With his 2012 single Let Her Go, Michael David Rosenberg's career suddenly went stratospheric. The English singer-songwriter had been performing under the Passenger moniker, either on his own or as a band, for over a decade, quietly building a reputation for gentle, undulating indie folk. He even toured as support for his old friend Ed Sheeran for a time, but after Let Her Go's release, suddenly it was Rosenberg topping bills. A worldwide phenomenon, the single went over 3 times platinum in North America alone.
Now a household name, Passenger is gearing up for the release of his new album in June this year. Entitled Whispers, it's been billed by the man himself as a "really positive album", but expect it to be speckled with those delicate moments of heartbreak which have become his calling card.
Passenger will be showcasing Whispers with his biggest ever US Tour, which kicks off in August, before heading over to Europe and native UK towards the end of the year.
