The video is a latest in an artistic series celebrating the Canadian singer-songwriter’s posthumous release…
Today marks the release of the video for the title track of Leonard Cohen’s critically acclaimed posthumous release Thanks For The Dance. London-based fashion photographer Harley Weir has taken the reigns, sharing her artistic vision of the track.
“I’m a huge fan of Leonard Cohen,” Weir said in a press release. “His lyrics are so raw and yet so warm. I am honoured to be a part of his legacy.” With her eye for the emotive, Weir’s images speak to the universal appeal of Cohen’s timeless and inspirational music.
Released last year, Thanks For The Dance was nominated for a 2020 JUNO Award for ‘Adult Alternative Album of the Year’. Collaborating with producer Adam Cohen, friends and colleagues gathered to support and complete the work Leonard had begun, making an album that echoes the sounds of his catalogue whilst still remaining current and impactful.
The video for Thanks For The Dance is the latest in the Thanks For The Dance: Artistic Responses to Leonard Cohen series. Created by NOWNESS, the series offers a video representation of Cohen’s posthumous album.
