Published Jan 16, 2012Leonard Cohen has been generating plenty of buzz lately, as the iconic folk singer is gearing up to release Old Ideas on January 31 via Columbia, marking his first official full-length since 2004. Clearly, indie pop act Cults have not been immune to Cohen Fever, as they recently covered his "Everybody Knows" in concert.
The video below isn't the highest quality, but it gets the point across, as the band give the song an eerie run through. Perhaps the most interesting thing about this brooding cover is hearing Madeline Follin sing Cohen's parts, since her high, plaintive vocals could hardly sound more different than his husky baritone.
Thanks to Cover Me for this one.
