Last summer, 19-year-old Rex Orange County hopped on Tyler, the Creator’s Flower Boy album, contributing to the tracks “Boredom” and “Foreword”. Now, the up-and-coming UK musician is further establishing himself with yet another major collaboration.
As part of Spotify’s RISE series, Rex Orange County has linked up with renowned composer Randy Newman for a new rendition of his Toy Story theme “You’ve Got A Friend in Me”. Their joint take features more piano and Rex Orange County’s magnetic falsetto.
