‘We Go Home’, Cohen’s fifth album (out 15 September), is a homemade affair. Since his band was playing in Europe, Adam decided to set up shop in the little white house on the Greek island of Hydra where he had spent much of his childhood. They continued recording in Montreal, where Adam was born, in the house where he spent his earliest years.
“I knew I was painting a target on my back, making my album in the so-called homes of Leonard Cohen, but they’re my homes too. These are the walls that saw me grow up the most and that I needed to come back to. My muse is my home”.
He has released four albums – his eponymously titled debut in 1998 followed by a French language album ‘Melancolista’ in 2004, then as lead singer/guitarist of the band Low Millions he released the album ‘Ex-Girlfriends’ in 2004. His feted 2011 album ‘Like A Man’ earned him his first gold record in Canada and saw him tour the globe.

WHAT THE PAPERS SAID ABOUT ADAM COHEN’S 2011 ALBUM ‘LIKE A MAN’
“Adam Cohen is finally ready to follow in his dad’s footsteps…his new record is one truly fit to bear the family name… ‘Like A Man’ and ‘What Other Guy’ apply a probing diamond-sharp tip to the soft flesh of real relationships… ” SUNDAY TIMES
“’Like A Man’ is a little beauty, a perfectly turned collection of measured, poetic, introspective, funny, philosophical and deeply romantic songs exploring what it means to be a man in love, simply arranged around a picked nylon-string guitar and sung in a tender, melancholic voice.” DAILY TELEGRAPH
“The understated acoustic-based album has that confessional vibe of Len’s early classics…and dad has even described ‘What Other Guy’ and the title track as world-class love songs. Who am I to disagree?” THE SUN
“…with his fourth album (Adam Cohen) has gone up a division…the genre is confessional folk…candid, sensuous and precise…strong clear songs about modern love. 4 stars” MAIL ON SUNDAY
“Cohen sets about quiet rapprochement with his DNA, hence ‘Like A Man’ packs elegant poem-songs, nylon-string guitar and …serene half-spoken rumination… Cohen Junior’s best work to date.” MOJO
