NPR Music has Exclusive First Listen: Leonard Cohen Hear His New Album, ‘Live in London,’ In Its Entirety.
Now 72 years old, Leonard Cohen has spent much of the past decade in solitude, exploring his own spirituality and his place in an ever-changing world. But in July of 2008, he took the stage at London’s 02 Arena and gave a stunning performance, as part of his first tour in 15 years. The concert included some of his most influential and best loved songs, including “Hallelujah,” “Bird On A Wire” and “Dance Me To The End Of Love.”
The historic performance was recorded and will be released as a two-CD set on March 31. Until then NPR Music will stream the entire album online, as an Exclusive First Listen, beginning at 11:59 p.m. March 23.
Leonard Cohen makes a great comment about a previous concert in London, “I was 60 years old, just a kid with a crazy dream”.
Listen to these two CD’s, they are absolutely great and I have the NPR Media Player spinning with them.
Update March 31, 2009.
The CD’s are released and NPR has closed this stream.

Some people get better looking as they get older, and Leonard is one of them. He can put his shoes under my bed any time!
Is any one familiar with The Enneagram? Leonard is the quintisential type four. Such a wonderful exemplar of that type. Are there any other fours reading this? I’m a four and so starved for that deep connection because the whole world is made up of bloody, fear based sixes.
Lots of them think they are fours but it all becomes clear in time.
