I've been a fan of Nicole Atkins for a while now, and a fan of Leonard Cohen since the seventies. If you haven't heard his new album "Old Ideas" yet, are you living under a rock? This is certainly a great album. Anyhow to celebrate Leonard Cohen’s legendary 40 years in music and his new album “Old Ideas”, a handful of today’s artists have recorded a cover of their favorite Leonard Cohen song, it's on Vimeo and it's called "Old Ideas With New Friends".
And one that caught my ear was this great Nicole Atkins take on "Bird on a Wire".
Nicole Atkins "Bird On A Wire" from Columbia Records on Vimeo.
Some more by Nicole, not Leonard related.
Nicole Atkins is joined by Nick, Helen and the eTones for this rendition of her song "Maybe Tonight."
Another great eTown performance.
