“Going Home”

    On Jan 31, Leonard Cohen issues his first new album since 2004, Old Ideas, and it’s sounding pretty great already. The last single, “Darkness,” was one of the better Cohen songs, period, and now here’s a new one called “Going Home” that’s pretty great too. It appears this week in the New Yorker in poem form, but this version renders the poem as a prayer like devotion, complete with backing singers at the end. Old Ideas is turning in a dark horse performance here for best album of January, and we’ve only heard a few songs. You can stream the song below via the New Yorker.
