WATCH: Cold War Kids Cover Leonard Cohen’s “There Is A War”

26 Jan


In less than one week, Leonard Cohen‘s first album in eight years, titled Old Ideas, is set to be released via Columbia Records. In honour of the music icon, Columbia has gathered together a number of musicians, who are also fans of Mr. Cohen, and brought them into the studio to record a covers series called Old Ideas With New Friends. Courtesy of Filter, we have video footage of Cold War Kid‘s cover of Cohen’s “There Is A War,” a song which they call “striking.” Check out the footage from within the recording studio above.

Old Ideas is out on January 31st via Columbia Records.
