You’d think at this stage, people would stop writing songs called ‘Hallelujah’. Everyone just expects it to be a Leonard Cohen cover that won’t be as good as Jeff Buckley’s. Yet loads of artists still go on using that title. The latest of which is Ryan Bingham, who won the Best Song Oscar this year (Glen Hansard won the year before last remember?) for ‘The Weary Kind’ from Crazy Heart. His new album is being produced by T-Bone Burnett, who co-wrote and performed that Oscar winning song with him. There’s no release date for it yet, but we might expect it later this year.
