me a while to get around to really listening to it until about a month ago. The album is different. Not every song is all about love and romance and heartbreak, some of them are actually kind of funny. One of them, called 'I Hate', is literally just a list of things that Mike hates, and it's pretty silly.
I think the way Rich's brother Ed heard about Passenger is because Mike toured with Ed Sheeran last year, and he's a shared love between me, Rich, and Ed. So far in America, just like Ed Sheeran at first, Passenger has not caught on. This is something I'm so used to and have talked about countless times, but the first single off of this album 'Let Her Go' has hit #1 in sixteen countries, so it's just a matter of time before this song is played on the radio right after a techno or pop hit. It's annoying to me because I think that folk should have it's own place and not be downgraded by being overplayed to a lot of people who normally would never like a folk song, but it's good publicity for the artist and that's what's more important at the end of the day I suppose.
Listen for yourself, and definitely check out the video and the rest of the album if you like what you hear. Like I mentioned, the rest of the album isn't as mainstream, which is why this song is the obvious single, but I love it, and if you like folk and exploring other types of music, you'll like it too. Happy Tuesday :)
