So in addition to Vimeo’s still ongoing “Old Ideas With New Friends” series, which has already seen Bradford Cox, Cold War Kids, Cults, and The Afghan Whig’s Greg Dulli cover tracks from the great Leonard Cohen, there’s also a covers album of Cohen’s 1967 debut that comes included in the new issue of MOJO magazine. Contributing artists included Bill Callahan, Cass McCombs, The Low Anthem, Field Music, and ex-Fleet Fox’er Father John Misty, as well as Marc Ribot and My Brighest Diamond, who teamed up for a bonus track version of “Bird on the Wire” from Cohen’s 1969 album Songs from a Room. You can stream snippets of the entire thing below, or throw down £6.50 for a physical copy.
Cohen’s first album in eight years, Old Ideas, is out now. It was worth the wait.
