Released in 1974, New Skin for the Old Ceremony is the fourth studio album by Leonard Cohen. On this album he began to move away from the minimal instrumentation of his earlier work, with the use of violas, mandolins, banjos, guitars, percussion and other instruments producing a more orchestrated (but nevertheless spare) sound. The album has been certified silver in the UK, but never entered the Billboard Top 200.

Album including Album cover. I& sorry! Dear HIGHRESAUDIO Visitor, due to territorial constraints and also different releases dates in each country you currently can& purchase this album. We are updating our release dates twice a week. Though it is the least acclaimed of Leonard Cohen's early albums, „New Skin For The Old Ceremony is one of his best, easily the equal of its three predecessors. It is much more ambitious than Cohen's previous efforts in terms of songwriting, but the production is nevertheless understated and tasteful. The urgent delivery and rhythmic drive of 'Lover Lover Lover' and 'There is a War' makes it seem like the young David Byrne spent as much time absorbing Cohen as he did Jonathan Richman.

The album is silver in the UK, but never dented the Billboard Top 200. In 2009, it was included in Hallelujah-The Essential Leonard Cohen Album Collection, an 8-CD box set issued by Sony Music in the Netherlands. This book contains the texts and scores of the poems recorded on New Skin for the Old Ceremony, an album I first heard in New York City while visiting the apartment of friend from Grinnell College, Sue McGovern. I was impressed, but didn't see the album again until finding it at Mike Miley's apartment in San Francisco years later. Finally, I broke down and bought the thing.

Notes

The original artwork of this edition of this LP features an image from the alchemical text Rosarium Philosophorum. The artwork caused a lot of controversy with the US cover being replaced within a few months by a second US cover; a black & white photo of Cohen. In the UK, an alternate version of the artwork (with a wing added to hide the naughty parts) was featured on the initial release.

This release has no bar code.
