New details about the untimely death of Canadian singer Leonard Cohen have begun to emerge.

In a statement released by Cohen’s manager, Robert B. Kory, he reveals the singer passed away in his sleep after falling down in his home in the middle of the night. The statement also revealed Cohen died on November 7, 2016, three days before his death was made public.
