Read The Digital Edition of the January/February 2017 Issue, Featuring Leonard Cohen

low-res_cover_jan_feb The January/February issue of American Songwriter is now available for digital download. Our cover story features the late Leonard Cohen, a legendary songwriter who passed away at the age of 82 in November. In one of his final interviews, he discusses his last album You Want It Darker, his slow approach to songwriting, and working with his son, Adam. We also visit Randy Newman, who's still making some of the most irreverent, inventive music around. A conversation with Paul Simon shows that the acclaimed songwriter is still at the top of his game after all these years. And a look at several new books about the Beach Boys gives greater insight into the dynamics at play within the beloved band.
