Singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey paid tribute to music legend Leonard Cohen after the announcement of his death last Monday by posting her 2013 cover of “Chelsea Hotel No. 2.”
Del Rey’s post was accompanied by a brief message to the artist sharing how deeply Cohen had influenced her as an artist.
I’d be lying if I said it didn’t kind of break my heart that I never got to tell you how much you changed me. Not that it would’ve mattered to ya, it’s just that other than Bob and Joan you were the only person I ever really felt spoke my language. I love you as a real fan and I always looked for a little bit of you in all of my future friends. God bless.
