Must-listen: Rex Orange County's new song 'Open A Window' feat. Tyler, The Creator.

With his new album 'Who Cares?' out tomorrow, Rex Orange County has today shared a third single, 'Open A Window' - which features Tyler, The Creator, and marks the first time the two have collaborated since Tyler's 2017 album, 'Flower Boy'.

In an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 today, Rex spoke about advice he's received from Tyler: "I'd say more than anything, the psychology is more so something to comment on. We spoke on the phone a little bit when he released 'Igor'. I was kind of really worrying a lot about going back to like I said, thinking about releasing this thing, and it was 'Pony' my last album. He just told me like, "The thing is man, there's nothing, there's no such thing as good or bad. It's just it's either for you or not. So I heard something the other day, it wasn't me but I knew as a 12 year old kid in Atlanta who's going to hear that, and it's going to be the same way. He's going to feel the same way I felt when I heard Songs in the Key of Life, for the first time." I was like, "Damn. You can't dismiss anything as bad." I was kind of walking around being like, "But this album it's terrible."He's just like, "Bro, just chill. Stop worrying about what people are going to think." He's very carefree but at the same time, he really, really does care about the long full album. This is the other thing we spoke about recently. He was like, we got to keep the LP alive. We've got to keep albums going.” That's why it's important that I, and he, and everybody just needs to keep making albums. Because it's a lot of stuff that is working right now, is 10 seconds long, or like a hook, or it's just the little part of the song. It doesn't necessarily matter who it's by, what the album was, this, that, and the other. The attention span's going down and down, and we're going to try to keep it alive with double albums."
