Asha Gold’s ‘Passenger’ is exactly the kind of Friday Feeling vibe we need right now. Some days it’s hard to stay positive, but we can always rely on good music to turn that around.
We especially love that ‘Passenger’ provides a moment of nostalgia and yearning for the freedom of travel, and we’re daydreaming about our future journeys while listening to this piece of upbeat, contemporary R&B.
“Passenger’ was one of the first songs I ever wrote. I had been travelling in Europe, and on my train home I heard a guy on the platform playing a riff on guitar which caught my attention. I asked him what the chords were, and wrote the song the next day with the voice note he had kindly recorded for me. It’s about escapism and how all your stresses seem to fade when you’re travelling, constantly on the move.” – Asha Gold
