The promo-single for the Russian Leonard Cohen Tribute has just been published at Cohen's Russian Web to download it (link over the cover art pic). The download includes 2 songs and cover art.

My guess is that you are the first one in the entire world to cover this song...
Well done.
Sounds good.

Here you are now the "B-side" :) of the Promo SP from the Russian LC Tribute project, HUNTER'S LULLABY (cover by Daniel Granado)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fd5s-yL ... tube_gdata

This cover, besides my cover of "Almost Like the Blues" (Side A :)) (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84p5uzYEOqk) make up the 2 songs for the SP they've chosen in Russia to promote the tribute project to LEONARD COHEN for his 80th birthday and the song will have more surprises in its last version, when publishing the project ...
I know I'm Spanish, not Russian, but they kindly wanted me to collaborate with these two covers, which I've appreciated very much! I'm deeply honoured.

You'll listen to it soon...

In the meantime, here's a pre-listening of it

ENJOY!!

All kinds of comments are deeply welcome in your posts!
