Wonderful, wonderful! :D
You let me sing, you lifted me up, you gave my soul a beam to travel on. You folded your distance back into my heart.

It looks like leonardcohen.com got a facelift ahead of the press release.

What I find interesting is the "Tour" section. There is nothing in there now, but I can't imagine why they'd spend time building it if it isn't going to be used.

Good point, jontas! Maybe, if they build it, he will come. . .

Something to look forward to! I love the picture of LC in his garden, mostly because it shows signs of dogs frolicking in the grass.

As for me,
the good news is that we still can use his Lullaby,
the bad news is there's no Book Of Longing ("I can't make the hills" ... "I know she is coming"),
and the worst news is the absence of A Street.

Oh tangle of matter and ghost
Oh darling of angels, demons and saints

Leonard designed the cover, using a photo by Kezban Özcan. The CD booklet will be designed by Michael Petit.
