Leonard Cohen To Release Popular Problems

The ever-restless Leonard Cohen is releasing a new album this September, according to news announced at last week’s Leonard Cohen Event 2014 in Dublin. The album, titled Popular Problems, will supposedly be released on September 22 (according to a release date on Amazon France), one day after the legendary songwriter turns 80.

Cohen’s team hasn’t officially announced the album, but Jarkko Arjatsalo, who heads up Cohen’s official web site, told Rolling Stone that he received word of Popular Problems “directly from Leonard.” Arjatsalo shared news of the release via the Dublin event’s program, stating, “He asked me to let you know that Popular Problems will be out at the end of September, shortly after his 80th birthday.”

Popular Problems is the follow-up to 2012′s critically acclaimed Old Ideas, which earned Cohen the number one spot on the Billboard album chart in eleven countries, peaking at number three in the U.S.
