Rosenberg says: "This song is for all of those people that never want to go to bed after a night out and just want to stay out drinking for as long as they can. 

"I've definitely been that guy before, and I know a few others that have. 

"The idea of having to be on your own in a dark room with ringing in your ears is not a pleasant one." 
Out January 8th 2021, Songs For The Drunk And Broken Hearted is an album populated by drunk and broken hearted characters. 

Most of the songs were written following Rosenberg's own breakup:

"You're incredibly vulnerable for a few months. 

"You're so used to the safety of being with somebody and suddenly you're out in the world on your own. And you get pissed and probably make some bad decisions. 

"It's universal. Most everyone goes through it at some stage." 

The accompanying music video for Remember To Forget completes a trilogy of connected videos in Passenger's universe of drunk and broken hearted characters. 

The series began with title track A Song for the Drunk and Broken Hearted, which set the scene in a half empty dive bar with patrons drowning their sorrows – watch the video. 

This was then followed by Suzanne, which turned the viewers' attention to an older woman sitting alone reflecting on days gone by
Hailing from Brighton, Passenger is a multi-award winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter. 

Although still known for his busking, he long ago made the journey from street corners to stadiums.
