English folk hottie Michael Rosenberg aka Passenger
stopped by Conan
last night to perform "Heart's On Fire" from his new album Whispers
, which came out in June on Black Crow. Try as I might to see past my boundless attraction, I can't help but say it was a lovely performance.
It's easy to see why Passenger works alone after his powerfully quiet appearance last night. His slow and acoustic guitar, trembly little voice, and poignantly closed eyes made for a performance that was, in Conan's words, "beautifully done." Besides, he ended the song with a bashful "thank you, cheers" in that superb accent of his.
Cheers to you too, Passenger.
