The-Dream Debuts Tracklisting for ‘1977’ Internet Album
Though producer-singer The-Dream threatened to retire after the release of his last album, 'Love King,' he has since returned with a new single and an 11-song internet-only effort to tide fans over until the release of his official fourth album, 'The Love, IV: Diary of a Madman.'
A tracklisting for the 'Umbrella' producer's internet album, '1977,' was recently announced, along with the guest features, including Kanye West protégé Big Sean and The-Dream's Radio Killa Records signee Casha. The record, which will be available on Aug. 31, features the singles 'Form of Flattery,' and 'Long Gone,' for which a video was shot in Brooklyn recently.
"'Love King' was rushed and the label was in transition," The-Dream said of his last album's poor reception, in a recent interview. "I was the only one that was stupid enough to put out an album while in transition. A 'Rookie Mistake.' But it helped me a lot in reassuring to me that it takes a team to win. I've grown more and I'm producing outside of myself more and that's really a joy. I'm really happy about my production growth in being able to have the patience to completely take a record from A-Z."
