leonard cohen – you want it darker

you want it darker — leonard cohen


i did not know that i wanted a darker leonard cohen. he recorded this album from his deathbed. he flew the background singers in from from his family’s synagogue in montreal. it turns out that if this is what is on offer, if this is cohen’s swan song then yes, i do want it darker.
