UK artist Passenger has released his 13th studio album, ‘Songs For The Drunk And Broken Hearted’ The singer-songwriter (real name Mike Rosenberg) recorded the LP pre-coronavirus at his Black Crow Studios in his hometown of Brighton shortly after becoming newly single.
“Coming out of a break-up creates such a fragile window,” he said in a statement. “You’re so used to the safety of being with somebody and suddenly you’re out in the world on your own. And you get pissed and probably make some bad decisions. In some ways, you make it worse for yourself. But it’s a heady moment, losing love and being drunk. And it’s universal. Everyone goes through it at some stage.
Passenger’s ‘A Song For The Drunk And Broken Hearted’ oddly manages to invite hope and companionship despite its exploration of grief. Passenger is a complete expert at tugging at heartstrings through his soulful, melancholic, and haunting melodies but the latest venture sees the British singer delve into some hearty folk-based sounds. Again, we just adore this album & have had it on high rotation since it’s release!
