Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, has shared a new music video for fan favorite track “27” from his latest album, Whispers. Directed by James Lees (One Republic, Bloc Party), the video reflects the message of the song, staying true to yourself and persevering even when inundated with opinions and challenges.

Passenger saw career high chart debuts around the globe with the release of Whispers in June, landing at #12 on the Billboard 200, #1 on the Folk Albums chart, #5 on the Rock Albums chart here in the States. He wrapped his North American tour with 11 consecutive sell-outs, including LA’s The Wiltern, and will continue touring through Europe and the UK through the end of the year.
Passenger Live Reviews:
“Despite his lack of backing players, Rosenberg more than fills the stage with his infectious energy, which is felt by everyone from superfans singing along in the pit to couples canoodling in the upper balcony…what shines through most of all during Rosenberg’s 90-minute set is how easily he’s able to make a 2,000-person show feel like a fireside serenade.” – Billboard.com
“He kept a massive crowd captivated with heart-warming songs…The park was filled with emotional faces, smiles all around, with all eyes transfixed on Rosenberg’s joyful smile.”
– Prefix Mag (NYC’s Central Park SummerStage)
“Several times at Echostage, the cavernous establishment almost went silent. It was an accomplishment… The silence-bringer was Mike Rosenberg, also known as Passenger, an unimposing, Ed Sheeran-approved English folk-pop singer with a self-effacing attitude and a fan base willing to gently shush chatty bystanders…Sure, it was a docile crowd… but it would be unfair to undervalue Rosenberg’s ability to hold a room…he embraced the role of seasoned entertainer.” – The Washington Post
Whispers is the follow up to 2012’s All The Little Lights, which featured the international hit single and 4x Platinum “Let Her Go.” All The Little Lights debuted on the Billboard Heatseekers chart upon its release in August 2012, where it remained for 45 consecutive weeks, grabbing the #1 position multiple times before crossing into the top 100 of the Billboard 200, peaking at #26 in January 2014. “Let Her Go” peaked at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 following the songs use in the Budweiser “Puppy Love” Superbowl commercial. The single, which boasts over 415 Million YouTube views, was also #1 at Hot AC, AC and Triple A Radio, as well as Top 10 at Top 40 Radio. During his 2013 sold-out world tour, Passenger appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Live! With Kelly and Michael. At the top of 2014, he performed “Let Her Go” on the Today Show before turning his attention to the new album. In the spring, Passenger debuted his new single, “Scare Away The Dark,” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, followed by performances on VH1’s Big Morning Buzz, The Queen Latifah Show and Conan. He was also featured on NPR’s All Things Considered.
