PASSENGER SHARES NEW SONG + VIDEO FOR “SUZANNE”

Today, British troubadour Passenger (Mike Rosenberg) shares new song “Suzanne” from his forthcoming album, Songs for the Drunk and Broken Hearted, set for release on January 8th 2021.  The song’s music video picks up where “A Song for the Drunk and Broken Hearted” left off – in a half empty dive bar where the camera’s focus moves away from the sad clown band and switches to one particular drunk and broken-hearted patron named Suzanne who is reflecting on days gone by. Watch the official video HERE.
 
Rosenberg explains, “This song tells the tale of an older lady, drinking alone in a bar and thinking back to a time when she was youthful and beautiful and had her whole life ahead of her . I think its a subject that I keep on returning to in my songs – The fleeting nature of youth and the inevitable passing of time. Suzanne had it all in front of her and wasted it and now sits longing for something that can never happen again.”
 
The majority of Songs for the Drunk and Broken Hearted was written when Rosenberg was newly single. “Coming out of a break-up creates such a fragile window,” he reflects. “You’re incredibly vulnerable for a few months. 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.”
 
Songs for the Drunk and Broken Hearted is available to pre-order HERE. All physical packaging of CDs and Vinyl will be made of 100% recycled material, and one tree will be planted for every physical piece sold  via the Passenger webstore thanks to a partnership with Ecologi and the Eden Project.
