Alex O’Connor aka Rex Orange County is back with Pony, the long-awaited follow-up to his 2017 album Apricot Princess. The softboi incarnate delivers ten sentimental tracks for his first album with a major label. Listen below.
In Pony, Rex Orange County reflects on getting older with lines such as, “No control over my emotions, One year on and I still can’t focus” on “10/10,” the album’s opening track. On “Face to Face” O’Connor continues to exercise his emotional openness. He tweeted about the track recently, contextualizing the lyrics about “feeling trapped in an undesirable situation, and finding it difficult to trust people.”
