English singer and songwriter Rex Orange County has treated us all with the release of his hotly anticipated fourth studio album, WHO CARES?. The musical project of Alex O'Connor, the musician has teamed up once again with Tyler, The Creator on the albums latest single, OPEN A WINDOW.
Co-produced by Benny Sings within a ten day period, the record continues the musicians staple genre-fusing sonics weaving together bedroom pop, jazz and hip-hop, with O'Conner's vocals gliding atop lush and groove-laden soundscapes. Orchestral work is threaded throughout the album, opening with beautiful strings on KEEP IT UP, and offers a refined quality the collection of songs. Laced with endearing lyricism, the musician paints vivid pictures as he ruminates on love, offering up confessional moments that we can all find relatable.
Rex Orange County is set to return to Australia this September for a run of national tour dates. Kicking off at Sydney's Hordern Pavillion on September 8, the tour will continue on to Brisbane, Adelaide and Melbourne, before wrapping up in Perth on September 17. Tickets are on sale now!
