Info for Old Ideas

Old Ideas, the highly anticipated 10-song collection of new material from poet / singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, arrives in stores today. Both The Washington Post (US) and The Telegraph (UK) declare Old Ideas 'a work of genius,' and worldwide praise continues to mount.

In his sixth decade of producing critically-acclaimed music, Cohen remains at the top of his game, a rare event for an older artist. As Chris Lackner of Postmedia News (Canada) observes, “The fact that this is Cohen's best work in years indicates that, although he may be at ease with the passage of time, he has far from finished bestowing his poetic gifts upon us... Cohen may have Old Ideas, but they're damn good ones. TV may have The Voice, but Cohen IS The Voice.”

'[A]n album that pores over the passing and the past with such defiant, deadpan nobility.' (Uncut)

'The sparse production recalls Cohen's 1988 release, I'M YOUR MAN, by throwing the Canadian balladeer's ever-deepening voice and his mix of poetic flair and pitch-black humor into satisfyingly stark relief.' (Billboard)

'Tempos are at a kingsnake crawl and the sound is full of caresses, variations on the classy but louche cabaret tunes Cohen once dubbed the European blues.' (Rolling Stone)

Recorded in 2007, January–August 2011
Produced by Ed Sanders
