Pop siren ALLIE X returns today (September 21) with “LITTLE THINGS,” a new single from her SUPER SUNSET project.
At its simplest “Little Things” is just about the monotony and says X“…madness one feels sitting on the same couch in their apartment for four years.” She adds, “I always have the camera, my mind, on a macro zoom, so focused on meaningless details that, close up, look so wrong. I can’t go on this way for the rest of my life. In this song, I’m crying out for someone or something to give me a different perspective.”
The track follows other X releases from SUPER SUNSET including “Focus,” “Not So Bad In LA” and “Science.”

Arriving on October 29, SUPER SUNSET was tapped by Billboard as one of ’40 Most Anticipated Albums’ for this fall. It’s the follow-up to ALLIE X‘ 2017 album CollXtion II. Born Alexandra Hughes, the Toronto native who now calls Los Angeles home emerged on the scene as something of a mystery and ever since has been peeling back the layers, revealing more about herself. The singer/songwriter’s first two projects CollXtion I (2015) & CollXtion II were critically lauded, supercharged pop records that explored the world of X–a place that provides a sanctuary for those unresolved fragments of self, those parts of you that still don’t feel whole or fulfilled. X is the possibility of anything, an identity you can take on while you find your truth. “I’m not an obvious pick,” she says of her rising star thus far. “I’ve always had to find hidden roads to be understood.” Along the way, she has garnered the support from fellow female musical outsiders as Katy Perry, Grimes and Tove Lo as well with her passionate LGBTQ-identifying fans.
