„Show Me The Place“ – Leonard Cohen

Old Ideas, Leonard Cohen’s first album of new material in eight years, will be released January 31st, 2012. Old Ideas will be Leonard’s twelth studio album with Columbia Records since signing with the label in 1967. Consisting of ten new songs, Old Ideas poetically addresses (no surprise) spirituality, love, sexuality, loss and death.

Fans were given a hint of what to expect when Cohen made remarks as the recipient of the 2011 Prince of Asturias Award for Letters in Spain in October:

„As I grew older, I understood that instructions came with this voice. And the instructions were these… Never to lament casually. And if one is to express the great inevitable defeat that awaits us all, it must be done wtihin the strict confines of dignity and beauty.
