BRIT winning and Ivor Novello nominated singer songwriter Holly Humberstone announces her biggest UK and European tour to date, headlining 20 venues in Spring 2024, including The Albert Hall in Manchester on 8 March and London’s Eventim Apollo on 13 March 2024. From selling out her LA headline show at The Fonda Theatre to storming the stages at Lollapalooza in Chicago to Summersonic in Japan and debuting on the mainstage at Reading & Leeds in the UK, Holly’s consistent live experiences capture the heart of her raw songwriting.

Next week the 23-year-old artist will play a run of intimate live shows in partnership with independent record stores across the UK. In celebration of the release of her debut album, Paint my Bedroom Black on 13 October, the dates will be the only chance to catch Holly live in the UK before her headline tour next year. The run of sold-out in-stores include a special hometown date at Nottingham’s Rough Trade, a short distance from Grantham where Holly grew up, as well as two sold-out Rough Trade East’s. Tickets for Holly’s headline Spring tour are on pre-sale now, and go on general sale on 6 October at 10am BST.


Holly Humberstone has become one of the most important British female artists of her generation. Getting ready to release her immaculate debut album Paint My Bedroom Black on 13 October 2023 (Friday 13th!), the record was written with longtime collaborator Rob Milton during pockets of time touring the globe last year. Holly’s time on the road was lonely as well as liberating, with most days watching friends and family through her phone, while living a “Truman Show-like” existence. “I took ages to write it because I wanted to love them all,” says Holly.

Last week, the 23-year-old revealed Hottest Record “Into Your Room”, the fourth single to be lifted from Paint My Bedroom Black, already being playlisted at BBC Radio 1 and Tune Of The Week. The song was written in California, when Rob Milton flew over and the two of them hit up Ethan Gruska (producer for Phoebe Bridgers and Fiona Apple). From Ethan’s small studio outside of LA, they experimented with pawn shop-bought instruments and synths, and wrote “Into Your Room” in one day. It captures Holly’s guilt from not being present in her new relationship, a track that is dappled in dream alt-pop, and reflects the album’s expansive sonic moments that sound like hurtling down a West Coast Highway: “You’re the centre of this universe/my sorry ass revolves around you”.
