    In the long year that was 2016, the world suffered a great lost when Leonard Cohen passed away at the age of 82. While Cohen will always be remembered for penning "Hallelujah," one of the most covered songs of all time, he spent a long career writing endless classics that earned him the respect and admiration from fans and artists alike. In fact, Cohen was still releasing music in 2016, as his achingly beautiful final album You Want It Darker was released less than a month before his death. Now, artist Sammy Slabbinck, in collaboration with Cohen's son Adam, has released a brand new lyric video for the Darker track "Travelling Light," featuring previously unseen footage of the late singer-songwriter.

    "I feel a lot stronger, but I also feel a lot weaker," Cohen says with a laugh at the beginning of the video. He's talking about his health in context, but the sentiment fits the song incredibly well, as Cohen croons that he wants to keep moving and travelling, but knows it's almost time for him to give up and pack it in. It's a particularly dark track when you consider Cohen's death, but the video still serves as a strong and loving tribute to his long and rambling life. Check out the "Travelling Light" video right here, and while it's hard to say what posthumous work will be released, you can check out Cohen's legendary discography wherever you can find music. Whether you've heard his work once or thousands of times, you likely won't be disappointed.
