Cockburn's most successful work came in the 1980s with the emergence of his more urban, global and then eventually political subject matter, particularly on albums such as Humans, Inner city Front and Stealing Fire. He released his 24th album, titled Small Source of Comfort, in 2011 and has since continued to experiment with his music and perform for live audiences around the world.
