CollXtion II Unsolved is no more… Allie X has finally set the date for her upcoming sophomore album CollXtion II!
The 10-track LP, including the previously released “Old Habits Die Hard” and “That’s So Us,” will be made available everywhere on June 9 – yes that sounds far, but it’ll be here faster than you think. “I have put my tears, guts and memories into this body of work,” Allie said in a statement. “Don’t worry bb’s – June may seem far away, but you’re going to be hearing MANY new songs well before then.”
Once you’ve pre-ordered the album (Xclusively on her official website), you’ll instantly receive grat track “Casanova,” which was previously released as a stripped-down demo as part of the CollXtion II Unsolved project that allowed fans to provide input on working songs. “You might be familiar with the piano demo of this one,” Allie added. “Now it’s fully produced and an Xclusive gift to you.”
A gift it is! The revamped version of “Casanova” is all sorts of House-y dance-pop greatness. “Casanova fucked me over/ Left me dying for your love/ Casanova, casanova/ Now you’re all I’m thinking of,” she sings on-top of the hypnotic bass line. Far cry from the stripped-back demo, the newly refreshed “Casanova” offers a welcomed versatility to Allie‘s catalogue. I LIVE!
