The term 'singer, songwriter, poet' has been tied to many a pithy pop star, but Mr Leonard Norman Cohen is the real deal. The singer still tours constantly, the songwriter has sold 20 million albums and the poet has published 12 books.
His new album "Old Ideas" (we love the irony of this) features 11 new tracks, yet some have been in the works for years. Leonard's brought in a selection of ethereal vocalists to balance his all consuming, signature baritone, which remains largely unchanged - if a little huskier - 45 years on.
The album comes out on February 3, but we have five copies to give away thanks to Sony. Email here with your name and address to enter.
