Singer-songwriter Passenger, aka Brighton’s Mike Rosenberg, has today released new single Hell Or High Water, plus the song’s accompanying video

Directed by long-time Passenger collaborator Jarrad Seng, the video is a result of a three-week road trip across the USA. The massive landscapes the pair traversed provide the perfect backdrop for the widescreen, Americana-influenced sound of Hell Or High Water

“The song is a personal inquisition,” says Rosenberg of the track. “I came out of a relationship a few years ago, and I was just baffled by it. Was it something I’d done? Something she’d done? The video was shot over a few days in various national parks – Monument Valley, Valley Of Fire, Death Valley and Joshua Tree. These epic and vast landscapes really help to portray a feeling of being lost in a hopeless quest for answers”

Passenger also continues to busk and is set to undertake a short busking tour later this month. “Busking is fundamental to how Passenger started and also to who I am now,” says Rosenberg. “It offers the chance for anyone to hear the songs live, not just people who can afford it, not just people who are old enough for a ticket, or young enough for a ticket. It’s inclusive, and I think that’s what music should be”

Dates are as follows…

May 25 – Glasgow
May 26 – Manchester
May 27 – London
May 28 – Brighton

All busks will start around 12.30pm, and location details will be revealed via Passenger socials – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram
