Singer-producer The-Dream dropped his 11-song free album, ’1977,’ Wednesday (Aug. 31) as promised, in preparation for his long-delayed official fourth album, ‘The Love, IV: Diary of a Madman.’

Released under his given name, Terius Nash, ’1977′ features appearances by Big Sean on ‘Ghetto,’ and Pharrell on ‘This S— Real N—-,’ along with singles ‘Form of Flattery’ and ‘Long Gone,’ for which a visual has already been shot.

“The ‘TERIUS NASH EST. 1977 is very personal and to my Fans!” The-Dream tweeted about the free album — the tweet has since been deleted. “BTW NO ONE AT DEFJAM IS HAPPY ABOUT A FREE ALBUM LOL…. they are trying to stop it!”

Bolstered by his typically synth-heavy production, the ‘Umbrella’ producer covers familiar territory on the free album, but for fans, ’1977′ will serve as an exciting taste of what’s to come on his upcoming release, which has been mired in label delays.
