Passenger Releases New Album 'Patchwork'

Friday, 10 July 2020 Written by Huw Baines

Passenger has surprise released his new album.

The follow up to 2019’s ‘Sometimes It's Something, Sometimes It's Nothing at All’, ‘Patchwork’ was written and recorded during lockdown alongside producer Chris Vallejo and guest musicians Andrew Philip and Richard Brinklow.

All proceeds from the record will benefit the Trussell Trust. “It was a strange and lonely feeling to suddenly be on my own for weeks and writing these songs became a massive source of hope and comfort to me,” Passenger wrote. “I hope they give others those same feelings.”


Hello everyone,   I’m extremely excited to say that my 12th studio album “patchwork” is out today and you can listen to it now (link in my bio) 🤗  i’m really proud of this one - I wrote almost all of it during lockdown (other than the Lewis Capaldi cover... I really wish that was my song 😉) so the whole album comes from an extremely honest and vulnerable place   it was a strange and lonely feeling to suddenly be on my own for weeks and writing these songs became a massive source of hope and comfort to me. I hope they give others those same feelings You may recognise the songs from the little live videos I posted as I was writing them. the versions on the album are of course different but we’ve kept them bare and natural and I hope very true to their origins.   I’m delighted to say that every penny made from this album will be donated to a uk based food bank charity @trusselltrust who do incredible and increasingly necessary work in getting food to people who need it we haven’t pressed any cds or vinyl so there are no physical copies. You can stream from all the normal spots and you can also download from my website for £5 plus the option to make an extra charitable donation if you would like to  I want to say a massive thank you to Chris Vallejo for engineering/producing/mixing/mastering and self isolating in order to make this crazy little project happen.   to Andrew Philips for adding such beautiful textures and electric guitars and Richard Brinklow for his lovely piano work!   To @sarahlarnach.art for absolutely nailing the artwork 👌  to Dan Medland and Rebekah Tayler for always working so hard and trusting in me.   And lastly to you guys, for listening to my songs, coming with me on this musical adventure and for the constant stream of love and support. None of this would work without it. Thank you so much for letting me do this - I appreciate it more than ever.   Please share this record around as much as you can - as ever it’s hugely down to word of mouth...  I hope you love this album as much as I have loved creating it So much love and thanks Mike x  Ps this album is dedicated to my new niece baby Skye xxx
