(AllHipHop News) Grammy winning singer-songwriter The-Dream recently screened his exclusive art film experience Genesis during Art Basel at the Versace Mansion. The R&B star spoke with Tidal about the 10 song/visual compilation.
"This visual art project was created to give fans a glimpse of my daily thoughts. I along with my fans are lovers of music and art, but to me those two worlds are one and the same," says The-Dream. "I can never fully explain what I see and what I hear separately, it must be fused into one."
Genesis is now available for streaming on Tidal. According to The-Dream, he had plans to use the video medium in this way for over a decade.
"It was a part of my approach. In 2005, I predicted that music would have to be coupled with visuals on a regular basis in the near future," added the North Carolina native. "To hear music is to feel it, and a feeling no matter what is always true, but as they say seeing is believing."
The-Dream is also embarking on a 7-date tour next month. Check out the tour schedule and the Genesis trailer below.
