Watch New Leonard Cohen Video For Previously Released 'Puppets'

In commemoration of the five year anniversary of his death, a new video for Leonard Cohen's song 'Puppets' has been released. The track originally featured on 2019's posthumous collection Thanks For The Dance, which was predominantly produced by Cohen's son Adam.
 'Puppets' was directed by Daniel Askill, stars Bobbi Salvör Menuez and was shot on location in New York.
 On the video, the director shared the following:
 "It has been such a gift to have the opportunity to create these visual responses to the music of Leonard Cohen. Cohen has an incredible ability to create a bridge between the sublime and the prosaic—the metaphysical and political. In “Puppets,” he does that while addressing dark themes with a poetic insight. This video for “Puppets” has been born out of a wonderful ongoing dialogue with Adam Cohen. It is in some ways a darker counter point to the first film we made for “Happens to the Heart.” Shot on location in New York, this film follows the symbolic journey of a single figure through darkness towards a transcendence. In many ways, it is visually pointing to the idea that Leonard often beautifully evokes in different ways—that the darkness and the light of our experience is deeply entangled—and maybe at a fundamental level they are in fact one and the same."
