Passenger Announces New Album Out September 23; Shares Official Video For “Somebody’s Love”
June 17, 2016 BY Nettwerk
British singer/songwriter Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, announces his new studio album, Young As The Morning, Old As The Sea, set for release on September 23rd. Gorgeous lead single, “Somebody’s Love,” is available today, along with the official video for the track. Passenger will be in the U.S. and Canada for a short run of intimate shows and festival dates (below), with a full North American tour in the works for early 2017.
Young As The Morning, Old As The Sea sees Mike Rosenberg once again co-produce alongside Chris Vallejo (INXS, Empire of the Sun), this time at Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studios in Auckland, as well as Linear studios in Sydney. The epic landscapes in both New Zealand and on a recent trip Mike took to Iceland lent inspiration to create a newly panoramic album, with themes of relationships and the passing of time that are at once personal and universal. The album was written alongside an incredible band of musicians – Ben Edgar (guitar), Rob Clader (bass), Peter Marin (drums) Jon Solo (keys).
Passenger has seen massive worldwide success since the release of multi-platinum “Let Her Go” from album All The Little Lights. The accompanying video just joined YouTube’s elite The Billion View Club, only the 23rd music video to do so. Passenger released Whispers in 2014, which debuted at #12 on the Billboard 200. He spent the next two years playing sold-out show across the world and demanding the attention of thousands upon thousands of festival goers with only his voice and acoustic guitar.
Stay tuned for more news from Passenger.
