FT Arts
  • Leonard Cohen and Paul McCartney: is there life in the old dogs yet? Feb 07, 2012 - 4:00 pm
  • The arts podcast reviews new albums by two of the most venerable singer-songwriters around: Leonard Cohen's "Old Ideas" and Paul McCartney's "Kisses on the Bottom".

    Have they still got it? Does their latest work speak to modern times? And just what are we to make of Macca's album title?

    Neville Hawcock is joined in the studio by Ludovic Hunter-Tilney, FT pop critic, Peter Aspden, FT arts writer, and Gautam Malkani, FT writer and novelist.

    Produced by Griselda Murray Brown
