Great news for the fans of The-Dream. While the release of his new album The Love, IV: Diary of a Madman has been postponed until later this year, the singer-songwriter has announced to provide his followers with a free 10-track LP for download on August 31.
“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. 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.”
While his label, Def Jam Records, is not too happy about this free gift, the album will be released under his birth name and will be entitled Terius Nash Est. 1977.
“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!”
