Michael Kiwanuka :: Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye (Leonard Cohen)

In a year pock-marked by artistic loss, the passing of Leonard Cohen in 2016 particularly stung. With a body of work spanning 14 albums over the course of five decades, Cohen's influence is boundless, his words and music embedding themselves in the DNA of not just music, but culture writ large. No stranger to tribute (his work has been covered Nina Simone, Johnny Cash, Judy Collins, et al.), the following rendering is a recent favorite -- British musician Michael Kiwanuka's take on "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye".
