Hear Almost Like The Blues, first track off new LP Popular Problems

Last week, we heard that Leonard Cohen was releasing a new album. Now, Popular Problems has been confirmed, out on September 22 - a day after the great man turns 80 - via Columbia. Says the text accompanying the announcement: "Leonard Cohen gets down into the avenues of our dreams and sets a new tone and speed of hope and despair, grief and joy. Cohen here is an astonished lover rocking to the human condition as 'the soul unfolds in the chambers of its longing.'"

He's given us a first taste with 'Almost Like The Blues' - have a listen above.
