Leonard Cohen tops the carts around the world

The reverence and acclaim for Leonard Cohen’s Popular Problems, is undeniable as the album reached No. 1 in 29 countries on the iTunes chart. The album awarded Cohen his first ever No. 1 album in Austria and Switzerland and also topped the charts in Belgium, Canada, Holland and Portugal, and was the best-selling album of the week in Israel. Also, Popular Problems was Top 5 in an additional 15 countries.

Popular Problems, Cohen's 13th studio album, arrived in stores two days after his 80th birthday. The album gets down into the avenues of our dreams and sets a new tone and speed of hope and despair, grief and joy. Receiving 5 star reviews and album of the week nods worldwide, Popular Problems has earned its place amongst Cohen’s most respected works.

The Mail (UK) - 5 Star review, “a paradoxical crowd pleaser”; “the subject matter is heavy but the tone, as usual, is capable of levity.”
The Telegraph (UK) - 5 Star review, “at the age of 80, Leonard Cohen has created a masterpiece.”
The Sun (Canada) - Album of the Week, “it’s another slate of smart, sublime and sometimes hilariously horny song-poems about sex and love, sin and salvation, death and loneliness, war and horror.”

Popular Problems, in collaboration with co-writer Patrick Leonard, is a masterpiece from the ever-fresh imagination of a musical legend whose songs continue to captivate new listeners and devoted fans.
