Leonard Cohen - Darkness
One of world's greatest treasures in both music and the written word has, at the spritely age of 77, dropped on us a new single. We first heard the tune on Rich Terfry's afternoon radio show Radio2 Drive (we love public radio) and was hooked right from the opening riff. The song is a seductive piece of poetry that chugs along nicely with a dirty blues sound, and of course Mr. Cohen's smokey voice. We can only hope we're as creative and relative at 77.
