Afghan Whigs and Twilight Singers frontman Greg Dulli recorded this version of Leonard Cohen's "Paper Thin Hotel" as part of Old Ideas with New Friends, a new series of Cohen covers by artists such as Deerhunter's Bradford Cox, Old 97s' Rhett Miller, Cold War Kids and the New Pornographers' A.C. Newman. "I wanted to do a version of this song because I think they might be my favorite set of Leonard Cohen lyrics," says Dulli. "I think they kind of explain and validate love all at the same time."
