New from Leonard Cohen

Let’s face it, way too many great musicians died during the past decade, and the year ain’t over yet. Hell, in 2016, everytime someone started trending on twitter, it became way too easy to fear the worst. One of the most missed around 17 Seconds Towers is the Canadian legend Leonard Cohen.

However, a posthumous album is on its way on November 22. Entitled Thanks For The Memories, it’s been developed by his son Adam, and sees him completing the musical sketches that he left behind for his final album, You Want It Darker.

The album tracklisting is as follows:

  1. Happens To The Heart
  2. Moving On
  3. The Heart Of Santiago
  4. Thanks For The Dance
  5. It’s Torn
  6. The Goal
  7. Puppets
  8. The Hills
  9. Listen To The Hummingbird

The first track to be made available ‘The Goal’ is scarcely more than a minute long (i.e. it’s even shorter than ‘Velocity Girl’ or ‘Final Day’ but it’s amazing.

As a bonus, here’s the maestro doing ‘Take This Waltz’ from London (circa 2008, I think), it’s stunning.
