Passenger’s ‘Young As The Morning Old As The Sea’ #1 In UK And More
October 3, 2016 BY Nettwerk
Passenger’s latest album, Young As The Morning Old As The Sea, beat out both Bruce Springsteen and Shawn Mendes to land at #1 in his native UK, as well as Australia, New Zealand and Switzerland, a career milestone for the British troubadour. Mike Rosenberg (Passenger) spent release week connecting with his fans via his various social media platforms — a combined reach of over 6 million followers – starting with a Facebook Live event from his sold-out album release show at London’s Bush Hall.
When Bruce Springsteen pulled ahead of him in the chart race, Passenger did what he does best: quickly penned and shared an original and thoroughly entertaining song called “Fighting for #1 (with Bruce Springsteen).” Watch it here:
