Columbia Records celebrated Leonard Cohen's 82nd birthday year with the release of the legendary singer/songwriter's fourteenth studio album, the haunting You Want It Darker. This great artist continues to astonish us. Uncompromising and urgent, You Want it Darker is the last chapter in Leonard's significant contribution to contemporary music.

Produced by his son, Adam Cohen, the startling and beautifully realized album is not one a young talented artist - even a young, talented Leonard Cohen - could have written. You Want It Darker reflects the perspective of a genius who has experienced a long, self-aware life viewed with profound honesty and expressed with expertise, authenticity, and graciousness.

Cohen states, "As I grew older, I understood that instructions came with this voice. What were these instructions? The instructions were never to lament casually. And if one is to express the great inevitable defeat that awaits us all, it must be done within the strict confines of dignity and beauty."

The lead single and title track delves into an unflinching exploration of the religious mind. Cohen created this hypnotic groove with the addition of Montreal's Cantor Gideon Zelermyer and the Shaar Hashomayim Synagogue Choir, whose voices invoke a sound from Cohen's youth.
