Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

For those who speak Spanish a nice article about Javier Más and his participation in the recordings of „Thanks for the dance“. And he confirmed that they recorded music for so many lyrics of Leonard that they didn‘t all fit to the new album... https://www.google.ch/amp/s/amp.heraldo.es/noticias/ocio...

New recording of the song "Book of longing"

Apparently, during the tribute concert in Montreal, while private pictures and videos of Leonard were shown, there was a mesmerizing song being played. I first thought it was a song that I had never heard, but when I listened closely to the words I discovered it was actually a new recording of the s...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Cheers mate. Anyone know exactly which of the songs were written and produced by Patrick Leonard and Sharon Robinson on the album? I wonder how many came out of the Popular Problems sessions.... no, I don't know the songs. 1. 4. 6. and 7 could be produced by Patrick Leonard and Sharon Robinson, if ...

Re: A cancelled world tour project in 2006?

Leonard had talked about putting a band together rather casually to Julian Coryell, a young musician whom he very much respected. Julian plunged ahead, gathered and rehearsed musicians and singers, and several weeks later, presented Leonard with a touring band. Leonard had not attended any of the r...

A cancelled world tour project in 2006?

More or less by coincidence, I read the following on the Wikipedia-page of singer Samantha Newark (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samantha_Newark): "In late 2006 she auditioned for Julian Coryell to be a backup singer for renowned poet laureate Leonard Cohen. The project was set to do a world tour an...

It's a few minutes past midnight, Wednesday September 21st, and "You want it darker", the single (4:44 minutes long), is now available on Spotify. Just listening to it on repeat...It's even more haunting and hypnotizing than I remembered it from the prelistening at the event in Amsterdam, especially...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

When I first read about Kalkbrenner doing a remix of "You want it darker", I thought: Oh no! But when I actually heard the first snippets and now the remix in full I must say that I absolutely love it, especially when the choir sets in and sings the "Hineni" part together with Leonard. I can't wait ...
