Premieres From Lower Dens, Lambchop, Leonard Cohen And More

Jan 17, 2012

To celebrate the return of producer and co-host Robin Hilton, this week's All Songs Considered is the first proper episode of all-new music this year. On this episode, three guys who have never had trouble cranking out songs — Leonard Cohen, The Magnetic Fields' Stephin Merritt, and Lambchop's Kurt Wagner — unveil cuts from their new albums. Also: a sneak preview from Lower Dens, an under-the-radar quartet from Baltimore also readying a new release.
