“Scarlett (Garden Version)” by Holly Humberstone

Holly Humberstone has shared “Scarlett (Garden Version)”. The track serves as a brand new adaptation of the beloved original that was first released last year about Holly’s friend Scarlett being in a toxic relationship. One of tracks off her second EP. Touring around the world has given each song new life, but one thing has remained the same; Holly’s ability to strip back songs to their bare beauty and perform them solo with her guitar. Following the stunning original “Vanilla (Stairwell Version)” filmed in her haunted family home, the accompanying video released today finds Holly in her new home that she shares with her sisters in London, alluding to a new chapter for both herself and these songs. The song was Co-written with the 1975’s Matty Healy and longtime collaborator Rob Milton, and during her support tours with Olivia Rodrigo and Girl In Red.

“When I first started releasing music I wanted people to be able to see where I created the songs and where the stories had come from.” Holly says. “My ‘Vanilla (Stairwell version)’ was created, filmed and recorded on my stairwell at home; the place that inspired the first EP. As things progress it’s really important to me to keep allowing you into my world, so I’ve made a new version of ‘Scarlett’ – my (garden version). This is a special corner of where I live now, a place I spend time with my sisters and friends. Considering this song is about my best friend it just made sense to me to be in this spot.”

“Touring my songs around the world this year has given them each a new life, and my love for them has grown in ways I couldn’t imagine,” she continues. “‘Scarlett’ was written about my best friend and a boy who wasn’t treating her right. It crushed me to see her go through that shit, but it’s been so amazing to watch people around the world relate to this song and scream the lyrics while standing next to their best friends. I hope you love the garden version of my fave song to sing live right now.”
