Leonard Cohen - Popular Problems
In Popular Problems, his thrilling new studio album, Leonard Cohen gets down into the
avenues of our dreams and sets a new tone and speed of hope and despair, grief and joy.
Cohen here is an astonished lover rocking to the human condition as "the soul unfolds in the
chambers of its longing." His legendary basso resonates as never before with a presence and
urgency that arises from the very depths of the heart. The clarity and strength of these nine
hypnotic songs will have us singing them over and over.
In collaboration with co-writer Patrick Leonard, Popular Problems is a masterpiece from the
ever-fresh imagination of a musical legend whose songs continue to captivate new listeners and
“Yet again, Leonard Cohen has broken musical boundaries with new creative inspiration,” says
Rob Stringer, Chairman/CEO of Columbia Records, “These nine new songs are simply sublime
and innovative with a unique spirit. We're absolutely thrilled and honored to celebrate this
milestone with him.”
Popular Problems is Cohen's 13th studio album, and will be released on September 22nd, a
day after his 80th birthday. Popular Problems is available for pre-order everywhere now.
