We’re nine days away from the release of The-Dream’s free online album, 1977, which will be released under his given name, Terius Nash. And to prove he’s not just messing with us, he has delivered the first leak from the project in “Murderer.” He said that it was inspired by Colombiana, an action film directed by Olivier Megaton and starring Zoe Saldana. The-Dream has even gone so far to juxtapose the song over the movie’s trailer, perhaps in a move to ensure we fully understand what he’s singing about throughout the dramatic, Auto-Tune-laden jam.
You can stream the track below. 1977 drops Aug. 31.
