How To Dress Well premieres orchestral version of “Pour Cyril” — listen

on March 25, 2015, 1:20pm

How To Dress Well’s What Is This Heart? is the gift that keeps on giving. The well-received 2014 album has already spawned two bonus cuts in “Let U Know” and “So Easy For Pleasure”. Now, HTDW mastermind Tom Krell has unveiled an alternate live version of standout track “Pour Cyril”.

Krell is joined by Minna Choi’s Magik*Magik Orchestra, and together, they infuse the original with lovely, sweeping bits of instrumentation. It’s tough to improve on and/or reinvent a HTDW song so that it feels doubly sentimental, yet somehow Krell’s managed to do so here. According to its official SoundCloud description, the track was first performed in Berlin last June as part of an hour-long live score. Listen in below.
