Leonard Cohen


Ahead of Jarvis' interview with Leonard Cohen this weekend, we have asked you to help us pick the Ultimate Leonard Cohen Playlisy.

We've had some amazing suggestions - both insightful and thoughtful - and it created an incredible hour of music.

Leading up to that we had the latest digital music news from Soundcloud, Napster, the latest from Wayne Coyne and tracks picked for us by Abeano.

Leonard Cohen – Suzanne

* Wayne Coyne has been Tweeting teasers of the Flaming Lips’ new collaboration album which will come out as part of Record Store Day on April 21.
* Music streaming service Soundcloud passed the 10 million user mark this week – a staggering 50 per cent increase in just six months.
* Gotye’s third album, Making Mirrors, is currently streaming in full at NPR ahead of its re-release next week.
* Napster is back again, positioning itself as a rival to Spotify in the European market.
* Lana Del Rey gave her first ever live UK radio performance to BBC 6 Music on Huey Morgan’s show earlier this week – and you can listen to it here.
