As reported, Columbia Records is marking the release of Leonard Cohen’s first album in eight years, Old Ideas, with a cover series called “Old Ideas With New Friends”. We’ve already heard reworkings of the legendary songwriter’s catalog by Cold War Kids, Cults, and The Afghan Whig’s Greg Dulli. Now, Pitchfork brings us Bradford Cox’s acoustic take on “Seems So Long Ago, Nancy”. Watch it here.
In more Bradford Cox news, Deerhunter’s contribution to the Japan benefit album We Are The Works In Progress recently hit the web. It’s an instrumental entitled “Curve”, and you can stream it below (via Stereogum).
