Leonard Cohen: 'Old Ideas'


Cohen previously recorded versions of 'Amen' and 'Lullaby' in 2007, while embryonic versions of 'Lullaby' and 'The Darkness' were recently performed on tour.

"As I grew older, I understood that instructions came with this voice," Cohen said when he received the Principe de Asturias Prize for literature in Spain in October.

"And the instructions were these... never to lament casually. And if one is to express the great inevitable defeat that awaits us all, it must be done within the strict confines of dignity and beauty."
