How to Dress Well mastermind Tom Krell is a shifting presence in the videos from his upcoming album“What Is This Heart?” (due out June 24 via Weird World). The spectral, intimately atmospheric song-weaver played a convenience store clerk and a doctor in the video for the record’s stunning “Repeat Pleasure.” That clip was the first in a trilogy directed by Johannes Greve Muskat. Now comes the second installment, for the astral-pop tour de force “Face Again.” Here Krell plays, as he puts it on Twitter, a “benevolent shaman,” who guides the young-couple protogonists as they light a funeral pyre for a lost loved one. The video trilogy will screen in full at How to Dress Well’s record release party, set for the Slipper Room in New York on June 10.
