MP3: Passenger – “Shape Of Love (feat. Boy & Bear)”

Passenger

When most people travel across Australia, they return home with boomerangs and opals and Ken Done placemats. Not Mike Rosenberg. When the Passenger frontman ventured from the UK to Australia last year to play shows and write a new album, he returned home with the experience of having worked with Australia’s finest singer-songwriters.

Busking for change on the streets, Mike managed to scrounge together enough dough to record ‘Flight Of The Crow’ - an album full of collaborations with friends he met along the way.

Oh, and by “friends” I mean: Lior, Josh Pyke, Katie Noonan, Boy & Bear, Kate Miller Heidke, Simon J Berckelman (Philadelphia Grand Jury), Brian Campeau & Elana Stone, Matt Corby, and more.

And if that ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ of Australian line-ups doesn’t impress you, well just check out “Shape Of Love” – Mike’s collaboration with Sydney’s Boy & Bear, and the first track to emerge from the album. With its cooed vocal harmony and country-tinged acoustics, it’s the perfect journeyman track. Something to whistle along to as you seek adventures on the open road.
