Passenger (Mike Rosenberg) is back with a sentimental and moving music video for his new single “Suzanne” from his twelfth album the forthcoming “Songs for the Drunk and Broken Hearted,“ out on January 8, 2021. A song that touches on the fleeting nature of youth, Passenger displays thoughtful instrumentation, rich and honest vocals, and his patented poetic bounce, as he sings softly and sweetly. A songwriter for the ages, Passenger displays a direct and uncomplicated understanding of lyrical and melodic mastery.
The music video for “Suzanne” (below) picks up where his previously released “A Song for the Drunk and Broken Hearted” left off – in a half-empty dive bar where the camera’s focus moves away from the sad clown band and switches to one particular drunk and broken-hearted patron named Suzanne who is reflecting on days gone by.
Rosenberg explains, “This song tells the tale of an older lady, drinking alone in a bar and thinking back to a time when she was youthful and beautiful and had her whole life ahead of her. I think it’s a subject that I keep on returning to in my songs – the fleeting nature of youth and the inevitable passing of time. Suzanne had it all in front of her and wasted it and now sits longing for something that can never happen again.”
