Almost Like the Blues - Single

Oh to be as cool as Leonard Cohen on the cusp of 80! Our favourite Bard is back, and in potent and typically poetic form on new single "Almost Like The Blues". It is the first single from upcoming new album Popular Problems, coming on Sept. 23, two days after that big birthday. To these ears, it is his strongest new song in a while. The vocal performance is more narration than singing, but it is suitably authoritative, and the sparse arrangement frames it perfectly. The track has rapidly notched 350k YouTube plays, confirming that global interest in our homeland hero is as strong as ever.

No tour dates have been announced just yet.
