"It's Torn" by Leonard Cohen

By Ventipop @ventipop

A collection of previously unheard Leonard Cohen material was released a few weeks ago titled Thanks for the Dance, an album described by representatives for the late songwriter as "an unexpected harvest of new songs" and "a continuation of the master's work".

Cohen had asked his son, Adam, to complete the sketches left over from their prior collaboration on You Want It Darker, released in October 2016. Cohen died a month later, aged 82. Seven months after his father's death, Cohen Jr began working on the material alone in a garage near his father's old house, later inviting other contributors to be part of the process. Cohen was obviously a master poet and songwriter and "It's Torn" makes me realize all over again what we lost when he passed.
