Moving On (2016) - Leonard Cohen (Leonard Cohen)

Leonard Cohen's posthumous release: Leonard Cohen - Moving On

Moving On - Leonard Cohen

In November, Colombia Records and Legacy Recordings released Thanks For The Dance , a posthumous release by Leonard Cohen, created mostly by his son Adam Cohen (with support from Beck, Feist and others). The album is assembled from vocal tracks that were recorded during sessions for his 2016 album You Want It Darker. The late artist's album was universally acclaimed, and critics deemed it great as a "last graceful note."

In celebration of the album, digital video channel NOWNESS collaborated with several filmmakers to create "Thank You for the Dance: Artistic Responses to Leonard Cohen," and to create collections of video responses to each track on the album. On Friday, they shared a video for the song "Moving On" by Laura Provost and Ciaran Wood. The video is considered a tribute to one of Cohen's favorite retreats, the Greek island of Idra.

"There is a nostalgic Mediterranean romance in the music and vocals," Adam Cohen said in a statement. "We wanted to conjure up the narrator's memories of Idra, to bring him back to the house where he wrote 'Bird on a Wire,' with the ghostly presence of Marianne in the next room."

The video is shot in first person and plays as a quick montage of several ephemeral images. There's a cat, then an orange floating in water, then a gray and white horse with a rider...
