Must-listen: Holly Humberstone's new song 'London Is Lonely'.

Following her excellent sophomore EP, 'The Walls Are Way Too Thin', last year, Holly Humberstone has today shared another heartfelt number, 'London Is Lonely'.

About her new song, Humberstone says: "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."
