Leonard Cohen arrives at the Jovellanos Theatre for the "A Tribute to Leonard Cohen" concert in Gijon, Spain.

Leonard Cohen's new LP Old Ideas isn't hitting stores until January 31st, but the first single "Show Me The Place" is now streaming online. (Listen below.) Old Ideas is Cohen's first album since 2004's Dear Heather. He began recording it this past January, though he previewed the tracks "Lullaby" and "The Darkness" during his epic, 250-date world tour between 2008 and 2010. The disc was produced by Patrick Leonard, Anjani Thomas, Ed Sanders and Dino Soldo. Cohen has said that he's interested in launching another tour to support the disc, though so far no dates have been announced.

Check out the stream of "Show Me The Place," along with live clips of "The Darkness" and "Lullaby" below.

“Party Rock Anthem”

LMFAO | 2011

This electro-pop uncle-nephew duo burst onto the scene with 2009’s "Shots," a song about getting totally obliterated. Two years afterward, they were still shamelessly getting wild but now insisting that everyone else join them in the fun. "I wanted a song for when we walked into a party, so I thought, 'Party rock in the house tonight/Everybody just have a good time,'" Redfoo (a.k.a. Stefan Gordy, son of Motown founder Berry Gordy) told Rolling Stone about the lyrics to "Party Rock Anthem." "The 'just' was key. I made it a command to focus people on what to do now that we’re here together."
