Leonard Cohen’s New Album, Old Ideas: Stream It for Free Online

Fans of Leonard Cohen, you’ve waited patiently. Seven long years. Now it’s finally here. Cohen’s new album Old Ideas officially hits the streets next week. But it’s now streaming online for free courtesy of NPR. It will only last a limited time. So settle in now and listen to the ten tracks, which as Guardian critic Kitty Empire puts it, are not about “death, betrayal and God, juicy as these are,” but rather “the stuff that has made Cohen indispensable for six decades: desire, regret, suffering, misanthropy, love, hope, and hamming it up.”

The poetic lines of the first track, “Going Home,” have been published in The New Yorker. You can pre-order the album here. H/T @opedr
