Detroit singer/songwriter/guitarist Anna Burch has announced a new album, If You're Dreaming, and shared its first single, "Not So Bad," via a self-directed video for the track. She's also announced some tour dates. If You're Dreaming is due out April 3 via Polyvinyl. Check out the "Not So Bad" video, followed by album's tracklist and cover art below, as well as the tour dates.

If You're Dreaming is Burch's second solo album, the follow-up to 2018's Quit the Curse (also released on Polyvinyl).

Burch had this to say about "Not So Bad" in a press release: "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."
