best albums of 2016 Leonard Cohen

At 82 years old, Montreal’s brooding bard Leonard Cohen, is planning to release his fourteenth studio album. Due out this fall on Sony, You Want It Darker is produced by the songwriter’s son Adam Cohen, and as the title suggests, it will be a return to the lyrically haunting Cohen. The forthcoming release follows 2014’s relatively upbeat effort, Popular Problems. The album cover and tracklist are featured below. We expect more concrete album details will follow.
