Video: Leonard Cohen Performs “Lover, Lover, Lover” On Italian TV – 1975

Leonard Cohen Promotes New Skin for the Old Ceremony On Italian TV

While no information about the date or venue is provided with this video, it appears to be the performance of “Lover Lover Lover” broadcast on Italian TV Rai Uno in 1975. The song was released as a track on the New Skin for the Old Ceremony album in August 1974.

The opening of the song is notable for the significant lag between the time the music is first heard and the point at which Leonard begins performing.
