It’s addictive pop — REDEFINED! That’s how one could describe Cassie Steele‘s brand-new EP, Patterns. Yes, the 24-year-old, who you probably recognize best from Degrassi: The Next Generation, went back to the music studio five years after Destructo Doll and NINE years post-How Much for Happy, and she’s about to blow. Your. Minds.

With Patterns tapped for release on August 12, we felt it was the perfect time to reintroduce you to the beauty. Here are ten things you need to know about Cassie Steele:

SO excited for your Patterns EP. What's your favorite song from it? (You know you have one.) What's it about?

"So glad to hear that! Yeah, I definitely have a favorite... Although it's changing all the time, right now I think 'Sick' is my current. 'Sick' is a good humored tale about all the terrors your mind can create with over analyzing. I think with how accessible someone's information is through the Internet and social media, becoming obsessed or infatuated with someone to an unhealthy degree is all too easy. It's like... every other day, someone new is in danger by my love."

'Mad' was awesome, BTW, so we can only imagine how great your 'Games' music video is going to be. Care to spill the details? About the track itself, the footage, anything!

"'Games' is a really fun song... written out of dominant-hungry energy. I guess some aspirations can become dangerous depending on how you go about them and this is kind of a play off that. It's a creep show... Boo."

Music isn't the only project you have in the works. What can you tell us about The Dorm?

"The Dorm is an MTV movie; I'm so stoked about it because it's one of the only roles I did NOT play a struggling actress. But most of all because it's a kick-ass psycho-bitch-filled thriller comparable to The Craft, Jennifer's Body or Rosemary's Baby. I had so much fun working on this project. I think it'll get me lots of booty."

You filmed it with Alexis Knapp, so we just have to ask: Did you see Pitch Perfect? What'd you think? Anything fun you can spill from behind the scenes?

"Pitch Perfect was hilarious, and just as expected, Alexis was as well. The entire cast and crew [were] amazing to work with and it was hard not to laugh during some scenes, we were having such a good time. In the end, I think we pulled it together."

Of course we can't let you get away without throwing it back to your Degrassi days. Do you still keep up with anyone from the cast?

"SERIOUSLY?! Ha, kidding. Miriam [McDonald] is still one of my bestest friends, although I don't get to see her as often as I like living in a different country. Shenae [Grimes] is still a good friend and actually directed the music video for 'Mad.'"

We couldn't help but notice that you're, like, the funniest person on Twitter. What are some of your favorite accounts to follow on the social media site?

"Are you sure you're looking at my Twitter? I really love Vice mag (@VICE). They always have interesting and hilarious stuff coming through the feed. I always have a giggle and nod at Louis Peitzman's (@louispeitzman) spot-on relatable tweets; [he's] the senior editor at BuzzFeed. And recently I started following @BJcavillo, who I discovered through Vine... I get a good chuckle out of his sawdust-dry wit and sarcasm."

On a more general note, what's your go-to karaoke song at the moment?

"I always try to remember when I hear a song, 'REMEMBER THIS ONE FOR KARAOKE!' Then karaoke happens and I forget. Then end up singing 'Lovefool' by The Cardigans."

Do you remember the first time you saw yourself on the big screen or on TV? What was that experience like?

"I was like, 'Why is my skin so oily?' The experience was mortifying and it hasn't really gotten better since. The experience and also my skin."

Finish this sentence: 'Cassie Steele is __________.'

"...kind of hungry."

Is there anything that we didn't ask your fans absolutely NEED to know about you but probably don't?

"I really like BBQ and you shouldn't bring me anywhere where people are."
