Passenger has shared new track ‘Suzanne’, lifted from his forthcoming brand new album ‘Songs For The Drunk And Broken Hearted’, due out on 08 January 2021.
The track’s accompanying music video picks up where the official visuals for ‘A Song for the Drunk and Broken Hearted’ left off, with the focus moving away from the sad clown band to a heartbroken patron named ‘Suzanne’.
Platinum selling singer-songwriter AKA Mike Rosenberg explains, “This song tells the tale of an older lady, drinking alone in a bar and thinking back to a time when she was youthful and beautiful and had her whole life ahead of her . I think its a subject that I keep on returning to in my songs – The fleeting nature of youth and the inevitable passing of time. Suzanne had it all in front of her and wasted it and now sits longing for something that can never happen again.”
