Iggy Pop has shared a cover of the Leonard Cohen song “You Want It Darker.”

The Godfather of Punk’s rendition of the 2016 track stretches out to over five minutes, and features his slow-burning, gravelly vocals over jazz instrumentation.

“There’s nobody like Leonard, not in the whole world,” Pop says.

Pop’s cover is available now via digital outlets, and will appear on the upcoming Cohen tribute album Here It Is, due out October 14. The compilation also includes contributions from Peter Gabriel, Nathaniel Rateliff, Norah Jones, James Taylor and Mavis Staples.
