Leonard Cohen passed away in November 2016 aged 82, just after releasing his last record You Want It Darker.

Now his son, Adam Cohen, has confirmed that he's working on a posthumous album due to arrive next year.

Speaking to CBC q, Adam Cohen explained, "I was tasked with finishing a few more songs of his that we started together on the last album, so his voice is literally still in my life. It's a bizarre and delicious entanglement. To make a long story short, I believe that there are some really beautiful new songs of Leonard Cohen that no one's heard that are at some point going to come out."

Later, he says working on his father's unfinished work is, "a luxury and a treat. … How wonderful that these songs exist, that I'm going to bring them and see them to completion, not just for me because I'm part of the family business, but for all the people out there who are going to hopefully delight in hearing his language, that inimitable contribution of his. You know, there are these songs that exist that he wanted finished, these incredible powerful readings that were set to music. … It's going to surprise and delight."

Adam Cohen produced his father's You Want It Darker album.

On 2 October a new collection of Leonard Cohen poetry called The Flame is being released. Find out more.
