Holly Humberstone: Future Arena Act? Fab New Single ‘Scarlett’…



Over the past few weeks, UK artist Holly Humberstone has played four sold out London headline shows and lit up festival stages from Reading & Leeds to All Points East, and now drops a fabulous new single and video.

The Grantham-based artist releases “Scarlett”, from her highly anticipated second EP, “The Walls Are Way Too Thin,” due on 5th November on Darkroom/Interscope/Polydor Records.

The single was produced by long-time collaborator Rob Milton and written for her best friend Scarlett, about a toxic relationship. Through late night conversations and the power of female friendship, Holly helped Scarlett through the breakup.

The official video shows Holly and Scarlett stealing a truck from an airport hanger and driving off into the sunset, “free.”

Recently nominated for the Ivor Novello Rising Star award with Apple Music, the six-track EP includes brand new song “Please Don’t Leave Just Yet”, a collaboration with Matty Healy, frontman of one of Holly’s favourite bands The 1975.

“The Walls Are Way Too Thin” follows Holly’s critically acclaimed debut Falling Asleep At The Wheel which helped her notch up more than 150M global streams to-date. Holly was named the BBC Sound of 2021, and internationally heralded by the likes of Jimmy Kimmel, James Corden and Billboard.

Holly has also set up the “Fifth Sister Swap” initiative, as a way for her and her fans to swap clothes without relying on fast fashion.

At Holly’s Omeara show in London, she hosted the first ever Swap Shop out the back of her dad’s car, where fans queued for 2-hours to swap their clothes with Holly. It’s an idea that stemmed from her three sisters constantly borrowing from and swapping their own wardrobes.

Her star is very much on the ascent internationally, having sold out The Bowery Ballroom in New York and Roxy Theatre in L.A. in just three minutes. She kicked off a new tour today (10th Sept) and will cover the UK, Ireland, Germany, Spain and the US. (Dates below….)
