Hear Allie X and Mitski Come Together on “Susie Save Your Love”

Canadian singer-songwriter with pop leanings Allie X released her album Cape God today, Feb. 21, featuring a collaboration with the indie-rock icon Mitski on the track “Susie Save Your Love.”

The track leans on drum and bass, with plenty of synth and a distinct pop leaning, despite the depressing lyrics about a woman named Susie and her inability to find reciprocated love. Allie X and Mitski’s vocals are almost too perfect of a match, but it makes for a solid track for dancing in your bedroom—whether you’re untroubled or forlorn.

While Mitski’s last album was 2018’s Be The Cowboy, a lovingly composed electro-pop album that featured the cultural resets “Nobody” and “Geyser,” she has still been working on music since. She penned the fast-paced, distorted single “Cop Car” for the horror film The Turning, which came out back in January.

In a July 2018 interview with Pitchfork, Mitski hinted at pursuing more collaborations in the future, especially because touring behind her own projects has been such a drain on her mental health: “I’m just trying to plant as many seeds of investment as possible,” she told the outlet. “I’m also looking ahead 10 or 15 years from now, when I maybe don’t want to tour as much.”

You can listen to “Susie Save Your Love” below, along with Mitski’s 2015 Daytrotter session, and stream Allie X’s album Cape God here. Check out Allie X’s upcoming tour dates further down, along with the album art for Cape God.
