LEONARD CO­HEN Almost Like the Blues

Columbia Laugh­ing Len’s late pe­riod is prov­ing re­mark­ably pro­duc­tive. The Cana­dian recorded just nine al­bums be­fore qual­i­fy­ing for a bus pass. He has since recorded a fur­ther four. The lat­est of th­ese, Popular Prob­lems, is re­leased on Septem­ber 22nd, one day after his 80th birth­day. On this lead sin­gle, Co­hen sur­veys the mod­ern waste­land. “There’s tor­ture, and there’s killing, and there’s all my bad reviews . . . ”
