Leonard Cohen is reportedly releasing a new album to coincide with his 80th birthday.
Although the album has not yet been officially confirmed, news of its release broke last week at Leonard Cohen Event 2014, an officially sanctioned fan convention held in Dublin.
“Leonard has worked hard on his next studio album of entirely new songs,” claimed Jarkko Arjatsalo, who runs Cohen’s official website and serves as a liaison between the singer and his fan community. “He asked me to let you know that Popular Problems will be out at the end of September, shortly after his 80th birthday.”
