“Being a lady today means being a fighter. It means being a survivor. It means letting yourself be vulnerable and acknowledging your shame or that you’re sad or you’re angry. It takes great strength to do that.”

!! OMG, RIP: Icon and legendary singer Leonard Cohen !!

cw8fzdew8aa3-4n

Leonard Cohen, hugely prolific singer and songwriter whose work spanned close to 50 years, has passed away at the age of 82. Cohen’s label, Sony Music Canada, confirmed his death on the singer’s Facebook page, and his family, son and manager released statements regarding the icon’s death saying:

“It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away,” the statement read.

“We have lost one of music’s most revered and prolific visionaries. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. The family requests privacy during their time of grief. My father passed away peacefully at his home in Los Angeles with the knowledge that he had completed what he felt was one of his greatest records,” Cohen’s son Adam wrote in a statement to Rolling Stone. “He was writing up until his last moments with his unique brand of humour.”

“Unmatched in his creativity, insight and crippling candor, Leonard Cohen was a true visionary whose voice will be sorely missed,” his manager Robert Kory wrote in a statement. “I was blessed to call him a friend, and for me to serve that bold artistic spirit firsthand, was a privilege and great gift. He leaves behind a legacy of work that will bring insight, inspiration and healing for generations to come.”

A cause of death has not yet been released, but he was 82!

RIP, Leonard! Seeing you perform was one of the most-memorable and beautiful evenings we can recall!

!! OMG, LISTEN TO THIS: Listen to the score from Tom Ford’s NOCTURNAL ANIMALS for free !!

nocturnal-animals-1

If you’re like us, you’re probably feeling like hermits or nocturnal animals yourselves today, wanting to crawl into a dark hole and stay there for, oh say, around 4 years! Well whether you decide to embrace the day in protest or not today – Tom Ford‘s new film NOCTURNAL ANIMALS starring Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal just dropped his beautiful new score for the thriller and you can Spotify the shit out of it below!

In an interview with Where To Watch, the composer Abel Korzeniowski spoke about his approach to fashioning the score. “‘Nocturnal Animals’ is a slightly larger score in terms of orchestration,” he explained. “We recorded in London with their session players, and the orchestral forces were stronger, but there’s some electronic elements.”

“But, it’s not a long score because this movie didn’t really call for wall-to-wall music,” he added. “It’s only in crucial places, but when it comes in you can really hear it and you’re aware of it. It’s a really carefully balanced and chosen amount, contrasting with the gritty, raw character in the second part of the film, which is almost without music.”

Korzeniowski’s previous credits include Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful,” the 2013 film “Romeo & Juliet” starring Hailee Steinfeld, and the thriller “Ziarno prawdy.” His music has also been used for a slew of fashion shows including Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Carolina Herrera and Tom Ford.

Nocturnal Animals will be released in select cities on November 18 and arrive in theaters nationwide on December 9.

TRUST ME! Listen to thasss! It’s new Robyn, which should be enough to get your gay finger to press play. DUH! It’s the first single of the upcoming EP by them both! Out January 13th via Smalltown Supersound.

The Trust Me EP is billed as “Mr. Tophat featuring Robyn”. The club-ready set comprises three songs that each eclipse the nine-minute mark. A press release describes it as “the artistic culmination of two artists joining together in the studio and putting pure inspiration to tape, resulting in some of the loosest and most intriguing music either has made in their careers.” And the Swedish disco vibes are given a boost by contributions from ABBA session drummer Per Lindvall.

Here’s the tracklist:
1. Trust Me (Original)
2. Right Time (Original)
3. Disco Davato (Original)
