Neo-R&B crooner Tom Krell, a.k.a. How To Dress Well, has unveiled the video for “Repeat Pleasure”, the second single off his forthcoming third album, “What Is This Heart?”. Directed by Johannes Greve Muskat, the video, the first in a proposed trilogy, tells the story of a young couple who come together under especially painful circumstances: the girl is a hospice nurse caring for the boy’s ailing grandfather.
The resulting story is a rather profound meditation on the intersection between love and loss, as the two lovers grow closer apart as the grandfather’s slow passing generates endless agony and unrest. The mini-movie is equally romantic and heartbreaking, the kind of fare that will make you swoon at the power of human connection and also crawl into some dark corner and cower in existential dread.

“What Is This Heart?” is due out June 24th via Domino. For more, check out lead single “Words I Don’t Remember”.
