New Leonard Cohen out 1/31/12

Eagerly anticpate this one as this preview of a song on the album, "Darkness", has my musical senses buzzing:

I do love these lines from the song:

"I used to love the rainbow, and I used to love the view,
I loved the early morning, I'd pretend that it was new.
But I caught the darkness baby, and I got it worse than you."

Been spending time with Stephen Greenblatt's The Swerve these days- that catches his dissection of Lucretius's great poem, succinctly. It also so hints at a Larkin tone.
"....there's a merry song that starts in 'I' and ends in 'You', as many famous pop songs do....'
