you read this loving forum!

There are a number of websites that list upcoming album release dates - all the way through November. None of them mentions Popular Problems.

Probably beacause there has been no Official announcement yet.

Here we go, folks... :D

Let's hope the release is on schedule. I seem to recall that OI was tentatively scheduled for September that year then got pushed back til January. Those with a better memory will either confirm or correct that notion.

And man oh man I hope BIC is on there!

Either way-- the new album is coming! And let's hope some reliable hints and rumors about a possible you-know-what come our way as the album is released.

Firstly I've thought: is it Leonard Cohen's turn to make the White or Black Album, after The Beatles and Metallica (and The Simpsons with their The Yellow Album)? Then I saved the image to my PC and learned it's just leonard-cohen-popular-problems-2014-album-not-final-artwork.jpg

But look what did I find on the same page:

Udgivelse: 22-09-2014
