Listen to a new Leonard Cohen song, album details announced

Poet, singer, songwriter Leonard Cohen is set to release a new record in January 2012. Entitled Old Ideas, the album will be his first in eight years.

Cohen won the Principe de Asturias Prize for literature in Spain in October of this year, on receipt he remarked:

“As I grew older, I understood that instructions came with this voice. And the instructions were these: Never to lament casually. And if one is to express the great inevitable defeat that awaits us all, it must be done within the strict confines of dignity and beauty.”

‘Show Me The Way’ is a mournful and gut-wrenching sweep off the LP, full tracklisting and artwork below.

‘Going Home’
‘Amen’
