Leonard Cohen releases Can’t Forget: A Souvenir of the Grand Tour on 11 May, 2015. The ten songs of this hypnotic album are Cohen rarities recorded on his recent, celebrated “Old Ideas World Tour.” Last September’s Platinum selling Popular Problems recently garnered four nominations at the prestigious Canadian Juno Award 2015 and won the coveted ‘Album of the Year’.
The songs on Can’t Forget have the immediacy, spontaneity, and thrilling intimacy of the best studio recordings made in the white heat of live performance and Cohen’s legendary soundchecks, in which he brings the colours of his virtuoso band to full bloom in harmony with his voice, never more seductive. Here is a full range of Leonard Cohen’s work: new songs including, from the realm of blues, the wickedly funny “Got a Little Secret” and “Never Gave Nobody Trouble”; luxurious performances of such Cohen masterpieces as “I Can’t Forget,” “Light As a Breeze,” “Night Comes On,” and a sublime “Joan of Arc”. Cohen also treats us to a gripping version of the Quebecois love song “La Manic,” performed before a captivated audience in Quebec City, and a moving tribute cover of the late country master George Jones’s “Choices.” These are songs and performances of the first order that you can’t forget.
To celebrate the release of the album we’ve got 5 copies of the album to give away. All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is answer one simple question.
The competition closes at 23.59 (GMT) on Thursday 28th May 2015.
