Super Sunset is the fourth extended play (EP) by Canadian singer and songwriter Alexandra Hughes, known professionally as Allie X. It was released on October 29, 2018, by Twin Music.[6] The EP follows the release of her debut studio album CollXtion II (2017), and was inspired by Hughes' tumultuous experiences since moving to Los Angeles.[7] The concept was illustrated by three archetypes: "Sci-Fi Girl", the "Hollywood Starlet", and the "Nun".[8]

Singles[edit]

Five of the eight songs featured on Super Sunset were released as singles; Hughes explained that she "felt a very close connection to each song" and wanted them "to have their own moments."[8]
