Anna Burch has confirmed plans for her second album, 'If You're Dreaming'

Anna Burch has announced her second album, 'If You're Dreaming'.

Due on 3rd April, the follow-up to 'Quit The Curse' is preceded by lead single 'Not So Bad', and accompanied by a UK tour scheduled for May.

"I wrote 'Not So Bad' the day before I left to record," she says, "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."

Check out 'Not So Bad' below.
