One of the world's best-known singer-songwriters of the 2010s, Passenger (Mike Rosenberg) is taking his internationally acclaimed album "All the Little Lights" for a special anniversary tour, celebrating ten years of the record's legacy of touching human hearts through its deeply personal lyrical tales. From a street performer to a Platinum-selling singer-songwriter, Passenger continues to touch the lives of listeners around the world.
In celebration of the album's decade-long celebration, Passenger released a special anniversary edition, featuring Ed Sheeran, Nina Nesbitt, Gabrielle Aplin, and Foy Vance. Taking listeners back to the album's birth, "I was busking around Australia, recording at the same time. I remember busking in the morning and then going to the studio and paying the musicians with the money that I made that day busking; a very different life for sure," he shared via House of Solo Magazine.
As the album came out in 2012, it marked Passenger as one of the biggest singer-songwriters of the decade, driven by the immense success of his hit single "Let Her Go". To date, the track has over six billion global streams, definitely a crowd-favorite in every live performance.
"The songs have had a life already and some of these songs I’ve been playing in every single live show since I wrote them. They’re fan favourites and they mean so much to so many people," he added.
Breathing new life into "All The Little Lights" amidst a new decade in music, Mike shares that he had to maintain the integrity of the original recordings, as every track holds a special place in the hearts of his fans. Switching things up in the album's deep cuts, Passenger shares the album's finest songs with a roster of special guests - Nina Nesbitt on "Feather on the Clyde", Gabrielle Aplin on "Circles", Foy Vance on "Life’s for the Living", and Ed Sheeran on "Let Her Go". Every featured artists offers a special touch to these timeless tracks that resound in all of our hearts.
"Let Her Go" marked Passenger to become one of the decade's biggest singer-songwriters. He owes the track's success to Ed Sheeran, for allowing him to open for his shows leading up to the song's massive breakthrough. "A massive part of the song’s success is down to Ed Sheeran. If he hadn’t have taken me around the world as his opening act in the year leading up to the song blowing up, then it simply wouldn’t have happened," he shared via The Noize Magazine. "So, when it came to re-recording this song, there was only ever going to be one person that I’d want to duet on it."
