Eric Church Delivers Another Powerful Cover Of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”

CLASSIC.

Is there a more timeless, more captivating song than “Hallelujah?”

To be honest, I’ve heard the song a zillon times, a zillion different versions, and I still don’t even really know totally what it’s all about. Maybe that’s the beauty in it, right?

I mean, the religious imagery, Biblical references like David’s infidelity and the story of Sampson and Delilah… there’s a tangible power there. A bit of sexual energy and then loss and despair, you can just feel it, you know?

Written by Canadian singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen, it was originally released on his 1984 Various Positions album. Cohen initially wrote 80 verses for the song in a New York hotel room, as numerous renditions have been performed and recorded over the years.

It’s become a pretty regular staple in Eric’s set over the past few years, and the other night in Grand Forks, North Dakota, Eric treated fans to a solo performance once more.

And once again, I dig the HELL out of it.

Eric also performed “Hallelujah” during his epic Red Rocks set a couple years back.
