It is with profound sadness that Team HC reports the death of Canadian Singer/Songwriter Leonard Cohen.
An official statement from Sony Music Canada has confirmed his passing.
Sony Music said it was proud to have "celebrated Cohen's artistry" over his six-decade career.
"Leonard Cohen was an unparalleled artist whose stunning body of original work has been embraced by generations of fans and artists alike," it said in the statement.
"The Sony Music Canada family joins the world in mourning Leonard Cohen's passing."
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. His song Hallelujah has been recorded over 300 times.
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008.
"This is a very unlikely occasion for me. It is not a distinction that I coveted or even dared dream about," he said.
There were no details about the cause of Cohen's death. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date.
