Naima Bock – “So Long, Marianne” (Leonard Cohen Cover)

Last year, the UK musician and former Goat Girl member Naima Bock released her solo debut Giant Palm. It’s a folk album, more or less, but there’s nothing traditional about it. Instead, Bock — who also released the standalone single “Lines” a few months ago — uses the language of folk music to make something eccentric and personal. Once upon a time, the late Leonard Cohen did the same thing with folk music, though his take on the genre was nothing like Bock’s. For a while, Naima Bock and her band have been covering Cohen’s all-time classic “So Long, Marianne” at their live shows. Now, they’ve released the studio version.
