When he took to X on Monday (Feb. 26), Noah Kahan kindled a small ounce of hope within us all.

“Someday imma make Cape Elizabeth 2,” he shared plainly on the social media platform, seeming to promise fans a sequel to his popular 2020 EP.

His devotees ran to comment, sharing their elation and throwing in suggestions for the potential follow-up. Together, fans and Kahan discussed the pandemic-fueled release and weighed in on all the things a Cape Elizabeth 2 could hold.

“That EP was everything,” one user wrote in the thread, with the artist responding, “I think it saved my life.”

“Better include a bridge as good as [‘glue myself shut’],” another fan suggested. To that, Kahan quipped, “Unlikely.”

“What is stopping you from making it now,” someone else urged. “My brain,” the songwriter answered.

In the thread, he ponders the success of an album offering like ‘Maine’. “It’s so hit or miss,” he wrote, “like sometimes I play 'Maine' and people are like 'Woooooo' and then sometimes I start the song and people go to buy a drink.”

The artist’s Cape Elizabeth came just before his breakthrough with the 2022 release of Stick Season. The 5-song EP was recorded over the course of one week in the artist’s home state of Vermont, having fled New York City because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

On his website, he shared of the moment and its resulting creation: “Returning to my parent’s farm home in a town of 1100 people from a three-bedroom apartment in a city 8.3 million felt like I was returning to some part of me I had left behind, a reunion with that obnoxious, ambitious, and totally terrified teenager with some folk songs and an acoustic guitar who first took off for Showbusiness™ in 2015… I wanted to do justice to this experience, and create something that felt like who I used to be.”

When and whether or not a Cape Elizabeth 2 will actually happen is unknown, but for now, let’s just put on the EP and turn it up.
