Leonard Cohen’s first studio album in seven years, Old Ideas, is due later this month, and this week he treated us to another great track from the LP. Following the gorgeous first cut, ‘Show Me the Place’, is a slow burn called ‘Darkness’, which features an impressive Memphis soul organ solo. Old Ideas is shaping up to be something special, so be sure to mark the album’s January 31st release date on your calender.
