After last week’s track 10/10 received full marks from fans and critics alike, Alex O’Connor hops back in the saddle to announce new album Pony. To be released on 25 October via Sony Music, the album will mark his first solo material since 2017’s Apricot Princess.

Bringing in an uplifting flurry of synths and an affected vocal, on his latest single Rex explores and reflects upon a tough year from which he emerges triumphant, both sonically and mentally after ‘getting his shit together’. It’s a short and snappy track that provides a good indicator of what’s to come from his new material. 

Pony tracklisting:
1. 10/10
2. Always
3. Laser Lights
4. Face To Face
5. Stressed Out
6. Never Had The Balls

9. It Gets Better
10. It's Not The Same Anymore
