Passenger - Runaway [Blue Vinyl] (LP)

Runaway [Blue Vinyl]
In Stock
There have always been two sides to Passenger: the epic, radio-friendly sound represented Let Her Go, and Young as the Morning Old as the Sea, and the more introverted, singer-songwriter side heard on, for instance, Whispers II (2015) and The Boy Who Cried Wolf (2017). Runaway finds Passenger embracing the epic once again: the melodies are unforgettable, the choruses colossal. The album, Rosenberg'€™s 10th in 11 years, was recorded between the UK and Australia with his co-producer, Chris Vallejo, but its aesthetic is North American.

"My dad is American,"€ Rosenberg explains, "€œand we used to go over every other summer when we were kids. I always loved it. I guess I was seduced by it a little bit. It was such a culture shock coming from England."€ Sonically, too, Runaway draws on Americana, for instance the early work of Ryan Adams. There is some lap steel, some mandolin, and 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.

This limited edition LP format is pressed on blue vinyl, and is only available through independent shops such as ourselves.
