Lana Del Rey Duets With Leonard Cohen’s Son on ‘Chelsea Hotel No. 2’ (Watch)

Leonard Cohen passed away one year ago today at the age of 82, after a long and nearly peerless career as one of the most literate and literary songwriters in contemporary music.

A tribute concert was held at the Bell Centre in Cohen’s hometown of Montreal on Monday night, which featured Sting, Elvis Costello, Feist, k.d. lang, Damien Rice and others — as well as Lana Del Rey, who joined Cohen’s son Adam on “Chelsea Hotel No. 2.”

 

 

Del Rey covered the song, which was originally released on Cohen’s 1974 album “New Skin for the Old Ceremony,” back in 2013. After his death, she wrote a touching tribute to him in an Instagram post: “I’d be lying if I said it didn’t kind of break my heart that I never got to tell you how much you changed me,” she wrote. “Not that it would’ve mattered to ya, it’s just that other than Bob and Joan you were the only person I ever really felt spoke my language. I love you as a real fan and I always looked for a little bit of you in all of my future friends. God bless.”
