Tom Krell aka How To Dress Well has announced a new album What Is This Heart which is going to be released this summer. He keeps teasing us with tracks off this album: a few weeks ago he released "Words I Don't Remember" supported by a really cool video with almost no information about it whatsoever and now he released "Repeat Pleasure" and announced an album.
I've been following Krell for quite a while and one can clearly trace the progression of his sound and how mature and different it is getting. Even though I loved his previous works, these two last songs are definitely making it on my top list this year. Alt R&B is apparently the genre, but I would not stick to just one thing. It's a touching and sentimental pop tune, spiced up with unexpectedly strong guitar and Krell's soft vocals. As Krell says himself "the track was inspired by 'I Would Die 4 U' Prince, 'Make 1, 2' Arthur Russell, [and] 'Everywhere' Stevie Nicks."
