A posthumous video for Leonard Cohen’s You Want It Darker track “Leaving the Table” was just released.

Below, watch an animated Cohen soar through the clouds and fly through the city in this new and hauntingly beautiful tribute to the late singer.

According to Billboard, making this an animated video was Prism Prize’s idea, inspired by the “lightness” director Christopher Mills thought Cohen would likely be feeling now.

As we approach the one-year anniversary of Cohen’s death, his son Adam announced a tribute concert in honor of his late father. The show promises a lineup of A-list acts, including Elvis Costello, Sting, The Lumineers, Damien Rice, and more. In a statement, Adam described some of his father’s wishes before he passed, explaining that holding a public event was fine under one condition: that it would be held in Montreal.

Tower of Song: A Memorial Tribute to Leonard Cohen will take place at Montreal's Bell Center on November 6.
