Leonard Cohen celebrates his 80th birthday with the 2014 release of the album Popular Problems. The album, produced by Patrick Leonard, features nine new songs including “Almost Like the Blues”.

In his thrilling Popular Problems album, Leonard Cohen gets down into the avenues of our dreams and sets a new tone and speed of hope and despair, grief and joy. Cohen here is an astonished lover rocking to the human condition as “the soul unfolds in the chambers of its longing”. His legendary basso resonates as never before with a presence and urgency that arises from the very depths of the heart. The clarity and strength of these nine hypnotic songs will have us singing them over and over.

In collaboration with co-writer Patrick Leonard, Popular Problems is a masterpiece from the ever-fresh imagination of a musical legend whose songs continue to captivate new listeners and devoted fans. Popular Problems was produced by Patrick Leonard and was recorded and mixed by Jesse E. String, with Bill Bottrell providing additional mixing. The album was mastered at Marcussen Mastering by Stephen Marcussen.

“Yet again, Leonard Cohen has broken musical boundaries with new creative inspiration,” Rob Stringer, Chairman/CEO of Columbia Records said in a statement. “These nine new songs are simply sublime and innovative with a unique spirit. We’re absolutely thrilled and honored to celebrate this milestone with him.”
