Wild Beasts see out the year with Leonard Cohen cover

Check out their version of 'Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye'.
Wild Beasts have shared a cover of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye’ – check it out below.

“2016 was a cruel year for goodbyes,” explains frontman Hayden. “We were in Canada the day Cohen died, though our version of ‘Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye’ was recorded a few years earlier during writing sessions for ‘Present Tense’. The arrival of a Yamaha D50 synthesiser into the studio prompted some time down a worm hole from which we emerged with this. It seemed fitting to pull it from the archives, blow off the dust and let some light in.”

The band’s most recent album, ‘Boy King’ was released earlier this year. They’ve also recently confirmed for Live at Leeds, alongside Dork faves The Big Moon, The Magic Gang, Black Honey and loads more.
