There’s no place like home for Holly Humberstone with her new single, ‘Haunted House’

Holly Humberstone has released a brand new track, ‘Haunted House’.

Written about the home she grew up in, she explains: “The house is such a huge part of who I am and our family. With my sisters and I moving out and living separate lives, coming home feels very comforting and one of the only things keeping us all connected. The house is almost falling down around us now though, and we’ve realised that pretty soon we’ll be forced to leave. There’s a cellar full of meat hooks and a climate so damp mushrooms grow out of the walls. Loads of people have probably died here in the past but I’ve always felt really safe. It’s like a seventh family member. It’s part of me.”

It’s the first new material of 2021 for the Dork Hype List star, who finished runner up in this year’s critic led BBC Sound of 2021 poll. We already know there’s a new EP on the way, after news leaked of a brand new collaboration with The 1975’s Matty Healy, ‘Please Don’t Leave Just Yet’.

This all comes ahead of a series of live shows this summer, including four sold-out dates at London’s Omeara venue this June.
