Rex Orange County has shared another new track from his forthcoming album ‘WHO CARES?’, set for release on 11th March.
The new cut, ‘AMAZING’, follows up on lead single ‘KEEP IT UP’, and follows up on the announcement of a North American tour.
‘WHAT’S UP?’ is the first new release since 2020’s Live at Radio City Music Hall EP taken from Rex’s two sold-out shows at the venue in 2020, just before his international Pony tour was cut short in Berlin due to Covid-19. After spending the bulk of 2020 quarantined back home in the UK, Rex made the trek to Amsterdam that autumn to record with Benny Sings, with whom he made 2017’s ‘Loving Is Easy’.
A productive 48-hour session prompted a follow-up trip, with the subsequent 10 days of work producing the new album. The record also features Tyler, The Creator, who contributes a verse to ‘OPEN A WINDOW’ – the first time the two have collaborated since Tyler’s 2017 album ‘Flower Boy’.
Rex Orange County is also going to play a huge London show later this year as part of a short UK and Ireland run.
The show will take place at Gunnersbury Park on 13th August, coming after shows in manchester, Dublin and Glasgow.
The dates read:
07 Manchester, Castlefield Bowl
15 Dublin, Iveagh Gardens
02 Glasgow, SWG3 Galvanizers Yard
13 London, Gunnersbury Park
