Rex Orange County’s ‘Threat’ is a Radiant Summer Jam

Volume up, windows down, sun cream on...

Rex Orange County has released his latest single, ‘Threat’; a one-off single following the release of Rex’s chart-topping debut album ‘WHO CARES?’, unveiled earlier this year. 

The singer-songwriter blends elements of melodic funk and the driving percussion of afrobeats for an upbeat, summery track. Also known as Alexander James O’Connor, Rex Orange County wrote and produced ‘Threat’ alongside pals Teo Halm and Jim Reed.

The release is accompanied by an animated visualizer of O’Connor hanging from a car, careening and swerving obstacles.  

On Saturday the 13th of August, Rex Orange County will play a sold-out hometown performance in Gunnersbury Park, London to 20,000 people.
