Leonard Cohen's son says that plans for a posthumous album are in the works

A posthumous Leonard Cohen album is being planned for release next year.

The news was confirmed by the late singer's son, Adam Cohen, who told CBC's q show - the full episode will air on Monday (October 1). "I believe that there are some really beautiful new songs of Leonard Cohen that no one’s heard that are at some point going to come out," he said.

The younger Cohen worked as a producer on his father's last album You Want It Darker, which was released in 2016.

The Flame, a new book of Leonard Cohen's poetry, is set to be released on Tuesday (October 2). You can find more information on that here.
