Michael David Rosenberg werkt samen met Andrew Philips vier jaar lang aan het debuutalbum Wicked Man dat in 2007 verschijnt. Rosenberg kon er maar weinig succes mee boeken en na een tijdje zijn liedjes op straat te hebben gezongen werkt hij in Australië aan het album Flight Of The Crow.

Ed Sheeran is onder de indruk van de zanger en vraagt hem om zijn voorprogramma te verzorgen. In maart van 2012 staat hij voor het eerst in Nederland op een podium.
Van het album All The Little Lights, dat een paar maanden later verschijnt, wordt Let Her Go een zeer succesvol hitparade-debuut. De single staat tien weken in de top-3 van de Top 40, waarvan twee weken op nummer 1.

In 2013 doet Passenger Nederland opnieuw aan, maar nu als hoofdact met uitverkochte concerten in Amsterdam en Utrecht en ook is de zanger te zien op Pinkpop. Zowel Holes als The Wrong Direction bereiken de Top 40, maar blijven ver verwijderd van het succes van Let Her Go.

In juni van 2014 verschijnt het nieuwe album, Whispers. Van dat album verschijnen ook Hearts On Fire, Scare Away The Dark en Golden Leaves als single.

Het zevende studioalbum van Passenger, Young As The Morning, verschijnt op 23 september 2016. Daarvan verschijnen voor de release de singles Somebody's Love en Anywhere.

Songtekst

When I was a kid the things I did
Were hidden under the grid
Young and naive I never believed
That love could be so well hid
With regret I'm willing to bet
And say the older you get
It gets harder to forgive
And harder to forget

It gets under your shirt
Like a dagger at work
The first cut is the deepest
But the rest still flipping hurt
You build your heart of plastic
Get cynical and sarcastic
And end up in the corner on your own

Cause I'd love to feel love
But I can't stand the rejection
I hide behind my jokes
As a form of protection
I thought I was close
But under further inspection
It seems I've been running
In the wrong direction, oh no

So what's the point in getting your hopes up
When all you're ever getting is choked up
When you're coked up
And can't remember the reason why you broke up
You call her in the morning
When you're coming down and falling
Like an old man on the side of the road

Cause when you're apart you don't want to mingle
When you're together you want to be single
Ever the chase to taste the kiss of bliss
That made your heart tingle
How much greener the grass is
With those rose tinted glasses
But the butterflies they flutter by
And leave us on our arses

Cause I'd love to feel love
But I can't stand the rejection
I hide behind my jokes
As a form of protection
I thought I was close
But under further inspection
It seems I've been running
In the wrong direction

There's fish in the sea for me
To make a selection
I'd jump in if it wasn't
For my ear infection
Cause all I want to do
Is try to make a connection
It seems I've been running
In the wrong direction, oh

Oh, I'd love to feel love
But I can't stand the rejection
I hide behind my jokes
As a form of protection
I thought I was close
But under further inspection
It seems I've been running
In the wrong direction

I'd love to feel love
But I can't stand the rejection
I hide behind my jokes
As a form of protection
And I thought I was close
But under further inspection
It seems I've been running
In the wrong direction, oh

It seems I come running
In the wrong direction, oh
It seems I come running
In the wrong direction, oh
Well, it seems I've been running
In the wrong direction, oh no
It seems I've been running
In the wrong direction, oh
