Follow-up from Barnes:
Code is UNIFIEDHEART
Please let me get the code field added again [on Monday morning] before you order, it seems to have disappeared!
Great. I'll put my order on Monday. Thanks, Jarkko.
Any chance for us to have a discount code for US shop?
Want to buy a bundle with the notebook and postcard.

Weilin they sent me a discount code when I didn’t complete my order due to shipping costs. But it didn’t apply to bundles ....

Meanwhile seems I’ve been fleeced on my order from the UK shop when they said the code was invalid. C’est la vie. I should have messaged Barnes to query it but was in a hurry to get some things cleared off my to do list.

By the way, the discount code field is there. You have to go to the checkout page and click on the down arrow for “Order details”. It’s the standard set up for retailers who use the Shopify platform.

Thanks, Wendy.
Sorry to learn that the code didn't apply to bundles. :cry:
Seems I have to pay $22.99 shipping to get a CD bundle.
Ouch.

My feelings exactly. Plus import charges, inflated by the high shipping cost. I’m still trying to decide how much I want the notebook .....

Are there actual songs on the album or just spoken word pieces?

You are a rather negative person, aren't you? Are you always like that, or is it just when you visit this forum to complain about what you dislike about any new Leonard Cohen albums (even before you've heard them)? Do you actually like Leonard Cohen, or do you just like to come here and be negative when new albums are released, being the personification of rain on a parade? Whatever the case, if being like this is simply your nature, that's rather unfortunate, but I suppose there's nothing you can do about it.

As for your question, how are we supposed to know what is on the album? We've only heard the first track. If there happens to be someone here with inside information as to the remainder of the album, I am quite sure that they aren't going to say anything about it before further official releases.

Also, define "song"? The Oxford English Dictionary provides numerous possibilities (https://www.lexico.com/en/definition/song), some of which would certainly include spoken word pieces set to music:

Song. Noun. Plural: songs.

1. a short poem or other set of words set to music or meant to be sung.
2. singing or vocal music.
3. a musical composition suggestive of a song.
4. the musical phrases uttered by some birds, whales, and insects...
5. a poem, especially one in rhymed stanzas.
6. poetry. (archaic)

Good day.

This clip reminds me of:
Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive, sung by Bing Crosby

You've got to accentuate the positive
Eliminate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with Mister In-Between

etc.

...You've got to accentuate the positive...

Indeed, and, in this case, it should not be all that difficult to do! I mean, after all:

1) We're getting a brand new Leonard Cohen Album!
2) We're getting a brand new LEONARD COHEN album!!
3) We're getting a BRAND NEW Leonard Cohen album!!!
4) We're getting a BRAND NEW LEONARD COHEN ALBUM!!!!
5) WE'RE GETTING A BRAND NEW LEONARD COHEN ALBUM!!!!!!!!

That should be more than enough to enable one to see the positive in all this, and to feel so incredibly fortunate that, hello!!, we're getting a brand new Leonard Cohen album!! :D

I happen to be in the know and I don’t have any problem with letting you know that Canada’s Cool Cat Diplomat is that Mister in-Between that our fathers were so afraid of.

That is what the new album will be all about. We have a taste of it in the title song where he sings “we’ve come to some sort of agreement” and from his last album wishing that there could be a treaty that he could sign.

Then again I have learned from experience that legacy can be greatly messed with. Will be watching closely to see who is being served.
