Watch The-Dream Break Down His New Album, Crown Jewel

The first half, Crown, is available today.

FADER cover star and professional hit-maker The-Dream switched things up for his latest album, and we couldn't be more stoked. Crown Jewel is split across two EPs: Crown is available today, and Jewel hits iTunes on July 10th, where fans who purchase it can snag Crown as a free download. Terius told us about why he made a record now, and how he's watched his influence travel throughout modern R&B. He assures there will be more to pilfer with this new batch of tracks, and we take his word for it. Cop Crown on iTunes today.
