In case you haven’t heard, a brand new star studded new Classixx album is on its way. Faraway Reach drops on June 3rd, and it features a dazzling roster of guests, including De Lux, Passion Pit, T-Pain, Panama, Harriet Brown, and more. The Los Angeles duo unveiled their song Just Let Go today, which features How To Dress Well. It’s been some time since we last heard from How To Dress Well’s Tom Krell, and his warm crooning is much welcome on Classixx’s bright and airy house jam. Cool and refreshing Just Let Go urges me to do exactly that as I surrender to its breezy light embrace. Pre-order Classixx’s new album or purchase the newly revealed single from iTunes.

It’s been a year since How To Dress Well blew everyone’s minds with his third studio album What Is This Heart, but Tom Krell makes a sudden re-appearance this week with a new video for album track Precious Love. It’s one of the most tender serenades off the critically acclaimed release, and its video reflects that saccharine sweetness to the max. This track always reminds me of early Janet Jackson, when she doled out her fleecy ballads in the 90′s. I suddenly have an urge to listen to Again, and then pop in What Is This Heart again for a full How To Dress Well re-visit.

This one’s definitely one of the more surprising remixes to surface this week. Ever wonder what a cross between electronic R&B master Tom Krell, aka How To Dress Well, and Jack Antonoff fronted alt band Bleachers might sound like? I never have, either. But sure enough, here we are, with a remix of Bleachers’ exhilarating anthem Rollercoaster remixed by How To Dress Well. Tom Krell quiets the boisterous original down and gives it a very tender and hushed makeover brimming with poignant strings, emotional piano, additional dreamy vocals, and expansive spaciousness. Exquisite.

UK based Iranian musician TĀLĀ teamed up with Tom Krell, or much revered electronic R&B artist How To Dress Well, on a new track named The One. Except, there isn’t just one version of the song, there’s two! It’s like Christmas morning! And I honestly couldn’t pick which of the two I preferred to share above, and which below, so the choice is really rather random. One is TĀLĀ’s version, one is Tom Krell’s, and both are absolutely magnificent. While How To Dress Well’s The One is a bolder, more fiery jam, TĀLĀ’s version is slightly more mystical and extra steamy. Both versions of their spectacular collaboration are full on seductive and overwhelmingly intoxicating. The two crafted the song together for Yours Truly’s Songs From Scratch singles series. 

Whoops, blogger mistake. Forgot to embed the other version when I posted yesterday, so let me get this up correct. Here you go, the TĀLĀ version below, too!

How To Dress Well’s Precious Love, remixed by Vancouver producer Cyril Hahn, is one blissful, breath taking experience. As if Tom Krell’s falsettos and mopey, lovelorn vocals and music weren’t already melting enough, Cyril Hahn gives the track a splendid, gentle plushness and pillowy air. Sigh. The remix is off “What Is This Heart? Remixes”, out now on Weird World.

Tom Krell, aka How To Dress Well, is already so adept at making us all swoon and melt with his beautiful R&B infused music, as he did pretty much throughout his whole album Repeat Pleasure earlier this year. Rhode Island producer The Range creates an even more haunting and intoxicating remix out of Words I Don’t Remember, which will be on How To Dress Well’s upcoming digital album What Is This Heart?, out October 27.

RL Grime – Reminder feat. How To Dress Well

September 18, 2014

This morning was a very, very good morning for a trap head like me. There were countless new releases ranging from filthy to chill that had me delerious in my seat. For starters, RL Grime shared a BBC radio rip from his premiere of new track Reminder, which features none other than Tom Krell, aka How To Dress Well, on R&B guest vocals. For RL Grime, this is likely one of the least trappy tunes he’s released, as the production is slick and smooth, to match with Krell’s crooning. This is more The Weeknd like, in some ways, and seductively sumptuous. Reminder will be on RL Grime’s new album Void, out come November on WeDidIt.
