This is a very special Wednesday for me. Why? Because the incredible songwriter Leonard Cohen just released his new Old Ideas album! At age 77, Leonard is just as dapper, talented, and insightful as ever.
Take a moment. This man’s words are sure to feed your soul.
Before we get to the new stuff, here’s my all-time favorite:
“There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.” Love. Love. Love.
- Listen to the new album (FREE! courtesy of Spinner).
- Check out this project to honor him, with covers by new artists like Cold War Kids.
- Read this lovely write up on Leonard and his new album from the New York Times.
- Hear one of his spoken-word poems, “Democracy” (eerily on point in modern-day America).
Thank you, Leonard, for continuing to reach out—and reach in.
