His eight studio album, Young As The Morning, Old As The Sea sees Mike Rosenberg (aka Passenger) once again co-produce alongside Chris Vallejo (INXS, Empire of the Sun), this time at Neil Finn’s Roundhead Studios in Auckland, as well as Linear studios in Sydney. The epic landscapes in both New Zealand and on a recent trip Mike took to Iceland lent inspiration to create a newly panoramic album, with themes of relationships and the passing of time that are at once personal and universal. The album was written alongside an incredible band of musicians – Ben Edgar (guitar), Rob Clader (bass), Peter Marin (drums) Jon Solo (keys).
Passenger has seen massive worldwide success since the release of multi-platinum “Let Her Go” from album All The Little Lights. The accompanying video just joined YouTube’s elite The Billion View Club, only the 23rd music video to do so. Passenger released Whispers in 2014, which debuted at #12 on the Billboard 200. He spent the next two years playing sold-out show across the world and demanding the attention of thousands upon thousands of festival goers with only his voice and acoustic guitar.
