Lifted from her personal iPhone notes: “Superbloodmoon in the sky, can you see it from where you are?”, Holly Humberstone today releases “Superbloodmoon” featuring d4vd, the third song taken from her highly anticipated debut album Paint My Bedroom Black, out on 13 October 2023.
A Super blood moon is when the Earth’s moon is in a total lunar eclipse and the sky becomes red, and Holly loved the idea of how rare it was. She met billion streaming American singer and songwriter d4vd in London at longtime collaborator Rob Milton’s studio, and they both wrote the song in a few hours, imagining two people staring at the rare lunar eclipse from opposite sides of the world. Always inspired by her environment and how that affects her sense of self and identity, from her parent’s Haunted House to flatshares in London with The Walls Are Way To Thin, “Superbloodmoon” reflects the landscape surrounding Holly, travelling the world, taking a flight last year on tour and trying to find an anchoring and missing loved ones.

“Holly and I met in London and wrote this song in just a few hours. It was really effortless and special. We both loved the idea of a Superbloodmoon and two people witnessing the same thing no matter where they are in the world. We also got to perform it together at my show in London a couple months ago, which was the first time I’ve ever gotten to collab with someone onstage like that and it was really fun. I’m very grateful to Holly for having me on this song.” – d4vd
“I had been a huge fan of d4vd’s work for about a year and was lucky enough to catch him whilst he was in London. We went into the studio and wrote Superbloodmoon. It came pretty naturally as we had both been touring for what seemed like forever, and wanted to write about the feelings that come with leaving your home and the people you love behind. I had the title for the song on my notes, and it just stemmed from there. We wrote about witnessing the same thing from opposite sides of the world and feeling lonely but connected through that experience at the same time. I love the song and I’m so grateful to d4vd for bringing it to life with me.” – Holly Humberstone
