Check out Holly Humberstone’s emotional new single, ‘London Is Lonely’

Written just before the pandemic hit the UK, it's about the isolation of big city life.

Holly Humberstone has dropped a brand new single, ‘London Is Lonely’.

“I wrote London Is Lonely back in February 2020 right before the pandemic hit here in the UK,” the former Dork cover star explains. “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 track comes hot on the heels of the announcement that Holly will take home the BRITs Rising Star award at the 2022 ceremony, and follows up on last year’s second EP ‘The Walls Are Way Too Thin’.
