Leonard Cohen, “You Want It Darker”, off his upcoming album by that name. (Which I have preordered, of course).
Leonard Cohen is preparing to die. Compression fractures in his spine have largely immobilized him so he will never be able to tour again, and he has become extremely frail. But his mind is still working, and sometimes his body works well enough to continue putting things in order. This album, on his 82nd birthday, is yet another part of that putting things in order.
