Today, Leonard Cohen's posthumous album Thanks For the Dance was released, and alongside the album, a new mini-documentary on the making of the album has also been released.
The musician’s son, Adam Cohen, lead the creation of the nine-track album using vocal recordings Cohen made prior to his 2016 death as well as leftover material from 2016's You Want it Darker. Cohen also got assistance from several contributors, including Leslie Feist, Beck, Damien Rice, The National’s Bryce Dessner, Daniel Lanois, and Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry.
“When my father saw the success of You Want It Darker right before he passed, he asked me, ‘Complete the task. Finish the songs that we started,'” Leonard’s son Adam says in the mini-doc.
Watch the mini-doc below.
