Young as the Morning Old as the Sea is the seventh studio album by British indie folk singer-songwriter Passenger, released in September 2016 via Black Crow Records.

Passenger is the stage name used by British singer-songwriter Mike Rosenberg, who gained widespread success with his single Let Her Go from his third album All The Little Lights. Passenger has achieved a high level of success in Australia where his albums have reached the Top 10.

Passenger toured in Australia in 2009 generating a big following and recorded his albums Flight of The Crow and All The Little Lights in Australia using Australian musicians.

His latest album Young as the Morning Old as the Sea was recorded in Australia, New Zealand and the UK. His travels in New Zealand and Iceland form the inspiration for the album and it deals with themes of passing relationships and of time.

The first listen by "The Captain" finds the album familiar in sound and sonic textures - you know you are listening to a Passenger album. When We Were Young is a lovely little song and you will find yourself picking up the melody quickly, with lovely backing strings and vocals embellishing the accoustic guitars. The album's first single Somebody's Love is a nice little balad with his quavering voice providing an emotional connection to the song, it draws you in to listen, with subtle harmonies and electic guitar work in the background. The second single Anywhere is an up tempo number that opens with electric guitar and hammond organ and then segues into the opening verse, and catchy chorus, a nice little number.

Fools Gold is another nice song that evolves from a stipped back beginning of guitars and vocals into a song with backing instrumentation and voices. Passenger's voice is the the main connection for "The Captain" - it is vulnerable and emotional and draws a connection to him - it's engaging music at its best.

Passenger fans will not be disappointed with this album and new listeners will find something to like as well.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album:  Somebody's Love, Anywhere, When We Were Young, Fools Gold, Home and Everything.

This is the limited edition deluxe vinyl version, a double album 2LP record set on black heavyweight vinyl, housed in a wide spine single sleeve with printed inner sleeves, 16 page booklet, second LP includes six accoustic tracks from the album and a digital download code, pressed in Europe.
