Platinum-Selling Passenger Was Once Treated Like A Human Garbage Can

Passenger’s breakthrough hit “Let Her Go” has been heard everywhere from the halls of VH1 to the Super Bowl. After the success of his most recent album, All The Little Lights, you’d think the lovely Brit would want to take some time to rest and reflect on everything he’s done right in the last year. Nope! He’s going right back to work.

The You Oughta Know alum stopped by Big Morning Buzz Live today to share some of his upcoming LP, Whispers, which will be released in June. Passenger, known to his folks as Michael David Rosenberg, also regaled host Nick Lachey with tales of his days busking as a teen everywhere from his home in the U.K. to Australia. While many of the passersby were being treated to the sounds of a future platinum-selling artist, one bystander saw Passenger and his guitar case as a convenient trash receptacle for the remains of her breakfast. Her loss! See more of his chat with Nick and watch him perform new single, “Scare Away the Dark,” below.
