Dear Heather is a Leonard Cohen album, released in 2004.
It shows a further departure from that of Ten New Songs, with more female lead singing and a marked increase in read poetry over sung lyrics, two of these poems being written by other writers.
"On That Day" is a song about the September 11, 2001 attacks in New York City. The last track is a live recording of "Tennessee Waltz", from the Montreux Jazz Festival of 1985.
