"Halogen 2" follows on from last month's lead single "Ordinary Talk", and arrives with a visual directed by Kenna Hyne.

Half Waif, aka Nandi Rose, says of the new offering, ""Halogen 2" is a song about isolation and the search for strength. The halogens are some of the most reactive elements on the periodic table, and in this song, winter and a life alone in the country are like halogen: an unrelenting force that produces change. I wrote this song at home in Upstate New York last March at a time when my sense of isolation was at its height. And yet I've always been someone who loves my alone time, so there was a sense of shame that I couldn't handle it this time. I needed to tell myself and anyone witnessing my restlessness: 'Don't misunderstand, I do what I must.'"

The Caretaker is Half Waif's first album since signing to ANTI-, and will follow on from 2018's Lavender.

Discussing her new album title, Rose explains, "I kind of created a character. She's someone who has been entrusted with taking care of this estate, taking care of the land, and she's not doing a very good job. The weeds are growing everywhere, and she's not taking care of herself."

"Halogen 2" is out now. Half Waif's The Caretaker album arrives via ANTI- Records on 27 March, and is available to pre-order now.
