Passenger isn’t playing around. After scoring an unlikely but well-deserved commercial breakthrough with triple platinum hit “Let Her Go”, the Brit hasn’t lost any time recording new material. His fifth studio album Whispers is set for release on June 10 with new single “Scare Away The Dark” hitting iTunes on April 1.

The song, interestingly enough, is actually not that new. Passenger has been performing “Scare Away The Dark” at live shows for the best part of a year and his hardcore fans already know the words by heart. The upbeat (by his standards) rant against technology and modern life definitely shows a different side to the bearded folk singer. See Whisper‘s tracklist and a live performance of the 29-year-old’s new single after the jump.

Whispers tracklist:

1. Coins In A Fountain 2. 27 3. Heart’s On Fire 4. Bullets 5. Golden Leaves 6. Thunder 7. Rolling Stone 8. Start A Fire 9. Whispers 10. Riding To New York 11. Scare Away The Dark
