According to the biggest record shop in Finland, there will be a new release “Complete Studio Albums of Leonard Cohen”,
Boxed Set of 11 CDs. The date of release Is said to be October 10.
This box is listed in the new sales catalog of Bertus, Europe’s biggest record wholesaler located in Holland. The shop price in Finland would be 49,90 eur.
I have not been able to confirm this from other sources.

I meant to post about this earlier in the week. The box set is available to order on Amazon UK for a price of £34.66:

G*d help me, I must be so desperate for LC product at the moment ... I really want to order this box, even though I already have my treasured original vinyl albums (1960s onwards), plus all of them on CD plus the re-issues from a few years ago. Tony thinks I have lost it. He is probably right!

I have got the following info from Sony:
 
There are 11 CDs – all of which have been remastered except for the ones that were recently remastered in 2007. The albums are packaged in “wallets” so that they resemble mini-LPs and there is a booklet included in the box.

To confirm the albums included are:

Songs of Leonard Cohen
Songs from a Room
Songs of Love and Hate
New Skin for the Old Ceremony
Death of a Ladies’ Man
Recent Songs
Various Positions
I’m Your Man
The Future
Ten New Songs
Dear Heather

Thanks for this info! At first I thought: I have no need of this, I have all the albums! But, if they've ALL been remastered, and there is a BOOKLET, how can I resist?

Any word on whether any "bonus" songs will be included on the newly remastered albums (like the "new" songs we got on the first three albums)? That would make this set even more enticing!

"Remastered" like 2007 the remasters? Because all earlier "remasters" except those three digipacks in Remasters Series were not really remastered (from the original tracks).

This is a good idea, but it might have been a better idea to make a 12 album set when "Old Ideas" is released. I always thought that Leonard would make twelve studio albums, since 12 is a more "complete" number.

Lisa: There are no bonus tracks; these are simply the original albums as they were originally released (but remastered)

Thanks for the info, Jarkko.

Since I assume that there must be recorded but unreleased tracks from over the years, a really nice addition to a boxed set would be a CD with these unheard tracks on them. With Leonard Cohen's permission, of course! Maybe some day?

It seems to me that Sony are cashing in on L C's current popularity. I expect Leonard himself will not get much in the way of royalties following the sale of his back catalogue a few years ago.

But, a nice collection for a new fan to buy everything in one reasonably priced package.

Lisa: I don't think it will happen. As far as I understand, Leonard is very reluctant to release any half-finished, separate songs!

Ah, but doesn't he realize that his "half-finished" songs are better than almost every other artist's fully finished ones? :D
