All The Little Lights

Album: All The Little Lights (2012)

  • Lyrics
  • This is the title track of the third studio album by singer Mike Rosenberg who records under the moniker of Passenger. Born and bred in the United Kingdom, Rosenberg first took his act in October 2009 to Australia where he has earned a big following. All but one of the All The Little Lights tracks were recorded at Sydney's Linear Recording studio. He was joined by a core Australian band that included Boy & Bear drummer Tim Hart, jazz bassist Cameron Undy, and keyboards player Stu Hunter, from Katie Noonan & The Captains.
  • Passenger told VH1 that it is difficult to explain this song's meaning "without sounding a bit like a hippie." He added: "I think it's important with songwriting that you're honest, and you're vulnerable. There's a balance, because you don't want to specifically talk about yourself the whole time. You want to relate to people, and you want to give them the opportunity to put their own emotions into these songs — but every now and again, I like to put something specific and personal into them."
