The-Dream is re-releasing ‘1977’ and wants you to pay for it

Super creative artist is prepping his unofficial album for a full release and is putting off 'Love King IV' - again.


Words by: Anthony Walker

R&B kingpin, pop maestro and self proclaimed radio killer The-Dream is re-releasing his free 2011 album ‘1977’ commercially. The project was first put out under the artist’s real name Terius Nash in a ruse to sneak it under the noses of the bosses at Def Jam.

Newly appointed executive vice president of A&R at the label, Nash is now one of those bosses, and they’ve announced the internet LP is being released on December 18th. The stripped back, open-wound-baring ‘1977’ is a high quality album deserving of an official stamp and broader recognition, but the really disappointing thing is that it means yet another push back to the long awaited fourth installement of his ‘Love King’ series.

The tracklist for ‘1977’ and a stream of one of the album highlights Wedding Crasher are available below:

1. Wake Me When It’s Over
2. Used to Be
3. Long Gone
4. Ghetto (Feat. Big Sean)
5. Wedding Crasher
6. Rolex (Feat. Casha)
7. Silly (Introducing Casha)
8. 1977 (Miss You Still)
9. Wish You Were Mine
10. Real (feat. Pharrell)
11. Form of Flattery
