Sounds great. I love the idea that Leonard likes him some sick beatz.

Great stuff- and good to know we'll be able to get our hands on the single and the remix by the end of the month. I'll be getting both for sure - can you tell us the exact release date Jarkko?

John Mulvey, editor of Uncut:

"Also the Leonard Cohen album is, I’m pretty convinced, his best this millennium; can’t wait to share some of that when tracks become available…"

Very encouraging! Any album better than Ten New Songs, Old Ideas and Popular Problems is an album worth salivating over...

Here's the Uncut cover containing the review of You Want It Darker. (See the Leonard Cohen mention at the very top.) Uncut says: Out next Tuesday in the UK, but subscribers should hopefully see their copies at the weekend

By the way, Uncut editor also tweeted this:

Our new, improved reviews section, lead by a magisterial piece by @jandersonesque on what I think might be one of Leonard Cohen's best LPs.

The Uncut reviewer tweeted this last night:


@Bakero1973 It's fantastic! Think New Skin for the Old Ceremony, this time with a synagogue choir

Yes, this song will be the first promotional single; can be streamed from various sources next week.
Official announcement of the album also coming very soon, followed by the album itself about one month later.
Exact days to be confirmed locally.

Hi Jarkko,

Do you know if there will be any special edition vinyl releases? I want to pre-order, but if there will be a special version I would rather purchase that.
