After releasing ‘Apricot Princess’ earlier in the year (and, you know, that small matter of him playing at the Mercurys with Skepta and being part of Frank Ocean’s live band), Rex Orange County is back with a video for ‘Loving Is Easy’.
The clip for the track – which features Benny Sings – sees the pair rendered in animated figures and living together in a small room. They play together and have comfortable moments on the sofa watching TV, though in the end Alex leaves Benny as he’s whisked away by the spirit of love. Luckily, Benny seems pretty chilled about it.
Alex has also just announced a new tour of the UK and Ireland, where he’ll be headed to Dublin, Brighton, London, Bristol and Manchester in February 2018. Tickets are on sale from Friday 13th October.

He’s still a triumph, both in the studio and on-stage.
Equal parts heart wrenching and hopeful.
