Holly Humberstone has released her new track “Drop Dead” which is part of her anticipated debut EP Falling Asleep At The Wheel out this Friday, August 14 via Platoon.
Driven by her commanding voice, melancholic piano, and a beat that thumps and builds its way to a powerfully cathartic finale, the track examines the relationships in our lives that we recognize are toxic, and yet can’t stay away from. Produced by Rob Milton (Easy Life) and crafted mostly at home in the old, withering country house that Holly grew up in, the EP features six songs including her heralded trio of debut singles “Deep End,” “Falling Asleep At The Wheel,” and “Overkill.”
“I wrote Drop Dead about a troubled & manipulative relationship that despite how bad it is, you can’t get out, because love can often be blinding,” says Humberstone. “I think a lot of people have been through something where you’re with someone that was no good and for some reason all they have to do is look at you and you go straight back.”
Humberstone will make her national television debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight where she’ll be performing “Overkill” and “Falling Asleep At The Wheel.”
She recently performed “Overkill” and “Falling Asleep At The Wheel” for Vevo’s DSCVR At Home series, an intimate live performance program that spotlights emerging talent shaping the future of music. With a performance at Glastonbury 2019 and an extended European support tour alongside Lewis Capaldi already under her belt, she’s currently gearing up for a guest appearance at Sam Fender’s Platform Show in Newcastle on August 13th as well as her pair of upcoming sold-out headlining shows at Omeara.
“Drop Dead” is now available on music streaming platforms.
