After debuting the song live at Tramlines Festival last month, Humberstone has given the track an official release.

She says of the song (which was co-written with Matty Healy), "The song is about wanting someone to stay so badly, even if only for five more minutes, because you know how much it’ll hurt when they leave. I think the desperation in the words really sums up how I was feeling at the time and how so many people must’ve been feeling last year when we were all completely starved of human connection! I often write songs with a bit of a visual in my head, and I kept picturing solitary places, like drifting far out to sea, so far that you can’t find a way back, or old deserted cargo shipping yards with all the lights at the edge of the city."

The Walls Are Way Too Thin will follow Humberstone's 2020 debut EP Falling Asleep At The Wheel, and will feature previous singles "The Walls Are Way Too Thin" and "Haunted House".

Humberstone adds of the EP, "This EP represents a feeling of being lost. It’s the kind of lost that makes you question who you are and where you belong. So lost that someone might need to find you again because you can’t find yourself. That’s how it felt to move to Liverpool, then London, and be in transit between cities and never settling."
