Rex Orange County is everywhere right now. The singer plays a sold-out London show at Village Underground tomorrow night (13th September), and has recently been playing as part of Frank Ocean’s live band.
He’s now shared a new single called ‘Edition’, a follow-up to April’s full-length project/album ‘Apricot Princess’.
We recently spoke to Alex O’Connor for a Neu feature, talking about his upbringing and beginnings in music. “I’m lucky to have it come out quite naturally and I don’t have to think about it too hard,” he says of his songwriting process. “In my nature I’ll just say things exactly how they are. I’m not so great with metaphors, I just say it how it is.”
Read the feature in full here, and stream ‘Edition’ below.

You can enjoy ‘Live At Radio City Music Hall’ and ‘Funny How Things Go From One Thing To Another’ now.
In celebration of his debut’s fifth anniversary!
He’s still a triumph, both in the studio and on-stage.
Equal parts heart wrenching and hopeful.
