This Friday October 19th How To Dress Well will release his new album The Anteroom. So far we've heard the propulsive 'Nonkilling 6 | Hunger', and today he shares the inchoate slow burner 'Body Fat'.

Tom Krell expands on the inspiration for 'Body Fat', saying "The song is about the intergenerational transmission of trauma – about the way rage persists in the flesh from way before you as an individual. This is why life is painful, why love is difficult... When I first started writing it, I felt like 'damn THIS is the song I've been trying to write for the last 5 years."

Rather than express the intergenerational rage as a loud and uncomporomising sound, Krell turns the feeling inside out and makes it into a salve. In delicate and compassionate tones, he uses his heavenly voice to caress and soothe people who feel this unwarranted pressure of previous generations, and leaves them with the feeling of newness and acceptance. Check it out below.
