Yesterday (June 17) saw Vernon and Dessner come together to play a set as Big Red Machine – the same name used for their Dark Was the Night collaboration in 2009.
The pair performed some new material, which you can see below thanks to a few fan-filmed clips.
Cohen, who passed away last year aged 82, will be honoured by le Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal with the new exhibit Leonard Cohen – Une brèche en toute chose / A Crack in Everything, which will open on November 9 and run until April 9 2018.
As well as featuring pieces of Cohen’s writing, self-portraits and recordings, the opening of the exhibition will also be marked by the release of a cover of a Cohen song from The National and Stevens. The rendition will also feature as-yet-unannounced special guests.
Curated by the museum’s director John Zeppetelli and Victor Shiffman, A Crack In Everything will also feature visual art, VR exhibits and a series of concerts and events – which will see the likes of Moby, Julia Holter and Chilly Gonzales perform – to honour Cohen’s life and career.
