A.C. Newman "Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye" (Leonard Cohen cover)
We've already heard a handful of the covers in the Leonard Cohen-toasting series Old Ideas with New Friends, including run-throughs from Cults, Greg Dulli and Nicole Atkins, but the latest instalment from New York-based, though Vancouver-born, A.C. Newman gives the Canadian icon a little mother-country lovin'.

The clip kicks off with a little anecdote from Newman, explaining how the Songs of Leonard Cohen number helped him get through a particularly bad break-up, but the New Pornographers songsmith and a few friends quickly offer up deliver a more folk-tinged interpretation than we'd expect from the power pop king.

Check out the cover in all of its acoustic glory down below.
