Canadian singer Leonard Cohen has died aged 82, according to a statement on his official Facebook page.
“It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away,” the announcement said.
“We have lost one of music’s most revered and prolific visionaries.”
There were no details about the cause of Cohen’s death. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date, the announcement said.
The Montreal-born singer’s hits included Suzanne and I’m Your Man and he released his 14th album, You Want It Darker, just last month.
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008.
