In this vastly improved Internet age, we often get 'gifted' with an early listen of a highly anticipated album. With the immense success of Leonard Cohen, especially at this stage in his life, fans of the Zen master should be extremely pleased that a new album of music is on its way.
With music that is spare and somewhat jazzy, Old Ideas is a splash into a deep philosophical pool that is expressed so well by Mr Cohen, who is a skilled mouthpiece for many of us.
Enjoy the NPR Radio stream of the full album.
