Fliegen Sie zu Leonard Cohen nach Paris!
Wir verlosen in Kooperation mit Sony Music eine Reise nach Paris zur Vorstellung des neuen Albums "Old Ideas" von Leonard Cohen, der ebenfalls anwesend sein wird. Wie Sie gewinnen können, erfahren Sie hier.

Am 27. Januar erscheint "Old Ideas" - das erste Studioalbum seit acht Jahren von Leonard Cohen. Die wunderbar andächtige Stimmung, die seine Konzerte auf den letzten Welttourneen auszeichnete, findet sich auch in diesen zehn Songs wieder. Oder, wie Maik Brüggemeyer es in seiner Rezension in der Februarausgabe viel schöner formulieren wird:

"Leonard Cohen, der Liebhaber und Sinnsucher, der Mann in den eleganten Anzügen und dem Mönchsgewand, ist heimgekommen. Hat sein Apartment bezogen, ganz oben im Tower Of Song."

Wir verlosen nun in Kooperation mit Sony Music einen Preis, der exklusiver nicht sein könnte: eine Reise nach Paris (vom 14. – 17. Januar 2012) inkl. Flug und Hotelübernachtung für zwei Personen sowie den Besuch des Pre-Listenings von "Old Ideas" am Montag, den 16.01.2012, bei dem Leonard Cohen höchstselbst anwesend sein wird (Das Label behält sich Änderungen im Ablauf vor).

Für einen Preis dieser Art reicht es natürlich nicht, bloß eine Gewinnmail zu schicken. Dieses Event, das selbst vielen Musikjournalisten verwehrt bleibt, soll einen absoluten Fan von Leonard Cohen beglücken.

Deshalb möchten wir, dass Sie die Redaktion auf kreative Weise überzeugen, leidenschaftlicher Cohen-Fan zu sein. Einschränkungen gibt es dabei keine - Sie können Ihre Cohen-Sammlung für ein Foto festlich drapieren, Sie können uns ein Bewerbungsvideo schicken, Sie können uns eine Sammlung Ihrer privaten Cohen-Konzertfotos schicken, Sie können uns eine von Ihnen eingespielte Cover-Version schicken, Sie können uns Gedichte und Prosa schicken oder einfach eine leidenschaftliche Mail. An dieser Stelle sei jedoch darauf hingewiesen, dass wir ausgewählte Stücke aus den Bewerbungen auch auf www.rollingstone.de zeigen werden. Wer teilnimmt, stimmt also automatisch der Veröffentlichung zu.

Die "Bewerbung" bitte an verlosung@rollingstone.de schicken und mit dem Stichwort "Leonard Cohen" versehen. Für größere Datenmengen empfehlen wir Transferseiten wie zum Beispiel We Transfer. Bitte dabei auch die vollständige Postadresse sowie eine Telefonnummer angeben. Der Einsendeschluss ist der 04. Januar.

On 27 January seems "old ideas" - the first studio album in eight years by Leonard Cohen. The wonderfully reverent mood that characterized his performances at the last world tour, finds himself in these ten songs. Or, as Maik Brüggemeyer will put it in his review in the February issue much better:
"Leonard Cohen, the lover and searcher for meaning, the man in the natty suits and the monk's robe, is come home. Has obtained his apartment, the top of the Tower of Song."
We're giving away now in cooperation with Sony Music a price that could not be exclusive: a trip to Paris (October 14 - 17 January 2012) including flights and hotel accommodation for two persons and the visit of the pre-listenings of "Old Ideas "On Monday, 16.01.2012, even at the highest Leonard Cohen will be present (The label retains changes in discharge).
For this sort of price it is obviously not enough to merely send a winning email. The event, which itself remains denied to many music journalists, an absolute fan of Leonard Cohen happy.

That's probably right! Or maybe it relates to the general European area.
I can't see them paying for a return flight from and to Australia......unfortunately :(

Great admission Eva :!: :!:

So as you are from Hungary, apparently they are not only accepting German participants :idea:
Still hope for me and all others from neighbouring countries :shock:

Thanks :) Well, I'm not sure about it. I sent my submission in German (thanks, Heike, for the wonderful translation <3 ), I admitted that I was from Hungary, but along with my own (Hungarian) address I presented the address of my German relative as well, stating that it's not mine, and that I won't mind if the departure was from Germany.

I don't know if it makes any difference and they still may refuse me as competitor, even though they used my pic :(
(Btw, I gave them the flash version and some other goodies like my "saints bracelet" as well :D )
