Published Aug 02, 2011Fans of sexy R&B were no doubt stoked to learn that ribald crooner The-Dream was prepping his next album, The Love, IV (Diary of a Mad Man), for a September release, but it looks as if the singer will be treating his devoted to even more goodies before the album's official street date. A series of tweets from the musician have revealed that he will be dropping a free online album of new material by month's end.
Going by his posts, it looks a if we'll be waiting just a bit longer for The Love, IV though, explaining why he's set to issue the free load, titled 1977, on August 31. He'll also be releasing the set under his birth name, Terius Nash.
"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! I LOVE YOU," he wrote.
While a full tracklisting has yet to be revealed for 1977, The-Dream further posted that he's currently working on a tune called "Form of Flattery" that will be featured on the album. He also explained that he will be shooting music videos all week. Oh, and that his label, Def Jam, is none too pleased about Nash flooding the market with more sexed-up material.
"BTW NO ONE AT DEFJAM IS HAPPY ABOUT A FREE ALBUM LOL.... they are trying to stop it!"
As it stands, Nash is now expecting The Love, IV (Diary of a Mad Man) late this year.
