How To Dress Well has announced new album ‘The Anteroom’!
According to a press release, the album was produced by Joel Ford and “plays as a single continuous piece of 21st century psychedelic music”. The album will be Tom Krell’s fifth album and the follow-up to his 2016 album ‘Care’ and is set to be released 19th October via Domino.
About the new record, Tom said: “I wrote the record after moving to Los Angeles, which is a crazy and maybe dreadful place, right after the 2016 election, with hell and death gaining ground all around us on every corner of the globe. The Anteroom is testament to a two year period in which I felt myself slipping out of the world and into a cosmic loneliness in which I would eventually be dissolved. In order to give myself a way back, I began to try to understand my station as some kind of anteroom – a space between – a chamber that separates the known and the unknown, stable life from total disintegration.”
He’s also shared the first track from the record, called ‘Nonkilling 6 | Hunger’, which features a stanza from poet Li Young-Lee, one of the many poets featured on the album. You can watch the video for the track, which was written and directed by Tom himself alongside visual artist Justin Daashuur Hopkins, below.

The track is lifted from Tom Krell’s ‘The Anteroom’ LP from last year.
Surely How To Dress Well’s most exciting work to date.
Putting his own spin on pop, Tom Krell’s taking ‘Care’ in a whole new direction.
