Annie Dressner Announces New Album “I Thought It Would Be Easier”, Premieres New Song “Dance We Do” on BBC Radio 6
American singer-songwriter Annie Dressner has announced that her fourth studio album “I Thought It Would Be Easier” will be released on April 5, 2024 via Dharma Records.
It is her first album in four years since the 2020 album “Coffee at the Corner Bar”. Also the album follows up a live album “10 Days” with David Ford, which was released in January 2023.
From the album, she premiered a brand new song called “Dance We Do” on BBC Radio 6 with Riley & Coe.
The track was written and produced by Annie Dressner, with production by Paul Goodwin.
Annie Dressner said of the song, “This is a love song about someone who has put themselves out there over and again, but only to be turned down and let down. There are some people with whom you cannot tell where you stand.”
- On the new album, Annie Dressner conveys a multitude of emotions with songs that feel open, welcoming and understanding of how complex being human can be.
Annie Dressner said of the album, “'I Thought It Would Be Easier' encompasses the theme of the record. I didn't realize how hard life could be and would be at certain times. I hope that the record will resonate with people. Perhaps they have gone through similar things and therefore feel heard and comforted by the songs. Maybe the songs can express the listener's emotions that they couldn't articulate themselves. Or maybe people will just like the way that they sound! I guess I just hope people like the record... I know I do!”
