Rex Orange County shares the second offering from his upcoming album WHO CARES? due March 11th via Sony Music. Layered with orchestral strings, “AMAZING” is an ode to falling in love that arrives with visuals directed by Chris Ullens, who previously directed the video for Rex’s hit song “Loving Is Easy.” “AMAZING” follows the lead single “KEEP IT UP,” which Billboard described as “a tasty bit of happy-go-lucky pop-rock.”

“AMAZING” comes on the heels of Rex announcing a North American tour that will see him play iconic venues across the continent like Forest Hills Stadium in New York, Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado and The Hollywood Bowl and Greek Theatre in California before hitting the UK and Ireland in July and August for a 4-date string of shows. Tickets on sale HERE.
WHO CARES? will mark 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 in Berlin due to Covid-19. As it turns out, however, that tour being cut short is part of the genesis of this album. After spending the bulk of 2020 quarantined back home in the UK, Rex made the trek to Amsterdam that fall 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 his 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,” which marks the first time the two have collaborated since Tyler’s 2017 album Flower Boy.
