I am so looking forward to another great album to add to Old Ideas and Popular Problems. I love them both.
Please keep them coming Leonard :) and thank you.

Leonard is working on new songs for another studio album, but the schedule remains open as long as the work continues; I think we have to be patient a bit longer (with this release!)!

I'm sure this won't be out until the Fall (Sept/Oct) at the earliest maybe later Nov/Dec.

The new studio album will come when it is ready.
When LC is ready.
And we will welcome it, whenever.

Another new song title for the coming studio album has been given by Leonard in an interview concerning the "Can't Forget" release:
In an interview with Rolling Stone around the time of Popular Problems, he explained how he knows when a song is working. "You can pretty well tell," Cohen said. "We play it for select people, like my daughter – there's a few people who aren't afraid to tell you that it isn't working. We had another song on the album, which was called 'Happens to the Heart,' which will be on the next album. It's a very good lyric, a very good tune, but we didn't nail it. So we didn't put each other on about it – not for more than a week or two."
( ... s-20150317)

So remembering the list by Goldin in the PP thread(viewtopic.php?f=82&t=35258&start=15) , this one can be added to the titles we know of

- the list again:
Let's remember, what do we know about recent unreleased LC songs.

a. Sylvie Simmons's interview (Mojo, March 2012).
b. Tom Sakic's overview post (latest version 2010-08-26): it contains lots of information and useful links for these songs.
c. Concert & soundcheck setlists.
d. Working track list of Old Ideas (the pre-last image here).
e. 2011-08-23 message.

1. Blue Alert (b)
2. [The] Book of Longing (b)
3. Born in Chains (c, e)
4. Don't Want to Break the Window (c)
5. Feels So Good / I've Got a Little Secret (c)
6. My Oh My (c)
7. Puppets (b, d)
8. Still Into That (A Thousand Kisses Deep No. 2) (b)
9. The Street (a, b)
10. Thanks for the Dance (a)
11. The Treaty (a, d)
12. Whither Thou Goest (a)
Positions 3, 4, 5, 6, 9 and 11 can be crossed out now I guess (assuming that "Treaty" is a former title for "Nevermind").
