Passenger Headed To North America

Singer/songwriter Michael Rosenberg revealed some news this week that is worth shouting about. But instead, the English folk rocker best known as Passenger will probably just whisper. He has a new video to show off along with dates for a summer North American tour.

Passenger is supporting the follow-up to 2012’s All The Little Lights, which includes the international hit single “Let Her Go.”

Whispers is due out June 10. On Monday Passenger unveiled the video for the track “Heart’s On Fire.”

The singer/songwriter explained in a post on Facebook, “We made this video for it in a forest somewhere in Australia with a bunch of mates. Huge thanks to Jarrad Seng Photography for somehow making this possible!

“This is a really big deal for me and everyone I work with, if you like the video and want to do us a massive favour than please feel free to share it with your friends. It feels so good to finally be getting new music out. Thank you all so so much for listening. I’ll never be able to explain how much it means.”
