First Aid Kit Announce Live Tribute To Leonard Cohen 'Who By Fire'

Monday, 01 March 2021 Written by Laura Johnson

First Aid Kit have announced a Leonard Cohen tribute album.

'Who By Fire' is a live LP that was recorded during their spring 2017 shows at The Royal Dramatic Theater in Stockholm, which the band organised with friends to celebrate Cohen's work and life.

The record will be released on March 26, but until then head below to check out its first cut, Suzanne, along with the album's tracklist and artwork. In a social media post, the Swedish folk duo said:

"When we decided to share this special project with you we listened back to it for the first time since the concerts and we realized that this was something out of the ordinary for us. It was a challenge to create a performance that wasn't centered around First Aid Kit songs. It was something we'd never done before. But everything came together so well. Dwelling deeply into Cohen's world was a pleasure. He was so prolific as both a poet and a songwriter. And everything he ever put out held a very strong standard. He cared immensely for his work.

"The band, the guest artists, the atmosphere on stage...everyone had a great passion and it felt magical. We’re so excited to finally be able to share the magic of the shows with you."

First Aid Kit released their last studio album, 'Ruins', in 2018.
