In the Polaris Music Prize's latest cover session, Canadian country musician Lindi Ortega takes on a Leonard Cohen classic.
Ortega's version of "Suzanne" stays pretty faithful to the original but is still heartfelt, personal and wonderfully delivered. "Leonard Cohen is one of my favourite lyricists and poets of all time," she reveals. "And I really love this song, I think it's got beautiful imagery."
Watch Ortega's cover below.
