Bill Callahan – ‘So Long, Marianne’ (Leonard Cohen cover)

A warmly heroic celebration

On this cover, Billy C turns the lo-fi clang and muted timbre of the original into a warmly heroic celebration. Replete with pedal steel and a rare, bold optimism in Bill’s low tones, it’s a fitting tribute from one great artist to another.
