The-Dream to release free album under own name at the end of this month

Probably the greatest producer of his generation will release an album under his own name called 1977.

The-Dream: ultra quick recap. Atlanta gentlemen, produced Single Ladies, Umbrella and 1+1, three extraordinary solo albums and is probably the greatest R&B producer working at the moment, which puts him pretty high up in producer stakes full-stop. Anyhoo, he revealed over Twitter last night that his fourth album as The-Dream, ‘Diary Of A Madman’, has been held back until the fourth quarter by his label (and it is his label; he was vice-president for a short while) Def Jam, and as a result, he’s decided to drop a free internet album. In his own words:

LP4 is Underway I THEDREAM 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! 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 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! BTW NO ONE AT DEFJAM IS HAPPY ABOUT A FREE ALBUM LOL…. they are trying to stop it!

We can’t wait.
