Passenger – “Whispers”
I’ve never cared much for Michael David Rosenberg’s (aka passenger) voice. I find it rather airy and to be honest, I scrunched up my forehead the first time I heard “Let her go” from his 2012 album “All the little lights”.
But, I promised myself that I would always look deeper into the artists that I encounter. Give them a chance to impress me with the other elements of their craft, and his latest album “Whispers” has certainly delivered…
So I’m a little late I know, but here’s the next installment from Jason Mraz’s up coming album “YES!”
I love the type of set up they have going in this video. Small and intimate. Perfect for the vibe of this song.

On Sunday, Jason Mraz announced the launch date of his next album entitled “YES!”. 15 July is the day we’ll all be looking forward to, but till then, he has promised to premiere a new song each week till the full album drops.
For this album he has teamed up with Raining Jane, an all female indie band from Los Angeles, which is good news. Previous collaborations have resulted in some amazing music, and the lead single “Love Someone” is no exception.
According to an interview with Radio.com, Mraz and the 4 girls of Raining Jane were just walking down a dirt road in Virginia when the ideas for this song were penned. They just grabbed an instrument each and started “making things up”.
If this is a true taste of what “YES!” is going to be like, then we are really in for a treat! Jason Mraz is one of those innovative and intelligent musicians that always delivers an astounding performance in all of his work.
Check back here for next weeks track.
