It’s been almost eight years since we’ve heard from ol’ Len, but everyone’s favourite lachrymose troubadour hasn’t missed a step: the first taster from his new album sees him, with that molasses-thick voice, still puzzling over sex, death and the human condition. ‘Old Ideas’ perhaps, but presented exquisitely.
