Singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Michael Hanson has debuted the music video to his rendition of the Leonard Cohen classic “Hallelujah”.
Released on December 14, Hanson, formerly of iconic 80s band Glass Tiger, is shown performing in a dusty, dilapidated cottage, as he pours his heart into the words originally inked by Cohen. The mix Hanson’s guitar and voice transform shape the song into a track that no longer feels like the original, but something entirely it’s own.
Michael Hanson is also the founder of Radar Love Records. Based in Mississauga, Radar Love’s goal is to help promote and launch the careers of budding Canadian artist, giving them the proper platform to launch themselves into the industry.
This striking rendition of “Hallelujah” is the perfect way for anyone to feel the spirit of the holiday season, with the crackling of the fire and the emotional resonance sure to warm even the coldest of hearts.
