Singer-songwriter and painter Joseph Arthur sent out a previously unreleased cover version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” in an e-mail to to his subscribed fans. It’s a pretty take, especially well-timed for the holidays. Sorry, no posting the song for download, but you can listen to it below. Also, be on the lookout for a new video for “Over the Sun”, the ninth in an ongoing series from 2011’s “The Graduation Ceremony”. The video was completed on a custom made iphone rig, and you can see a making of the video here on YouTube. Note: Photo comes from artist’s facebook page, and was taken this year by Myriam Santos. — David D. Robbins Jr.
