Holly Humberstone releases her blistering new single “Sleep Tight,” via Darkroom/Interscope/Polydor Records. Co-written with the 1975’s Matty Healy and longtime collaborator Rob Milton, the BRITs Rising Star wrote about how to navigate the blurred lines between friendship and romance and the risk that comes with that. “Sleep Tight” is the singer-songwriter’s second collaboration with Healy, following “Please Don’t Leave Just Yet,” taken from her critically acclaimed second EP The Walls Are Way Too Thin.
“It’s awkward trying to navigate catching feelings for a friend, as they are often feelings we might have been suppressing for some time. When they float to the surface, you have to weigh up the risks of getting hurt and potentially losing them in your life. I wrote ‘Sleep Tight’ about the uncertainty of friendships evolving into something more. The first summer out of lockdown was pretty crazy for my friends and I because we finally had our freedom back and acted like we had nothing to lose. This song takes me back to that time of what felt like no consequences and impending heartbreak”– Holly Humberstone
Holly performed the song at her outstanding debut Coachella performance on both April 16th and 23rd, as well as on her support tour with Girl In Red across the US. This week she hit the road once again to join fellow BRIT Award and Grammy Award winning artist Olivia Rodrigo on her US tour, kicking it off with two sold out shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York.
Winning the prestigious BRITs Rising Star earlier this year, Holly gave a captivating performance of the heartbreak ballad “London Is Lonely” live at the awards show, which was the very first time she has ever stepped foot into the O2 Arena. Following in the footsteps of global superstars including Adele, Florence + The Machine, Sam Fender and Griff, Holly’s Rising Star was only the beginning of a colossal year for the 22-year-old. Having just been nominated for Best Song Musically and Lyrically at this year’s Ivor Novello’s for “Haunted House,” alongside Adele, Ed Sheeran and Dave, Holly is a standout songwriter and artist whose lyrics and melodies transform painful human experience into collective joy. Most recently, she has also leant her inimitable vocals to BRIT Winner Sam Fender’s smash hit “Seventeen Going Under,” and has also covered Doja Cat’s “Kiss Me More” for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge and Prince’s legendary “I Would Die 4 U,” which shows her incredible ability to reimagine and redefine.
