Adam Cohen, son of the late singer-songwriter Leonard has put together a final album of material that he and his father were working on when Leonard died. Sony is releasing it in November, but the first single dropped this morning on q. Adam pulled together quite a team for this, including old bandmates of his father like Jennifer Warnes and Spanish guitarist Javier Mas, and artists of his own acquaintance like Feist and Richard Reed Parry (from Arcade Fire). Should be interesting.

And the article says that Adam undertook the project at the request of Leonard so it apparently has his father's blessing.

The Cohen commemorative stamps from Canada Post were also announced. I like the one of him sitting on his name, but all three are good, each capturing a different period in his lengthy musical and literary career.

New video out from the upcoming album and it is a beauty. Vintage Cohen. The symbolism of the video (a Jewish boy transforming into a Buddhist monk as he wanders through a forest) should be apparent if you are familiar with Cohen's life.

Someone will attempt to fix it because it doesn't suit their personal emotional status!

Interesting. A boy? I'm not so sure.

Yeah, I see your point. First time I watched on my phone but I watched it on my TV tonight and you're quite right.
The hidden incubus in the succubus ... or vice versa! This too is poorly understood ...
