Legendary Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, rock music's man of letters whose songs fused religious imagery with themes of redemption and sexual desire, earning him critical and popular acclaim, has died at the age of 82, according to a Facebook post on his official page.

    The Sony Music Canada family joins the world in mourning Leonard Cohen’s passing.
    — @Sony_Music

"We have lost one of music's most revered and prolific visionaries," said a post on the Facebook page.

The Facebook page also said that there will be a memorial in Los Angeles at a later date, and that the family is requesting privacy now.

His music label Sony Music Canada has also confirmed the news.

"Leonard Cohen was an unparalleled artist whose stunning body of original work has been embraced by generations of fans and artists alike. We are proud and feel extremely privileged to have celebrated his artistry over a career spanning six decades. The Sony Music Canada family joins the world in mourning Leonard Cohen's passing."

So much of his work was a soundtrack to my life. I'm at a loss.

I was fortunate enough to see him in 2010.  He put on a four hour set, with one intermission.  Probably one of the best shows that I have seen.

Edit: I've seen the future, brother…
