Fans of The-Dream will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on his new album, but in the meantime the hitmaker has announced plans to release a free album online this month.
Prior to releasing his fourth album The Love, IV: Diary of a Madman later this year, the singer-songwriter will drop a 10-track LP for download. “LP4 is Underway I THE-DREAM have decided to go forward with Diary Of A Madman LP it almost didnt happen. So ill be in my DefJam uniform for atleast one More Season!” he tweeted.
“Also a free 10 song Internet album will be released by Aug 31st. LP 4 because of the Contract negotiations does not have a date but it will be released 4th quarter but i will give a 10 song Internet LP while you guys wait!!!! LOVE YOU.”
The album, entitled Terius Nash Est. 1977, will be released under his birth name. “The Internet LP is entitled 1977 and will be released under my real name Terius Nash not The-Dream. Shooting Videos for 1977 all this week. The TERIUS NASH EST. 1977 is very personal and to my Fans!”
While this may sound like good news to most, his label is not so pleased. “BTW NO ONE AT DEFJAM IS HAPPY ABOUT A FREE ALBUM LOL…. they are trying to stop it!”
In June, The-Dream put out the double single “Body Work”/”Fuck My Brains Out,” but it is unknown if they will appear on the free LP or The Love, IV.
