Rex Orange County – Edition (Listen)
Rex Orange County has had one hell of a year. He released his critically acclaimed album, Apricot Princess, back in April, then followed that up by securing a guest spot on Tyler the Creator’s latest LP and then a spot in Frank Ocean’s live band for his European festival appearances. Oh, and he landed himself a show on Beats 1.
Now Rex is back with a new track, Edition, which finds him doling out relatable relationship advice over muted piano chords. The track has a definite ‘Blonded-era’ Frank Ocean vibe to it, but that is no bad thing at all. In fact, Edition is a wonderful display of honest songwriting and emotional depth, made more impressive by the fact that it clocks in at under two minutes long.
