Let Her Go was recorded at Sydney's Linear Recording and co-produced by Mike Rosenberg and Chris Vallejo.
The recording features Australian musicians Stu Larsen, Georgia Mooney, Stu Hunter, Cameron Undy and Glenn
Wilson. "Let Her Go" was released in July 2012 as the second single from Passenger's third album All
the Little Lights.
From the Album
Mike Rosenberg explained the song's meaning to Female First: "In my mind the song has two meanings;" he said,
"the first is quite literal as I wrote it after a break up and it is about letting her go. But then there is a
bigger idea going on and is more about not really understanding and knowing what you have until it is gone and
I think everyone can definitely relate to."
Rosenberg told VH1: "It didn't take long to write, at all. Under an hour, I think. When I wrote it, I
definitely felt like it had something… I never had a song on the radio, I didn't believe I could have
a song on the radio, because generally, folk music doesn't get on commercial radio, it just doesn't.
I kinda thought that that kind of success was for other people, people who really tried to get that kind
of success, because I never have."
