Earlier this year, emerging singer Patrick Droney shared his standout single "The Wire" along with his Kygo collaboration "Say You Will," which appears on the latter's recent album Golden Hour.

Now he's back with another irresistible track called "Passerby," his latest single, which was released on Friday. The emotional new track dives into a very personal space and further showcases his undeniable vocal prowess.

"There is so much sentiment attached to places—places we grew up, places we out grew, places we miss," he says. "It’s always a particular feeling for me when I return somewhere I know so well but can feel the gap of time in which life has moved on. The details of both my own perspective and my surroundings have shifted."

He continues: "The heart holds love and its absence in a similar way—what do we still recognize in each other after all this time and change? It’s a constant balance of looking back on what was, reckoning with what is and the uncertainty of what will be."

This is Droney's latest release on Warner Records and it seems there's probably more on the way soon.
