Apricot Princess is the second studio album by Rex Orange County. It was originally released on April 26, 2017. Apricot Princess is the sound of falling in love. Over 10 sickly-sweet songs, Surrey-born musician Alex O’Connor encapsulates those butterflies-in-your-tummy feelings with lashings of jazzy piano and tales of tripping head-over-heels for someone. It is utterly joyous.
Released to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Apricot Princess. Full Apricot Princess album plus three previously unreleased live versions of Happiness, Television / So Far So Good and Four Seasons recorded at Radio City Music Hall in 2020.
