Thanks For The Dance – New Leonard Cohen

When word started coming down about a new Leonard Cohen album there was real buzz. Since his death in 2016 his fans have been waiting to hear something, anything. And here we are.

“After it was confirmed in 2018 that a posthumous album is in the works, ‘Thanks For The Memories’ will now arrive on November 22.

The record was developed by Cohen’s son Adam and saw him fulfilling his father’s wish to complete the “bare musical sketches” that he left behind from his final album ‘You Want It Darker’.

In doing so, Adam recruited the likes of Spanish guitarist Javier Mas – who accompanied Leonard on stage for the last eight years of touring.”
