Limited orange vinyl LP pressing. It's been a pretty crazy 12 months for Rex Orange County - AKA 19-year-old Alex O'Connor - from Haslemere, Surrey. After two guest slots on Tyler the Creator's album Flower Boy, he's played live with Frank Ocean and Skepta, all the while working on his debut album, Apricot Princess. The self-released record is full of sumptuous hooks, jazzy piano figures and musical left-turns that suggest a true original at work. He placed second after winner Sigrid in the BBC Sound of 2018 Poll, and recently performed on Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show.
