Holly Humberstone has returned with a new song called ‘Haunted House’. It marks her first new music since last year’s Falling Asleep At The Wheel EP and is the first single from her forthcoming second EP. Check it out below, alongside an accompanying video.
“I wrote this song about the old and characterful house I grew up in,” Humberstone said of the new song in a statement. “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.”
Earlier this year, Humberstone performed ‘Falling Asleep At The Wheel’ on The Late Late Show with James Corden, where she also confirmed an upcoming collaboration with the 1975’s Matt Healy.
