No you’re not dreaming…The-Dream really just dropped a new EP out of nowhere.
The appearance of “7.7.7” on the album artwork seemed to be hinting at a possible release date. Indeed, less than 24 hours later – on July 7th at 7 p.m. – the EP was released.
The veteran R&B singer also launched Contra Paris, a “design and culture label,” which he will be managing with long-time collaborator Tricky Stewart.
The-Dream described the vision behind his new project via Instagram, writing:
“I have no wishes to build a Record Label, or pursue the old idea of what a record label is this Venture is all about Culture and everything that surrounds Music. Me and my Partner Tricky Stewart will do our best at showing you the world through the eyes Of the Young Black Dreamers. Love and Sophistication are two ideal parts of wanting to live “Fancy”. I feel if we can show it to you as it has been a blessing for us to have seen it with our eyes and heard it with our ears then we all may want for More of what life has to offer. We want to change how you feel about Life through music and Culture and also change what we see in Each other! Love.”
Lord knows what new surprises will come from this label. For now, we can only dream. Download The-Dream’s new EP here.
