Watch Lana Del Rey cover ‘Chelsea Hotel #2’ with Leonard Cohen’s son

Adam Cohen joined the singer on the first date of her Norman Fucking Rockwell tour – which would have also been his father’s 85th birthday

Lana Del Rey started her Norman Fucking Rockwell tour on Saturday (September 21) at the Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater in New York. During her set, she performed a cover of the late Leonard Cohen’s “Chelsea Hotel #2”.

Cohen’s song originally appeared on his 1974 album New Skin for the Old Ceremony. During her performance of the track, she was joined by Adam Cohen, the musician’s son. 

The date of the show coincided with what would have been Leonard Cohen’s 85th birthday. It’s not the first time they’ve played the song together – Del Rey previously performed at a tribute concert with Adam Cohen, Courtney Love, Sting, Elvis Costello, and Feist.

Elsewhere in the set, she was joined by Sean Lennon, John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s son, for their duet Tomorrow Never Came. She also sung the song “Bartender” live for the first time.
