Here's a recent live recording of Phosphorescent covering the hauntingly beautiful Leonard Cohen song "Hey‚ That's No Way to Say Goodbye."

I had a similarly feeling when I heard "Reasons to Quit" for the first time -- the first track off his 2009 record of Willie Nelson covers‚ To Willie. You can hear that he's lived these songs just like Willie and Leonard did.
