Today, Rex Orange County announces his debut tour of Asia, playing 5shows across the region.
His new album “Pony” released in October has received widespread critical acclaim and scored him a Top 5 both in the UK and in the US. The British singer and multi-instrumentalist has just completed a sell-out UK tour playing 3 huge shows at O2 Academy Brixton and in January heads to the US for more sold out shows.
His debut album, ‘bcos u will never b free’, self-released on Soundcloud when he was barely 18, caught a wave of interest. Its lo-fi textures and hi-def emotions led to a hook up with Tyler, The Creator. He asked the teenager born Alex O’Connor to come to Los Angeles, where he wrote and sang on two tracks on the album that became Flower Boy.
Inspired, Rex turned to making his own album proper, 2017’s Apricot Princess, a beautiful, woozy, heart-shaped tribute to his girlfriend. A Number Two slot on the BBC’s Sound Of 2018 followed, as did lots – and lots – of touring. So he continues in that fashion and arrives on the shores of Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Philippines and Japan in 2020.
