How to Dress Well Teases New Music in Website for Upcoming Album ‘Care’
The page announces the new LP's title and shares brief loops of new songs
If someone had told you that an alt-R&B figure was coming out with a new album called Care, it probably wouldn’t take you a ton of guesses to figure out who, would it? Never let it be said that Tom Krell, better known as the perpetually heart-bursting singer/songwriter behind electronic soul project How to Dress Well, doesn’t stay on brand. Krell tweeted a link to his website for the so-titled new LP yesterday, which plays a short video (if you mouse over the lower-right corner) of the shirtless singer having his neck caressed by another bare-chested guy, while a short clip of what appears to be a new song plays in the background.
The site’s other three corners also reveal secrets when browsed over: The top-right flashes a number of phrases (including “Had a nightmare about my Twitter mentions” — didn’t we all), while the top-left displays the message “I lost youth when I lost you,” with an accompanying song snippet, and the bottom left unveils an actual comment about the album: “‘Care’ is a truly joyous record—I hope that hearing it brings you pleasure above all else.” Wouldn’t be the first time.
