PASSENGER: RUNAWAY

PASSENGER: RUNAWAY

**SUNRISE EXCLUSIVE VINYL ALSO AVAILABLE**

Following the release of new single “Hell Or High Water,” UK singer/songwriter Passenger (Mike Rosenberg) has announced his new album Runaway. Runaway was recorded between the UK and Australia, but its aesthetic is North American, thanks in large part to his American father who organized trips back to the States every other summer while Mike was growing up in Brighton, UK. While some songs point to specific locations such as Yellowstone or Detroit, Mike imagined all the new songs unfolding against a backdrop of American landscapes, which led to a month long road trip across the U.S. to create a series of live acoustic versions of each album track, and videos to match.

The gorgeous video for “Hell Or High Water” was shot over a few days across various national and state parks, including Monument Valley, Valley of Fire, Death Valley and Joshua Tree. Says Rosenberg, “These epic and vast landscapes really help to portray a feeling of being lost in a hopeless quest for answers.”

Sonically, too, Runaway draws on Americana more so than past Passenger albums. There is some lap steel, some mandolin, a little banjo, all courtesy of guitarist Benjamin Edgar. Rosenberg is also joined on the album by bassist Rob Calder, drummer Peter Marin and keyboard player Jon Hansen.
