R&B singer/songwriter/producer The-Dream (aka Terius Nash), who planned to release the album The Love, IV (Diary of a Mad Man) last year, has been delaying the release of it and he recently changed the name to just Love IV MMXII. He's also announced that the album's first single, "Roc," will be released on iTunes on March 6 (watch the video for that song below) and just revealed another new track called "Kill the Lights," which is a collaboration with Casha, who he previously collaborated with on last year's "internet album" 1977. You can stream that track and read the lyrics at RadioKillaRecords.

The-Dream will kick off a tour in March, after the "Roc" single drops on iTunes, which hits NYC on March 11 and 12 at SOB's. Tickets for the 3/11 show are on sale now and though the 3/12 show is listed on SOB's site, no ticket link is currently available. His tour also hits SXSW and it was recently announced that he has been added to Pitchfork's showcase which also includes Fiona Apple, Grimes, Purity Ring, Nicolas Jaar, and Charli XCX.

Guy is so fucking boring live.
Great music to fuck to though.

Thanks for the tip, 1:23. I was considering buying tickets for his show at SOB's because I fucking love his recorded output. It's so rare to have hip-hop and R&B done well in a live setting.

Dipshit, buy a hat that fits properly. Take the stickers off of it, and bend the rim. You look like a fucking idiot.

2:39...I agree wholeheartedly. The sticker I'm most annoyed at is the one with the barcode. I'm convinced these idiots can't afford the hats, buy them and return them after the photo shoots.
