Listen Up: Leonard Cohen, Adam Arcuragi

"I'd love to speak with Leonard, he's a sportsman and a shepherd / He's a lazy bastard living in a suit." Those are the whispery first words to Old Ideas, the new album by the 77 year old Leonard Cohen, which comes out a week from Tuesday.

"I'd love to speak with Leonard, he's a sportsman and a shepherd / He's a lazy bastard living in a suit." Those are the whispery first words to Old Ideas, the new album by the 77 year old Leonard Cohen, which sounds pretty spiffy on first listen and comes out a week from Tuesday. It's streaming starting today at NPR Music, along with locally connected songwriter Adam Arcuragi's Like A Fire That Consumes All Before It..., which shares a named with a great Cy Twombly painting in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Listen to the Cohen here, the Arcuragi here and new albums by Gotye and Ana Tijoux here.
