New: Leonard Cohen - "Going Home"


After teasing the slow jam of the moment, “Darkness” on the internet, Leonard Cohen’s turning to a different form of media to build buzz for his upcoming record Old Ideas – iconic culture magazine the New Yorker is publishing the lyrics of new track “Going Home” as a poem in this week’s issue, and they’re offering the mp3 for stream so readers can hear Cohen’s words in their intended setting.

It’s appropriately and classically sexy and surreal (with Cohen addressing himself in third person at some moments), like the slow-motion final scene of a movie – we love the atmospheric choir vocals that lead into a stirring climax. Old Ideas is out January 31.
