Listening to Thanks for the Dance, the album of Leonard Cohen’s final songs. 🎡

What is immediately striking about Thanks for the Dance is how organic these meticulously constructed songs sound, given that five of them were assembled from the barest musical sketches and four others from lyrics Leonard had recited, but not put to music. It sounds, above all, like a labour of love, and one that is entirely faithful to Cohen’s abiding spirit.
