Following a pretty good year that saw her put out her debut extended EP CollXtion I, Toronto-raised electropop chanteuse Allie X is now getting ready to embark on a six date tour of the North America with her good pal Troye Sivan.
Ahead of the live shows, dates for which you can grab at the foot of this post, she’s just dropped a free download of a new song called Old Habits Die Hard as a treat for her fans, and in a press release Allie xplains what the synthpop gem is about:
“Old Habits Die Hard is an xpression of this action: laughing at your own weakness as it seduces you one more time. It’s a cruel reality when you believe you’ve overcome an addiction, just to find that it still has you by the throat. I tried to keep the language of the lyric conversational, because ‘old habits die hard’, the saying itself, has a jest in it’s undertone (like so many idioms do) that seems to justify/celebrate that self destructive moment when you just…give up.”
The track is available to download from the Canadian singer and producer’s Soundcloud page. Check it out below.
