Leonard Cohen is a man who needs no introduction, but we’ll remind you his upcoming record Old Ideas, out January 31, is his twelfth since 1967 and his first since 2004, so you should be pretty excited.

New track “Darkness” is the record’s second single (after “Show Me the Place”) – it’s at once soulful and dark, a secretive, sensual lounge-singer cut about catching darkness like a disease from a lover, the kind of thing you’d probably expect to see performed live if you stopped for a drink in the dead of night at a dive bar with an atmosphere as smoky as Cohen’s voice in a town with one streetlight five-hundred miles from home. Check it out.
