The name will need no introduction to many of you as Mike Rosenberg has already reached global heights performing as Passenger in a very short space of time. His new album ‘Whispers’ was released this week and is also an Album of the Month here on Folk Radio UK (read our album review for Whispers here).
It has just been announced that his new single ‘Scare Away The Dark’ will be released on July 28th on Black Crow/Island Records. Watch the new video for it below:
‘Whispers’ is Passenger’s 6th studio album and the follow-up to ‘All The Little Lights’ which was driven by the global smash and Ivor Novello winning ‘Let Her Go’; the biggest selling single in the UK last year, a top 5 US hit, and a chart topper in over 20 countries.
Passenger spent much of May re-visiting his roots; busking around the UK strumming through old songs, new songs and covers. This time, however, there was a huge difference with thousands upon thousands of people turning up, bringing Edinburgh to a stand still and the Tate Modern’s concourse packed to the rafters.
This summer Mike Rosenberg heads out to the US for a host of live dates before returning home for a 19 date UK tour spanning the length and breadth of the country finishing off with two shows at the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo December 7th and 8th.
