Rex Orange County has dropped his new album ‘WHO CARES?’.
Out today (11th March 2022), the album features the already released singles ‘KEEP IT UP’, ‘AMAZING’ and ‘OPEN A WINDOW’, featuring Tyler, The Creator.
It’s 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 will see Rex play a handful of UK and Ireland shows over the summer, including London’s Gunnersbury Park. The details are:
07 Manchester, UK @ Castlefield Bowl
15 Dublin, IE @ Iveagh Gardens
02 Glasgow, UK @ SWG3 Galvanizers Yard
13 London, UK @ Gunnersbury Park
