The British troubadour Passenger is the latest addition to the You Oughta Know family, and it’s no wonder why. The plaintive poet’s song “Let Her Go” has already gone to #1 in sixteen countries, and is just starting to gain momentum on the charts here. His latest LP, All The Little Lights, has been championed by fellow YOK alum Ed Sheeran, and we got the chance to discuss all of the tracks on the album with Mike Rosenberg himself when he swung through NYC recently for the latest installment of our series Track-By-Track.
Yesterday, we got the stories behind the first six cuts on the album —“Things That Stop You Dreaming,” “Let Her Go,” “Staring At The Stars,” “All The Little Lights,” “The Wrong Direction” and “Circles”— and today, we’ve got Passenger’s exclusive Track-By-Track commentary for you on the final six songs on his remarkable new album, All The Little Lights, for you.

EXCERPT OF PASSENGER’S COMMENTARY: “I haven’t had a house for five years, I’ve just been sleeping in hostels or hotels or mates’ couches or whatever. You know, living like that kind of frees you up. You just start looking at life differently.”
