Plus! Lyrics in the New Yorker

Another track from Leonard Cohen's forthcoming album has surfaced online. 'Going Home', which has been posted online to coincide with the publication of the lyrics in The New Yorker's poetry section this week, is the third track from Old Ideas to appear on the internet. It features the excellent opening lines "I love to speak with Leonard / He's a sportsman and a shepherd / He's a lazy bastard / Living in a suit". Read the rest of the lyrics here. The album, which features Cohen’s first original material since 2004, is set for release on January 30th.
