Acclaimed UK singer/songwriter Mike Rosenberg celebrates 10 years since the release of his seminal album 'All The Little Lights' with the release of 'All The Little Lights (Anniversary Edition)'.

Entirely re-recorded and completely re-imagined, Passenger infuses these songs with another decade of experience and wisdom as he calls friends like Foy Vance, Gabrielle Aplin, and Nina Nesbitt for special collaborations. Through it all, he preserves all the spirit and soul of the original while breathing new life into these well-loved Passenger staples.

With the album's release comes a brand-new video for the re-recording of 'Let Her Go' featuring one final collaboration with Passenger's longtime friend and tour mate, Ed Sheeran. 

The original global smash single went #1 in 19 countries, and today it has over 6 billion combined streams, is the #2 most Shazamed song of all time, and remains the 16th most viewed video on YouTube of all time.

Passenger reflects on 'Let Her Go': "Where do I begin… it's a truly life-altering song. Four minutes of music that shifted my trajectory entirely. It's so big that I think of my career in two sections - before and after 'Let Her Go.' 

"A massive part of the song's success is down to Ed Sheeran. If he hadn't taken me around the world as his opening act in the year leading up to the song blowing up, then it simply wouldn't have happened. I owe him an awful lot - he has championed me and opened doors that were securely locked. He's an incredibly kind and thoughtful person who somehow finds time and energy to lift others up around him even though he carries the world on his shoulders. He's a constant inspiration and a fierce friend.

"So, when it came to re-recording this song, there was only ever going to be one person that I’d want to duet on it.

"I'm grateful to 'Let Her Go' beyond words. Not just for its success, but for the opportunity to reach people all over the world, just for four minutes, and make some kind of small difference. What an amazing thing."

Passenger now celebrates everything before, during, and after this era with 'All The Little Lights (Anniversary Edition)'.
