Famous Canadian singer and songwriter Leonard Cohen has died at the age of 82. The singer’s official Facebook page confirmed his death.
“It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away,” the statement read.
“We have lost one of music's most revered and prolific visionaries.” There were no details about the cause of his death.
The memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. Some of his hits include Suzanne and I'm Your Man and he released his 14th album, You Want It Darker, just last month.
Cohen was called the ‘godfather of gloom’ as his lyrics often reflected depression.
