Passenger Is Set To Explode: Listen To His Future Smash “Let Her Go”

bf1994102c9070ca9071799a78569fe3 Passenger Is Set To Explode: Listen To His Future Smash “Let Her Go”

Passenger is perhaps 2013′s least likely chart sensation. The bearded folk singer recorded three solo albums in relative anonymity before catching lightning in a bottle with gut-wrenching ballad “Let Her Go”. It struck a chord around the globe, topping the charts in 16 countries and counting. Mike Rosenberg (the Brit’s real name) now has his sights set on the US and is a good bet to repeat his chart-conquering ways with the eerily pretty ode to lost love already shooting up iTunes.

So what makes “Let It Go” so endearing? Well, the 29-year-old’s no frills approach to music — it’s just a beautiful voice and a scattering of mournful instruments — is a breath of fresh air in a market saturated with overproduced club-bangers. Passenger is also a born storyteller and wordsmith, which allows him to give universal emotions a distinctly poet twist (“staring at the ceiling in the dark, same old empty feeling in your heart”). Think Neil Young in his ’70s hey day but slightly less depressed. Check out the suitably lo-fi video below.
