The British singer, whose real name is Michael Rosenberg, is still striving from the success of his hit folk single, “Let Her Go”. The singer-songwriter is hoping for a successful summer with the release of the new album, which is made up of 11 songs varying from fictional tales of death to love and aging. According to Rosenberg the new album is the most “up” album he has ever made.
“It’s quite cinematic. There are lots of big stories and big ideas. There are also some somber moments about loneliness and death but, hey, it wouldn’t be a Passenger album without those. Mostly though, it’s a really positive album.”
Fans will get to experience the new music when Passenger debuts the lead single, “Scare Away the Dark”, on “The Tonight Show” on Friday, March 28. The single will hit iTunes and other digital stores in North America on April 1.
The 29-year-old Rosenberg hit the mainstream with his hit “Let Her Go” which has sold over 2.5 million copies. The song gained even more popularity when it was used in a Budweiser commercial that aired during this year’s Super Bowl. “Whispers” will actually be his fifth album as a solo act.
