Allie X Offers “Old Habits Die Hard” As Free Download: Listen To The New Synth-Pop Song

If you’ve been wondering what Allie X‘s new, post-CollXtion I music would sound like, today brings a hint of an answer. The Los-Angeles-by-way-of-Canada synth-pop siren has premiered brand new track “Old Habits Die Hard” as a celebration of a string of six tour North American tour dates with friend and collaborator Troye Sivan.

Stylistically, “Old Habits Die Hard” finds Allie still dealing in immediately catchy pop with an irresistible, larger than life chorus. And, good news — it’s a free download that you can grab here.

Allie explained the song in her own words via a press release: “‘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.”
