Happy birthday to the brilliant Leonard Cohen, who turns 82 today, and uses the occasion to release the title track to his upcoming album You Want It Darker. You can't really name a song that and not live up to the title, and this song definitely does. His grizzled voice sounds even more brooding than usual, and it also looks like the creative hot streak he's been on this current decade is not ending any time soon. Listen to the full song, a snippet of which premiered on an episode of Peaky Blinders earlier this year, below:

The album is out October 21 via Sony.
