Listen to the official audio for "You Want It Darker" by Leonard Cohen. There's a lover in the story But the story's still the same There's a lullaby for suffering And a paradox to blame But it's written in the scriptures And it's not some idle claim You want it darker We kill the flame. They're lining up the prisoners And the guards are taking aim I struggled with some demons They were middle-class and tame I didn't know I had permission To murder and to maim You want it darker. Hineni, hineni I'm ready, my Lord.
You Want It Darker is the fourteenth and final studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, released on October 21, 2016, by Columbia Records, nineteen days before Cohen's death. The album was created towards the end of his life and focuses on death, God, and humor. It was released to critical acclaim. The title track was awarded a Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance in January 2018.

Leonard Cohen can't slow down. The 82-year-old songwriting legend with the signature low, rumbling voice will release his 14th studio album in the fall on Sony Music, You Want it Darker. Produced by the 82-year-old singer's son, Adam Cohen, Sony said in a statement that, "as Leonard’s record company for over five decades, Sony Music is proud to be associated with this remarkable achievement. This great artist continues to astonish us. Uncompromising and urgent, YOU WANT IT DARKER is the latest chapter in Leonard’s significant contribution to contemporary music and thought.
Leonard Cohen's 14th studio album feels like a pristine, piously crafted last testament, the informed conclusion of a lifetime of inquiry. But even as he demurs, it’s hard not to play his 14th studio album, You Want It Darker, and hear a pristine, piously crafted last testament-a courtly act of finality that extends to the title. Notice it’s not a question; it’s a prescription. Cohen has always kicked up his heels in the ambiguities of love and prayers to the carnal, getting off on enlightenment.
But equally, you can see why Cohen is keen to deflect the interpretation that You Want It Darker is intended as some kind of musical last will and testament. It arrives packed with songs you could interpret as reflective farewells – from Leaving the Table to Steer Your Way – and with references to mortality and faith. The first sound you hear is a choir from the Montreal synagogue in which Cohen’s family worshipped, and the last is Cohen apparently addressing Jesus with a certain irrevocability: It’s over now, the water and the win. wish there was a treaty between your love and mine
