Image Courtesy Island Def JamThe-Dream has announced a release date for his new Crown EP.
Led by the single “That’s My Sh**” featuring T.I., the project is scheduled to arrive April 14. It’s The-Dream’s first release since leaving Def Jam and launching his own label, Contra Paris, in conjunction with Capitol Records.
Later in the year, the singer plans to release Jewel, which will also include contributions from his production partner Tricky Stewart.
“Crown is more modern R&B, and Jewel will be more what you might think of as my songwriter side, the songs I might have given to other artists before,” The-Dream explains to Vibe. “If you put me in a box, Jewel is more what you get when that box is open. But I’m not limited by any box I’ve been put in — every year I’m expanding and growing, and it makes for a more interesting plot.”
