Afghan Whigs and Twilight Singers frontman Greg Dulli has recorded a Leonard Cohen cover as part of Rolling Stone‘s Old Ideas with New Friends series, which also features covers by artists such as Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox, Old 97s’ Rhett Miller, Cold War Kids and the New Pornographers’ A.C. Newman. Dulli took on Death of a Ladies Man‘s ‘Paper Thin Hotel’, explaining, “I wanted to do a version of this song because I think they might be my favorite set of Leonard Cohen lyrics. I think they kind of explain and validate love all at the same time.”
