Rex Orange County’s new album, Pony, to arrive next month via Sony Music

One of the most hotly-tipped new singer/songwriters of the past few years, British act Rex Orange County, has announced a new album.

Pony is due for release on October 25 via Sony Music. The lead track from the record, 10/10, was released last week.

Rex Orange County, real name Alexander O’Connor, has attracted sustained major label interest on both sides of the Atlantic ever since emerging in 2016 with debut LP bcos u will never b free.

To date, however, he has continued to release music independently in a partnership with Kobalt’s AWAL, including his acclaimed second album, Apricot Princess (2017).

The artist is managed by September Management.



The new album (pictured) was written, recorded, and performed almost entirely by O’Connor himself at Strongroom Studios in East London with frequent collaborator Ben Baptie co-producing, engineering and mixing the album.

Pony includes “10/10“, which Rolling Stone called “triumphant” and a “song you need to know” and was described by NPR as “a sincere, sad-boy gem.”

The album follows performances at a handful of major festivals this year, including UK’s Glastonbury (where he first debuted “10/10”), Paris’ We Love Green, Berlin’s Lollapalooza, and Australia’s Laneway Festival.

Coinciding with the album announce, Rex Orange County is announcing headlining UK and North American tours. The tours will feature some of his biggest headlining shows to date, including The Shrine Auditorium in LA, Radio City Music Hall in NYC, and two O2 Brixton Academy shows in London.

Tickets for all North American tour dates will go on general on-sale Friday, September 27th at 10 AM local time.
