Only a few weeks before the news broke about his death, Leonard Cohen was the subject of a piece in The New Yorker, which detailed the ailments that had kept him off the road the past couple of years; compressed fractures of the back that did not deter him from making music. And so it was that he managed to write songs and complete a new album, his 14th, entitled You Want it Darker and released just days before he passed away in Los Angeles.

With the surviving Dead having celebrated the 50th anniversary with a farewell tour—and then a return of most of them, as Dead & Company—they continue to be in the news.
