In advance of his new Old Ideas, out January 31, Leonard Cohen sat down with Jarvis Cocker to chat about the album for a BBC radio interview. The erstwhile Pulp frontman talked about the conversation in a five-minute promo snatch online now. The full interview will air on the January 29 edition of Cocker's Sunday Service radio show.

Highlights: Cohen claiming he was always "scraping the bottom of the barrel" to get a song together (he says the words "buffet table" amazingly); the lovely sound of Cohen's deep, sonorous speaking voice; and Cocker not knowing what time his own show is on!

For a taste of the album to come, give a listen to first single Show Me the Place.
