Video: Leonard Cohen Sings The Future On Later With Jools Holland – 1993

In support of The Future album (released November 24, 1992), Leonard Cohen appeared on a number of TV shows (see links to videos of the other programs at end of post) but his performance of “The Future” on the BBC”s Later With Jools Holland (taped on May 12, 1993 and first broadcast May 14, 1993) is distinctive and perhaps the best of the lot, benefiting from the participation of his tour musicians, especially backup singers Julie Christensen and Perla Batalla with Bob Metzger on guitar.
