Leonard Cohen - Hallelujah & Songs From His Albums 2LP
First-Ever Career-Spanning Collection includes Previously Unreleased Live Performance of "Hallelujah" at the 2008 Glastonbury Festival!
Hallelujah & Songs from His Albums is the first-ever career-spanning album from songwriter, musician, and poet, Leonard Cohen. Comprised of 17 tracks from Cohen's expansive career, the anthology features an unreleased and unforgettable live performance of "Hallelujah" from the 2008 Glastonbury Festival. The collection is a companion piece to the new documentary Hallelujah: Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song. The film is a definitive exploration of the singer-songwriter as seen through the prism of Cohen's internationally renowned hymn "Hallelujah." Approved for production by Leonard Cohen just before his 80th birthday in 2014, the film accesses a wealth of never-before-seen archival materials from the Cohen Family Trust, including Cohen's personal notebooks, journals and photographs, performance footage, and extremely rare audio recordings and interviews. The documentary contains moving testimonies from personal friends of Leonard's such as Adrienne Clarkson and Larry "Ratso" Sloman, and recording artists for whom "Hallelujah" has become a personal touchstone like Judy Collins, Brandi Carlile, and Rufus Wainwright.
