Watch Now: British singer-songwriter Holly Humberstone releases new music video for her single ‘London Is Lonely‘ & supports girl in red on her U.S tour
“London Is Lonely,” her poignant latest single and first new music since the release of her acclaimed sophomore EP, The Walls Are Way Too Thin last fall. Capturing the darkness of the city Holly now calls home, the UK’s most exciting alt-pop star gives a stunning, lucid performance in an abandoned London Underground station, portraying the themes of isolation and disconnect.
Earlier this week, Holly kicked off her first-ever full length US tour supporting girl in red, a sold out run that will see the duo stopping in two dozen cities across North America this spring. Holly will continue her meteoric ascent with a performance at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 16th and April 23rd, 2022, followed by a momentous supporting guest slot on Olivia Rodrigo’s highly anticipated SOUR tour kicking off at the iconic Radio City Music Hall on April 26th.
She performed her new single “London is Lonely” live at the BRIT awards ceremony. The track was produced by long-time collaborator Rob Milton, and marks one of her most heartbreaking and poignant yet, as it chronicles the story of her move to London while feeling disconnected and isolated.
Led by her milestone single ‘Scarlett,’ “The Walls Are Way Too Thin” features her collaboration with The 1975’s Matty Healy ‘Please Don’t Leave Just Yet’, the cinematic title-track “The Walls Are Way Too Thin” and slowburn ‘Haunted House’, as well as her latest single “Friendly Fire.” The Walls Are Way Too Thinsolidifies Humberstone as a voice for her generation, and demonstrates a songwriting prowess that defies her 22-years of age and only two years in the limelight. Always striving to write lyrics that are deeply personal to herself, the honest storytelling at the heart of Holly’s craft has resonated with people everywhere and pinpointed a shared commonality in the peaks and valleys of our life experiences. Her incredible ability to reimagine and redfine is present in her recent cover of Doja Cat’s “Kiss Me More” for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge.
