Hallelujah Leonard Cohen!

In celebration of Leonard Cohen playing the O2 last night, I thought it fitting to post a slightly different take on his song "Hallelujah".






The language is Welsh and this cover has received the thumbs up from Leonard Cohen for official release. It's the first time one of his songs has been released in any other language apart from English.

Unless I've missed something, I'm not expecting many of you are familiar with Welsh and "Hallelujah" is probably the only word that you'll recognise but I felt it was worth sharing because the vocals are so impressive.

This song makes me think of my dad.

Meanwhile I went to see Emmy The Great play last night who also slipped a song loosely based on "Hallelujah", I'll be posting my review with photos shortly.
