Tom Krell, better known as How To Dress Well, released his third record What Is This Heart? last year, an emotional record full of soulful, honest vocals and gushing soundscapes. Now he's released a live version of one of its more affecting tracks Pour Cyril complete with a live orchestra. It's probably one of the most tender, raw performances we've heard in a long terms and to be completely honest our eyes are feeling a little more moist than usual after hearing this. Krell's voice dazzles in all its falsetto-glory and the orchestra sweeps across it playing with emotions like puppet-masters. We'd give anything to see this live in person.

The version below was recorded with Minna Choi’s Magik*Magik orchestra and was performed in Berlin last June.
