The New Yorker spoke to Leonard Cohen one month before he died in 2016. They took his words and made this incredible animation with them.

Cohen talks about how he’s preparing for death and how his views on life and mortality have changed over the years. Like a lot of rock musicians, Cohen was always conscious of ideas around his legacy. He was his own worst critic, constantly telling himself how he was messing things up.
