Leonard Cohen, "You Want It Darker"

Don’t worry, you’ll get it.

I remember in 2001, when Ten New Songs came out, I thought to myself, “Wow, I thought I’m Your Man and The Future were Leonard’s late period, but I guess this is it.” It’s rare that I’m wrong but in this case I was and I could not be more happy about it. You Want It Darker comes out next month, and it’s the latest entry in what at this point we can consider Leonard’s late period… but who knows? Maybe he’ll never die. I would be okay with that. Enjoy.
