Holly Humberstone has shared a new song titled "Can You Afford To Lose Me?", which is also the title-track of a new project featuring tracks from her first two EPs.

"Can You Afford To Lose Me?" is the opening song on Humberstone's new song collection, which also features songs from her debut EP Falling Asleep At The Wheel and her second EP The Walls Are Way Too Thin.

"The past couple of years have been a whirlwind and I rarely get the chance to reflect on everything that’s happened," Humberstone explains. "Over the past few months I’ve been looking back; at the music I’ve made, the people I’ve met, the incredible experiences we’ve shared together and where I’m heading on a personal level. Playing my songs on tour, seeing them out in the world, and how they’ve affected people differently has made me want to give them another life so much I’ve put them together in the order I would listen to them in now - a fresh evolution of my first two EPs. I’ve also added a brand new song called "Can You Afford To Lose Me?" which is probably one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written. I feel like I've changed quite a lot since releasing some of my tracks, so I decided not to include a couple of them - while I’ll always love those songs, I wanted to highlight the ones that resonate the most with where I'm at in my life in this moment. I hope you guys can listen to these songs in new ways, just like I have."

She adds, "I guess this is me closing the chapter on the first part of my journey. I’m writing my debut album as we speak and it’s going to come next year. It's my most personal music yet and I hope I can continue to document my experiences for them to become yours."

Holly Humberstone's "Can You Afford To Lose Me?" track and collection of songs are both out now.
