IT may seem like Michael David Rosenberg aka Passenger has just stepped onto the music scene following last year’s hit single Let Her Go and album All The Little Lights, but his latest offering Whispers is actually the Brighton-born singer’s fifth studio album.

Lead single Heart’s On Fire provides more of what he became famous for - a mellow mix of acoustic guitar with heart-felt lyrics. Folk-style offerings come from the likes of Bullets, and fans will be pleased to hear Riding To New York making it on to the track-list after he performed it on his last tour.

Meanwhile, 27 shows he isn’t willing to conform to fit the industry, and Scare Away The Dark takes a look at society as a whole. Fifth album it may be, but it’s still fantastic.

Passenger rightly proved to be one of the standout acts at last weekend’s Isle of Wight Festival and has even sold-out a show at the O2 Academy Bournemouth on November 12. This is one musician, who’s in the driving seat of their career.
