Get hip to these plugged-in pop players.

Allie X clearly has the X factor, from her name to her philosophy on music to her upcoming debut release (which she’s offering up through, we’re guessing, her own label, called simply Label X).

The Canadian singer first sailed onto our radar in early February last year when she released her brilliant synth gem “Catch.” Nearly 12 months later, Allie has announced her debut release CollXtion I — it’s not quite an album, nor is it being labeled an EP. She’s also finally whipped together a video for “Catch.”

CollXtion I is set for an April 7 release, and is described in press materials as “a full multimedia Xperience centered around seven songs. It is the first in a series of CollXtions to be issued in the coming months. CollXtion I will allow participants to gather songs, videos, digital installations, and other media that begin to fashion the world of a protagonist known as ‘X’.”

If that doesn’t quite paint a clear picture for you, just know that there will also be GIFs of Allie spinning around and a comic that factor into this whole thing.

None of this surprises us, though — when we interviewed Allie last year, some of her answers to our questions were in GIF form. And that kind of made us a bit Xstatic, if we’re to be completely honest.
