Alexander James O'Connor is known professionally as Rex Orange County, the English singer and songwriter from the village of Grayshott, Surrey. O’Connor gained his big break in 2017 after multiple features on Tyler, the Creator’s Grammy-nominated album Flower Boy. He followed that success with his second album, Apricot Princess, which charted at number 2 on the Heatseakers Albums chart. Pony, his third studio album and major-label debut was released in October 2019, Hannah Mylrea from NME wrote of the album, "A dazzling follow up to Apricot Princess, Rex Orange County’s third studio album is a total delight. It may be miserable outside, and the world's going to shit, but try listening to Pony and not feeling a little bit more optimistic about the future. Go on, we dare you." Pony ranked at number 1 on the Top Rock Albums, number 3 on the Billboard 200, and number 5 across the pond on the UK Albums charts.
O'Connor's fourth album, Who Cares?, will be released on 11 March 2022 and marks his first release since 2020. He had an international tour scheduled in 2020, but it was cut short due to COVID. Rex says, after spending so much time quarantined, by January 2021 he wanted to create new music, and spent several days working with Benny Sing to produce this latest album, which also features Tyler, the Creator.
