Anna Burch announces new album & tour w/ Long Beard, shares song

Anna Burch

Anna Burch has announced a new album, If You’re Dreaming, which is due April 3 via Polyvinyl (pre-order). The album was produced by Sam Evian, and the lead single is the jazzy pop of “Not So Bad.” Here’s what Anna says about that:

I wrote “Not So Bad” the day before I left to record, because I felt there was an important piece of the album missing—a hopeful, escapist pop song that dealt more positively with themes the other songs were circling around—and luckily it came together almost immediately. The chord progression felt light and jazzy, and when I started to write the words I remembered my mom bugging me about how melancholic my lyrics tend to be, “Surely your life hasn’t all been that bad!”

I wanted to express the importance of cultivating a rich interior life that falls outside of the economy of images and information we’re disseminating at all times. “Not So Bad” is an optimistic love song about retreating into memories to find what you need to feel in control of your own narrative when everything else around you feels precarious.

Listen and watch the video (directed by Anna with Ben Collins as director of photography and handling editing and color) below.

Anna has also announced a tour, including several dates with Long Beard, one of which is in NYC at The Dance on April 10. Tickets for that show will be on sale soon. All dates (including SXSW) are listed below.
