To celebrate the 5th anniversary of his debut album Bcos U Will Never B Free, Rex Orange County just shared a live performance video featuring songs from the 10-track project. In the video, Rex brings viewers along on a personal and intimate session, playing songs like “A Song About Being Sad,” “Belly (The Grass Stains)” and hit single “Corduroy Dreams” alongside Pino Palladino.

“I remember being 16, mid way through my final years of school and feeling like I had a lot I wanted to say,” Rex says on the album. “I didn’t have a strong intention with the release of Bcos U Will Never B Free, I just felt determined to make something and put it out into the world. But with it came the idea and belief to pursue music as a career. I could have never predicted that I’d end up playing some of those songs to the people in all the places I’ve toured since. And I feel so lucky to still be making music 5 years on.”

Along with the performance video, Rex is dropping Bcos U Will Never B Free on vinyl for the first time ever. The record is available on standard black vinyl, as well as on limited edition pink. Limited Bcos U Will Never B Free hoodies and t-shirts in black-and-white colorways are also available along with the record.

Watch Rex’s performance video above and purchase the Bcos U Will Never B Free vinyl on Rex Orange County’s website.
