Watch: A.C. Newman - "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye" (Leonard Cohen cover)

AC Newman

Yet another video from the Old Ideas With New Friends Leonard Cohen tribute series has surfaced. This time it comes from The New Pornographers frontman A.C. Newman.

For his contribution, Newman chose to cover “Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye”. The song comes from Leonard Cohen’s 1967 debut album, Song of Leonard Cohen. Newman does Cohen’s classic justice with an emotionally powerful new take.

The Old Ideas With New Friends series is all in support of Cohen’s celebrated twelfth full-length, Old Ideas, which came out last month via Columbia. Watch Newman and a backing band cover the song (via The Huffington Post) and listen to Leonard Cohen’s original version below.
