First posthumous album by Leonard Cohen to be released in November

"Thanks for the Dance" will arrive on November 22, also known as Black Friday, via Sony Music Entertainment.

The posthumous album, which was announced last year, will feature nine songs that were left unfinished after the recording of Cohen's final project, "You Want it Darker."

Indeed, the Canadian artist passed away on November 11, 2016 -- a few months after releasing his 14th studio effort.

"Thanks for the Dance" was produced and masterminded by Adam Cohen, who previously collaborated with his father for "You Want it Darker."

"In composing and arranging the music for his words, we chose his most characteristic musical signatures, in this way keeping him with us. What moves me most about the album is the startled response of those who have heard it. 'Leonard lives!' they say, one after the other," he said in a statement.

For this posthumous album, Adam Cohen enlisted an impressive cast of guest collaborators such as Damien Rice, Leslie Feist, Bryce Dessner, Daniel Lanois, Jennifer Warnes, Beck and Arcade Fire's Richard Reed Parry.

"Thanks for the Dance" was previewed on September 20 with the acoustic single, "The Goal," which runs just a little more than a minute.

"I sit in my chair/I look at the street/The neighbor returns my smile of defeat/I move with the leaves," Cohen croons on the intimate song, which features piano and acoustic guitar.
