How to Dress Well (aka Tom Krell) is releasing a new album, The Anteroom, this Friday (October 19) via Domino. Previously Krell shared a video for the album's first single, "Nonkilling 6 | Hunger." Now he has shared another song from the album, "Body Fat," via a video for the song. Krell wrote the "Body Fat" video and co-directed it with Justin Daashuur Hopkins. The video features 3D modeling and animation by Aron Johnson (aka Crash Override). Watch it below, followed by How to Dress Well's upcoming tour dates.

Krell had this to say about the song in a press release: "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.'"

How to Dress Well's last full-length album was 2016's Care. Joel Ford (Ford & Lopatin, Airbird) co-produced The Anteroom with Krell.

Krell had this to say about the album in a previous press release: "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."
