The liturgy of timeless songs to be found on Cohen’s first three albums has mystified poets and professors for ages. And so the stage is set to commemorate the 40th anniversary of Cohen’s debut album. For the first time in the digital era, expanded editions of Songs Of Leonard Cohen, Songs From A Room, and Songs Of Love And Hate will arrive in stores April 24th on Columbia/Legacy.
In conjunction with these, Anjani’s Blue Alert will be issued in a special two-disc digipak. The CD features ten tracks while the bonus DVD will contain two music video clips (“The Mist” and “Thanks For the Dance”) and behind-the-scenes interviews and recording studio footage. Of the many protégés and disciples who have spread their wings and found a kindred spirit in Leonard Cohen, none is more intriguing than singer-songwriter Anjani Thomas. Now signed to Columbia alongside Cohen, Anjani is set to release Blue Alert. The album’s ten songs were written by Cohen and Anjani, she arranged the music and accompanied herself on piano, and the album was produced by Cohen.
