Cohen unveiled "Old Ideas," his 12th studio effort, in January 2012 via Columbia Records. The album, which landed on NPR's Favorite Albums of 2012 list, peaked at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and at the top of several European album charts.

In 2010, Cohen was awarded a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in celebration of his five-decade career.
