Reflecting on the transformative power of ‘Let Her Go,’ Passenger acknowledges it as a life-altering song that marked a clear distinction in his career—before and after its creation. Written during a regional tour of Australia in early 2011, the song’s inception was a profound moment, with the opening riff feeling instantly familiar.

Passenger credits a significant portion of the song’s success to Ed Sheeran, whose global tour as the opening act in the year preceding the song’s explosion played a pivotal role. Grateful for Sheeran’s support and collaboration on the re-recording, Passenger emphasizes the genuine connection they share and the inspiration drawn from Sheeran’s kindness and generosity.
