Leonard Cohen Ten New Songs 180g Import LP
180 Gram Vinyl! Feautres Guest Artist Sharon Robinson!
During the 9 years prior to the release of "Ten New Songs", the legendary
songwriter Leonard Cohen spent most of his time in a Zen monastery, obsessively
rewriting and polishing the lyrics for this austere collection. "Ten New Songs"
is arguably Sharon Robinson's record as much as Cohen's as she co-wrote all the
songs, plays most of the instruments and accompanies Cohen's gloomy croak with
her own crooning.
This is the most subdued album Cohen's ever made. It's as if he no longer has
time for anything in music or performance that could alter the meaning and force
of his words.
Various artists have covered Cohen's songs off this album. Eric Burdon and Katie
Melua both covered "In My Secret Life" for their own albums and Jonathan Richman
covered 'Here It Is".
"Ten New Songs" was the first Cohen album to be recorded and produced digitally,
now enjoyable again on 180g vinyl.
