leonardcohendarkness Check Out: Leonard Cohen   Darkness

On January 31st, Leonard Cohen returns with Old Ideas, his first album in eight years. We’ve already had our first listen with “Show Me the Place”, and now comes our second with “Darkness”. Classic Cohen, you might say, with a lurching crawl that’s both gloomy and menacing. Not exactly as dark as, say, Tom Waits, but Cohen does have one moody outlook on things, especially when he croons, “The present’s not that pleasant, just a lot of things to do.” Can’t argue there. Check it out below (via Pitchfork).

Old Ideas hits stores January 31st via Columbia. Pre-order?

Old Ideas Tracklist:
01. Going Home
02. Amen
03. Show Me the Place
04. The Darkness
