Stranger Music by Leonard Cohen
Book DescriptionWhen his fist album was released in 1967, Leonard Cohen was already well known in his native Canada as a poet and novelist, and in the United States as the writer behind Judy Collins' hugely popular recording of 'Suzanne'. With the sucess of the first and through the release of ten more albums, Cohen gained a reputation as a highly literate and daring songwriter. Over the years his status as a cult artist has grown, and in 1988 the release of his album 'I'm Your Man' put Cohen back into the mainstream spotlight. Later, 'The Future' brought him renewed, widespread acclaim and this collection will include lyrics from that album, together with many of his famous classics, such as 'Suzanne', 'Joan of Arc' and 'The Chelsea Hotel'. Stranger Music brings together Cohen's song lyrics and a generous selection of his poetry (originally published between 1956-1992). It is a long overdue celebration of Leonard Cohen's extraordinary gift for language that speaks with rare clarity, passion and timelessness.

When his first album made him an unlikely star in the late 1960s, Leonard Cohen was hailed as the new poet of song. His melodies were hauntingly melodic but his lyrics were like no one else's - poignant, romantic, mystical and darkly comic. This book contains the lyrics to over 100 classic songs.
