Almost a decade after its original release, Are You A Dreamer? will be issued on vinyl. Count Your Lucky Stars and New Granada Records are celebrating a co-release of the album’s ten-year anniversary with its inaugural vinyl pressing, a limited release of black, oxblood, and sea blue vinyl, available July 24th.
Originally released on July 26, 2005, Are You A Dreamer? sold more than 10,000 copies worldwide and has been licensed/released in Europe (Bad Taste Records), Australia (SPUNK!), and South Korea (Ales Music). It features a talented collection of musicians, including Innocence Mission’s Don and Karen Peris, Sufjan Stevens, James McAlister (Sufjan Stevens, Alexi Murdoch), and Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), filling out the sound of Witmer’s personal narrative tales.
Are You A Dreamer? is loosely conceptual, examining beginnings, endings, imagination, faith, aspiration, and the world of dreams. In Denison’s own words: “Are You A Dreamer? is about finding peace and remaining hopeful in a situation that feels completely out of control. A lot of people are feeling defeated right now. We’re full of anxiety associated with our society’s pressure to become something more important than what we feel we currently are. We’re constantly being told that if we’re not moving forward (or able to prove how we’ve gotten to where we are with perfect checks and balances), then we can’t be trusted or taken seriously. Are You A Dreamer? is giving in to life’s mysteries, picking yourself back up, and continuing to go for it even in the face of a string of failures.”
