Back in January, Murs & 9th Wonder announced that they were back in the studio working on a new album. Fast forward to June, we’ve got some brand new music from the two along with the album title and tracklisting. The Soul Council produced album will be called The Iliad Is Dead And The Odyssey Is Over. Murs & 9th released two singles “Night Shift” (produced by Ka$h) and “Ga$ Station Gucci Belt” (produced by 9th Wonder). Features include Heather Victoria, Ruben Vincent, Rapsody, GQ, and more.
9th [Wonder] and I have been working together since ’03, and we’re like brothers at this point. This album is my first release post-Strange Music and post-a lot of other major life changes,” Murs told AFH. “I wanted to give it my all, so my wife was kind enough to hold down the fort for a few weeks while I immersed myself in the recording process. [We spent] 18 hours a day listening to beats and trying to craft the best material possible. The Iliad Is Dead And The Odyssey Is Over is the result.”
“We definitely didn’t rush; as evidenced by the 41-city tour I just completed promoting an album that still isn’t out,” he continued. “I am tremendously proud of our work, and I’m looking forward to sharing with the world. As I begin the next chapter in this epic saga, I am blessed to call my career The Iliad Is Dead And The Odyssey Is Over. When 9th first said that was the title. I was like ‘Nah;’ but now I think it’s a perfect fit for this moment in time.”
