THE FUTURE (MUSIC ON VINYL)
Popquiz: What do Leonard Cohen's The Future (1992) and nouveau-violence movie Natural Born Killers (Oliver Stone, 1994) have in common? Answer: the latter used no less than three tracks from Cohen's The Future in its soundtrack.
Whereas the movie is pretty cynical and sinister, The Future is a record of perseverance, reformation and hope in the face of grim prospects.
Its lyrics are pretty dark though, with references to actual events regarding social unrest in the U.S at the time.
Following release of The Future, Cohen toured the Western world and found new success with younger audiences.
