Review: Passenger – ‘Somebody’s Love’


A calming, mellow folk/pop track with some tinkly acoustic guitar

  • 8

British singer-songwriter, Passenger, has returned to the music scene with a brand new mellow acoustic pop track and I feel like I’m fifteen again.

‘Somebody’s Love,’ is the lead single on the upcoming seventh album Young As The Morning, Old As The Sea, which comes after all the profits from his sixth studio album, Whispers II, were donated to a UNICEF UK initiative to help children in Liberia.

The video for ‘Somebody’s Love’ features some beautiful Icelandic landscapes and a flaming rowboat, and is paired with a track that highlights the unique and distinctive voice of Passenger (aka Mike Rosenberg). The single has a catchy chorus, and a similar folky atmosphere to his 2012 international hit ‘Let Her Go’. The tinkly steel and acoustic guitars create a lovely sound which at points sound slightly countryish and it’s definitely a song that he’ll play halfway through a live set with the whole crowd waving lighters or their illuminated phones high up in the air, in time to the chilled out rhythms.

‘Somebody’s Love’ is out now via Black Crow Records
