NOVEMBER 11, 2016 – Roadrunner/604 recording group Theory Of A Deadman have released a touching cover of the late Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” The track, which originally appeared on Cohen’s 1984 album, “Various Positions,” was re-recorded by fellow Canadians Theory Of Deadman prior to Cohen’s passing to honor the profound impact and influence of his art. The band previewed their rendition of Cohen’s classic early Thursday morning, preceding the news of his untimely passing.
Tyler Connolly, frontman for Theory Of A Deadman paid tribute to Cohen remarking, “We are deeply saddened by the loss of the incomparable singer-songwriter and poet Leonard Cohen. This is a song that has always been close to our hearts. Leonard was such an amazing talent and we’ll be thinking of him every time we play this song, hope you do too.”
‘Hallelujah’ made it onto Spotify‘s New Music Friday playlist. We had planned to release this song today for a while now and were stunned to hear of Leonard Cohen‘s death last evening. Be sure to check out the original too if you’ve never heard it. #RIPLeonardCohen
