The second album released by Cher in 1973 was Half-Breed. After the failure of the previous pop-standard style album, Bittersweet White Light, Cher permanently abandoned her husband Sonny Bono as a producer for her albums. Snuff Garrett returned to work with Cher after the success of Cher and the minor hit Foxy Lady, recording another narrative ballad album.[3]

The opening track of the album is the cover of the hit song written by Paul and Linda McCartney, "My Love", that was released in March 1973.[3] The album contains two other covers: the Bee-Gees' "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart", and The Beatles' "The Long and Winding Road".[3][4] All the songs that Cher covered in the album were originally number-one hits by the original artists on the US "Billboard 200" in the early 1970s.

David Paich contributed on "David's Song" and for the arrangements in the album. The last song of the album, "Chastity Sun", was re-written by Cher.[3][4] Originally entitled "Ruby Jean & Billy Lee", it was a song by soft rock band Seals and Crofts released in their 1973 album Diamond Girl. The re-written version by Cher was a dedication to her first child, Chaz Bono.[4]

In August 1993, the original album was combined with Dark Lady and issued on one CD. Called Half Breed/Dark Lady, this release included all the tracks from both original albums. In contrast, several budget CDs have also been released titled Half Breed (note the lack of hyphen) by various labels. These albums use different covers, and contain only two tracks from the original album alongside selected tracks from other Cher albums, including CherFoxy Lady, and Dark Lady. The original Half-Breed album in its entirety remains unreleased on compact disc.
