Leonard Cohen is only a few weeks away from releasing his new album Old Ideas, his first studio album since 2004’s Dear Heather.
We’ve already had a taste of a couple of songs from the album, such as Show Me The Place, which was released online back in November, and second single, Darkness. Now we have the premier of a new track called Going Home, which came after The New Yorker released the lyrics as a poem last week.
Old Ideas will be released on the 31st January.
Speaking about the album in the press release, Cohen states:
The album’s ten songs poetically address some of the most profound quandaries of human existence – the relationship to a transcendent being, love, sexuality, loss and death.
