Toronto-via-Nova Scotia songwriter Rachel Bobbitt has announced plans for her second EP, following last year's The Ceiling Could Collapse, which earned the artist a spot on Exclaim!'s 25 Best Songs of 2022. The Half We Still Have will arrive on August 4 via Fantasy Records.

The EP — said to explore everything from "power dynamics to a betrayal by a loved one" — was produced by Jorge Elbrecht at 80A Studios in Toronto, and finds Bobbitt joined by Justice Der (guitar/e-bow), Stephen Bennett (drums/percussion), Isaac Teague (bass), Sam Laramee (synth) and Alex George (strings).

"I wanted these songs to reflect the intense dynamics that take shape in relationships," Bobbitt says. "I've found in some relationships, you give and give, only to eventually lose yourself in the process. In those moments where we feel abandoned and hollow, a small sliver remains intact, preserved, and personal."

Today, the singer-songwriter shares the record's lead track, "Two Bit," which arrives with its own music video. Bobbitt said of the song, "I wrote 'Two Bit' looking back on moments as a teenager where I ignored my gut because of the all-consuming feeling of a young relationship."

Check that out below, where you'll also find the EP's tracklist.

The Half We Still Have:
