Cohen's back with Old Ideas
Singer and poet Leonard Cohen will release his first studio album in eight years in January following the success of his comeback world tour, his publicists said on Tuesday.
Called Old Ideas, the album has 10 songs looking at love, sexuality, loss and death and is described as the most overtly spiritual of the singer's 40-year recording career.
Cohen, 77, best known for haunting 1960s folk songs like Suzanne, Bird on a Wire and later Hallelujah, retreated from the world in the mid-1990s to become a Buddhist monk.
Old Ideas is set for release on January 31, 2012.
