Sivan described the "concept EP" as "A story that's still unfolding, this small collection of songs explores an emotional rollercoaster period in my life when the feelings and thoughts were most shockingly fresh. Revisiting these songs and moments is tough, but I'm proud of this music and excited to have it out in the world."
In a Dream serves as the follow-up to his sophomore album, Bloom, released in August 2018. The project was initially described by Sivan as "not an album, but probably bigger than an EP." However, with the release of the pre-order it was confirmed to be an EP.
Its lead single, "Take Yourself Home", was released on 1 April 2020.
The second single, "Easy", was released on 15 July, along with the EP’s announcement and pre-order.
The standard digital edition contains 6 tracks, while the vinyl contains an exclusive track “10/10” at the start of Side B. This is in similar fashion to his the vinyl release of Bloom, which contained the bonus track “Seventeen (Reprise)”.
