Click to listen to The Horrible Crowes' album 'Elsie'

Brian Fallon, the frontman for New Jersey rockers the Gaslight Anthem, teamed up with his old friend Ian Perkins to form the Horrible Crowes, an outlet for the singer's more introspective material. Though the songs on Elsie, the band's debut, are slower and more somber than most Gaslight Anthem tunes, Fallon's gift for grand, cinematic music is still in evidence. Elsie will hit stores on September 6th, but you can stream the album in full today.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
