Rising UK-based singer-songwriter Holly Humberstone has shown no signs of slowing down, sharing her new single London Is Lonely. The track arrives months after the release of the singers sophomore EP, The Walls Are Way Too Thin.

Laced with vivid story telling lyricism, and Humberstone's distinctive mesmerising vocals, the track and captures the loneliness and isolation that can follow when moving to a new city, longing to be reunited with a past flame. London Is Lonely is another shining moment from Humberstone, further showcasing the singers undeniable talent and skilful songwriting abilities.

Speaking of the track, Humberstone shares: 'I wrote London Is Lonely back in February 2020 right before the pandemic hit here in the UK. I had just moved out of my childhood home down to London and had spent the past few months feeling really trapped and alone in my tiny flat with strangers. London felt so intense and although there were so many people around me, I felt even more isolated and like I didn’t belong. I kind of lost myself in the city. I didn’t exactly know who I was anymore, and so going home and writing felt like my safe space to process everything. It’s funny now listening to the song almost two years on, post-pandemic, and feeling like nothing much has changed at all. I’m still trying to find my place here and make it my home and so it felt right to put this song out into the world right now, when so many other people are probably feeling lost right now too.'

The singer made her debut in 2020 with her EP Falling Asleep At The Wheel, a poised and graceful release that presented a maturity that many of her pop predecessors worked away at for years before achieving. Having been named the BRIT Rising Star of 2022, Humberstone is set to perform her biggest shows yet, supporting Olivia Rodrigo on her mammoth North American tour.
