We celebrated the release of How To Dress Well’s new album “What Is This Heart?” (one of the best of the year so far) with an interview with Tom Krell, a European tour diary from him, and a look at 10 songs that influenced the album. Today, in advance of the album’s next official single, Krell has shared “Let U Know,” a bonus track from “What Is This Heart?”, along with the following message:
Krell insisted that this song come out before his next single from “WITH?” because, as he put it, “in singing ‘Let U Know,’ I discovered the title of my album and a lot of its meaning — I needed this song to be heard by people, even though I couldn’t find a place for it on the album proper. When I made this song, singing over a song originally by one of my best friends (“Let U Know” is a partial cover of a song by Krell’s friend oFF Love), a lot of what I’d developed on “WITH?” just came clear to me — these questions, these relationships with the past and the future, all this love…”
Check out the raw but beautiful song below.
