Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Ahead of his forthcoming UK dates, Rex Orange County has released his highly anticipated new album Pony.
The record is now available to stream across usual platforms, and to purchase through Amazon.
The musician’s third album Pony has received rave reviews with NME describing it as “a total delight”, in a five star write up.
Watch the official video for the record’s lead single 10/10 below:
Rex Orange County first broke through in 2016 with his debut record bcos u will never be free, which was self-released on Soundcloud.
Shortly after the release of the album, Tyler, The Creator reached out to the UK-based artist on Soundcloud, flying him out to Los Angeles to collaborate. The sessions resulted in Rex Orange Country co-writing and contributing vocals to the tracks Boredom and Foreword on Tyler’s fourth studio album Flower Boy.
Inspired, Rex turned to make his own album proper, 2017’s Apricot Princess. A No.2 slot on the prestigious BBC’s Sound Of 2018 followed.
Containing the singles Untitled and Never Enough, Apricot Princess was well received by critics, with The Guardian, NME and Pitchfork all praising the release.
In June 2019 the musician performed at Glastonbury, drawing a huge crowd to the festival’s Park Stage.
