As solid as the songs on his new album are, Father John Misty still likes to toss a reverential cover or two into his setlists. Recently, that’s included a version of the title track from Leonard Cohen’s 1988 album I’m Your Man.

On Monday evening, J. Tillman was performing in Cohen’s hometown of Montreal, and used the opportunity to treat locals to his rendition of the Bard of the Boudoir’s slinky tune. Watch video of the performance below.

Here’s a more complete performance of the cover from a show earlier this year at the El Rey in Chico, California.

ICYMI, Father John Misty appropriately released a version of Nirvana’s “Heart-Shaped Box” on Valentine’s Day. Check that cover out here.
