“London Is Lonely” is out via Polydor Records: Stream

Moving to a new city can take a massive leap of faith, and while it can be a rewarding experience, there are also moments (especially during the pandemic) where one might feel alone or distant from the people you love. Breakout singer-songwriter Holly Humberstone has captured these feelings perfectly on her new single, “London Is Lonely,” a fantastic release reflecting on the rising star’s emotions after her big move to the city.

Produced by long-time collaborator Rob Milton, the track is Humberstone’s first release following her sophomore EP, The Walls Are Way Too Thin, and arrives as she kicks off a stellar 2022. In addition to being confirmed as a featured performer at Coachella on April 16th and April 23rd, 2022, the 22-year-old artist was also recently named The BRITs Rising Star of 2022, following in the footsteps of global superstars including Adele, Florence + The Machine, Sam Fender and Griff.

“I wrote ‘London Is Lonely’ back in February 2020 right before the pandemic hit here in the UK,” shares Holly. “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.”

Humberstone’s selection as this year’s Brit Rising Star follows colossal news the singer-songwriter will be a special supporting guest on an upcoming leg of Olivia Rodrigo’s highly anticipated 2022 “SOUR Tour.” The tour dates are set to kick off right after Humberstone’s debut full-length US tour supporting girl in red this spring. Tickets for Humberstone’s shows with Rodrigo and girl in red are on-sale now, and a complete list of tour dates can be found below or via her website here.
