R&B singer-songwriter The-Dream, who has reportedly been unhappy with his relationship with Def Jam Recordings in recent months, has just released a free digital album called 1977 on his official website (radiokillarecords.com) under his real name, Terius Nash. The release, which is a full album and not a mixtape, contains 11 songs. Earlier in August, Dream said that his previously-announced fourth album, The Love, IV (Diary of a Mad Man), which was originally planned for a Sept. 20 release on Def Jam, had been delayed due to contract issues. So in the meantime, he's gone ahead and put out a different, free release. Dream claims that Def Jam's lawyers could place a cease and desist order out on 1977 at any time, and he advises fans to grab it online while they can. Whether this is actually true or part of a clever marketing scheme remains to be seen. But either way, you can directly download 1977 by clicking the link below. Alternately, you can stream each song individually and also read the lyrics at his Radio Killa website.
