The legendary artist's death was announced on his Facebook page last night:

His son Adam has said, "My father passed away peacefully at his home in Los Angeles with the knowledge that he had completed what he felt was one of his greatest records. He was writing up until his last moments with his unique brand of humour."

Cohen's Hallelujah is one of the most covered songs in history...
