The-Dream is ready to take his show on the road. In preparation for his Love IV album, the singer/songwriter is getting ready to embark on a new tour, and on Thursday (February 23), he’s planning to drop a new song to commemorate the run.
The Kill the Lights Tour will begin March 11 in New York, and The-Dream is dropping his new single of the same name. “The name of the song is actually ’Kill the Lights,’ featuring my artist Casha,” he said on Wednesday’s “RapFix Live.”
The song will be featured on the upcoming Love IV, which the ATL crooner estimates will be out in the spring or summer — he doesn’t want to put an exact date on it. The-Dream already dropped the LP’s first single, “ROC,” earlier this year, and in addition to his new LP, he wants to concentrate on grooming Casha, who made her first appearance on The-Dream’s free digital album 1977 singing a remake of Minnie Riperton’s “Love, Stop Making a Fool of Me.”
“I’m just channeling and building her the right way and giving her the right time,” he said of his new artist. “I’m not trying to get, ’She better come out and sell this’; I’m not doing that. She’s too talented for that.”
Instead of creating microwave hits with Casha, The-Dream would rather take his time. “She’s going to sell on her own, she’s great, she’ll be fine,” he said. “I’m trying to slow-bake it.”
