Passenger announces surprise new album, out tomorrow

Passenger has announced a new album, and if you saw any of the live stream last night (which you can catch below, but not live) (obviously), you’ll have heard that it’s his most americana-y record to date, with lots of lovely slide and Jayhawks style piano.  The record “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” lands less than a year on from last year’s “Young as the Morning, Old as the Sea” which went to number one in the UK and several other countries, and comes just a few days after Mike Rosenberg announced that he’d be taking a break from touring for a “very long time”.  The album will be available to buy from the official website only, although it will be available to stream on all the usual services if you’re a tight arse.
