Lucy Jones: pop grandfather Leonard Cohen just gets better with age

IT’S easy to forget that Leonard Cohen is pushing 80. Well, he's 77. Today he dropped a new track called Darkness on his website and Soundcloud..

The song is the second single from his new album Old Ideas (his 12th and first for eight years) which will be released on January 31.
