Holly Humberstone – Superbloodmoon (feat. d4vd)

Rising British talent Holly Humberstone is gearing up for the release of her long-awaited debut album, Paint My Bedroom Black. Scheduled for an October 13 release, the 23-year-old dropped the third single, “Superbloodmoon,” on July 28, which features US singer-songwriter d4vd. And with a back catalog stacked with strong material such as “Scarlett,” “The Walls Are Way Too Thin,” and “Falling Asleep At The Wheel,” this song already stands out as one of her best.

“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,” Humberstone explained in her press release.

“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,” she continued.

d4vd said, “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.”

He added, “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.”

The track was accompanied by a visualizer in which both artists feature in. During the chorus, the pair both sing, “We can take a flight, drive a car or we could slow it down / It’s a desperate kind of love that I’m missing / So, can we strip down to our vitals? / I’m obsessed with your design / And I’ve missed your soul forever,” over the top of the soft, rock production.

“Superbloodmoon” follows Humberstone’s first two releases, “Room Service” and “Antichrist,” from the Paint My Bedroom Black era.

Next month, ahead of the album release, Humberstone will perform at Reading and Leeds Festival.
