Jake Clemons covers Leonard Cohen

E Street Band sax player Jake Clemons has released his version of Leonard Cohen’s 1992 track ‘Democracy’.

‘Democracy’ is the first taste of Clemons upcoming solo album ‘Eyes of the Horizon’.

In a statement Jake said, “My father, a man whose greatest pride lay within his service to his country, instilled in me a firm belief that our flag, our nation should represent the certain unalienable rights of all people, that we are all created equal, that we are stronger as a whole, and that our rights as a collective whole deserve to be defended. Democracy, a mighty ship that would sail for the people and by the people, well, it’s slow. It is here, but it’s not. We are both waiting for it and simultaneously seem to be warring against it. When then, will the identity that promised to bind us together in precious liberty finally ring true; ‘FOR THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE’? When will we resolve to become truly UNITED as that powerful force claiming that grander posture of ‘WE, THE PEOPLE’? This was the promise made, one that I have to hold on to, be it desperately, one that my father would proudly sacrifice time & time again for. It is slow… but it’s coming. This is Democracy”.

Jake Clemons has spent the last seven years as the saxophone player for Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band. He joined the band following the death of his uncle Clarence Clemons.

Jake released his debut EP ‘Embracing Light’ in 2013. His debut album ‘Fear + Love’ was released in 2017.
