Leonard Cohen celebrated his 82-th birthday by the release of a new song. The composition ‘You Want It Darker’ appeared on the YouTube channel of the artist on September 21, 2016.
Cohen is preparing to release the self-titled album. The composition will enter the singer’s 14th album, which will be released on October 21 via Sony.
The song is sustained in the style of confession, in which the singer says: “I’m ready, my Lord”. At the same time the motive of death is present in the works of Cohen with his very first album, so do not think about sad.
‘You Want It Darker’ is declared as a decisive study of the religious mind. Reflections of Cohen’s song are emphasized by backing vocals of another Canadian Gideon Zelermyer and choir of Shaar Hashomayim Synagogue.
‘You Want It Darker’ will be the 3rd album of Cohen in the last 4 years.
