Holly Humbestone Announces ‘Work in Progress’ EP, Shares New Single ‘Dive’

    Holly Humberstone has shared the details of her Work in Progress EP, along with a new single called ‘Dive’. Following her 2023 debut album Paint My Bedroom Black, the four-track collection was written in 2022 with longtime collaborator Rob Milton and songwriter Ben Leftwich, and it features a new collaboration with Flyte’s Will Taylor and producer Andrew Sarlo. Listen to ‘Dive’ below.

    “Every song starts as a work in progress. Some stay as demos and ideas, others find new life with more production. But these songs were demos I couldn’t leave behind,” Humberstone said in a statement. “I went back through the archives and discovered these lost older versions of myself mixed up with the present version of me. I wanted to release them this year – as I start touring again and since the release of my debut album – as a work in progress for my fans. I’m very much a work in progress, and I think this body of work feels impulsive and more like a stream of consciousness to me.”

    “‘Dive’ is the first song I’m dropping today,” she continued. “I wrote it a few years ago as a kind of warning to a guy to not get involved with me. I was worried I’d hurt him. Whenever I think about the highs and lows of past and present relationships, it reminds me that life will always be evolving and changing in ways that I can’t predict, and I think that’s ok!”

    In December, Humberstone teamed up with MUNA for a new version of ‘Into Your Room’. More recently, she joined Del Water Gap on ‘Cigarettes & Wine’.

    1. Dive
