This news comes just ahead of the release of Rex Orange County’s new album, WHO CARES? out NOW via Sony Music Entertainment Australia and marks the first time the uplifting singer-songwriter will grace Australian shores in over three years.

Alongside the announce of his album, Rex also shared the record’s lead single and its accompanying video ‘KEEP IT UP’. The clip sees Rex dancing his way through Amsterdam’s busy city centre as he performs the track alongside musician Benny Sings, with whom he created WHO CARES? over the course of a few sessions in Sings’ Amsterdam studio.

Rex followed ‘KEEP IT UP’ with the Valentine’s Day release of upbeat ode to falling in love, ‘AMAZING’. The track is accompanied by a video with visuals featuring finger puppets directed by Chris Ullens. WHO CARES? is Rex’s first release since 2020’s Live at Radio City Music Hall EP taken from his two sold-out shows at the venue in 2020 just before his international Pony tour was cut short due to COVID-19. As it turns out, that tour being interrupted is part of the genesis of Rex’s new album. After spending the bulk of 2020 quarantined back home in the UK, Rex made his way to Amsterdam to record with Benny Sings, with whom he crafted the 2017 platinum selling breakout single ‘Loving is Easy’.

What started as sessions without expectations turned into an incredibly productive 48-hour window of recording with Benny, prompting a follow-up trip to Amsterdam. The subsequent 10 days of work together produced Rex’s fourth album, made in close partnership with Benny, that is a playful record by an artist in a playful mood. The album also finds Rex reunited with one of his earliest champions, Tyler, The Creator, who contributes a verse to ‘OPEN A WINDOW’, marking the first time the two have collaborated since Tyler’s 2017 album Flower Boy.

Rex Orange County’s 2020 Australian shows were all sold out, though had to be cancelled with ticket holders refunded due to COVID-19. There’s no doubt his 2022 shows will receive the same enthusiasm, so if you want to catch the vibrant crooner in action you better jump on tickets quick!
