In anticipation for the release of his new album You Want It Darker, which is set for release on October 21, Leonard Cohen spoke to The New Yorker. Within the feature, the famed artist detailed his new music, his life's work and the fact that his health is declining. And when speaking about unfinished work, he said:

"I don't think I'll be able to finish those songs. Maybe, who knows? And maybe I'll get a second wind, I don't know. But I don't dare attach myself to a spiritual strategy. I don't dare do that. I’ve got some work to do. Take care of business. I am ready to die. I hope it's not too uncomfortable. That's about it for me."
