After 15 years of their anniversary of partnership, Murs & 9th Wonder drop their new collaborative project, Murs 3:16: The 9th Edition released on Def Jux. Over the course of the last fifteen-years, Murs & 9th have released five additional albums. The Final Adventure album (2012) was thought be the end of the series.
The Iliad Is Dead And The Odyssey Is Over (the title references the two poems that are attributed to Greek poet Homer) is the final installment of Murs & 9th Wonder’s epic journey and it will be released on 7-19-2019 via EMPIRE. In addition to the album announcement, Murs & 9th also released two new singles, “Night Shift,” (produced by Kash) B/W “Ga$ Station Gucci Belt” which is produced by 9th Wonder.
“9th and I have been working together since ’03 and were like brothers at this point. This album is my first release post-Strange Music and post a lot of other major life changes” Murs stated to Ambrosiaforheads. “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. 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. 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.”
“Murs is my brother and its always good working with family” says 9th Wonder. “I hope you all enjoy another Murs/9th Wonder adventure; this time with a twist.”
