When one door closes, another opens. We know this to be true, but it doesn't make endings any easier. Canadian producer Robotaki recently said goodbye to a long-term relationship. On "Together We're Screwed," one of the poppier singles from his stand-out EP Science, one hears a heart that still can't let go, but on Robotaki's latest single "All I Can Do," all that finality of emotion finally reaches its conclusion. 

"'All I Can Do' is a song I wrote about finally coming to terms with the end of a relationship and saying goodbye to a part of myself that kept holding on to the past," Robotaki is quoted in a press release. "Sometimes you get so attached to the way you were with someone that when it’s suddenly over, you start asking questions that ultimately don’t have answers, or at least the ones that you’re looking for. Sometimes, all you can do is move on."

Gone is the bouncy step as Robotaki falls deep into a dreamy haze. It's luxurious, languid and sweetly psychedelic. It's not morose, but it's certainly lost in its own world. "All I Can Do" takes life one moment at a time, finding the strength to move forward despite the pull toward the past. Robotaki is doing the same thing, releasing this song as his debut on ODESZA's Foreign Family Collective, as well as the lead single in announcement of his next EP, Anachronism.

Anachronism is scheduled for full release Friday, March 22. Robotaki will then be on the road with Big Wild and Mild Minds, bringing his live performance to stages across California to Chicago, Detroit, New York and more. He'll also join San Holo on tour in April, and ODESZA at Camp Nowhere festival in June. Check his full list of dates in March below, and listen to "All I Can Do" a day ahead of its Friday, Feb. 1, release, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
