The Iliad is Dead and the Odyssey is Over Album (Listen Here)
Murs split with Strange Music, Inc. earlier this year after fulfilling his contractual obligations and has already embarked on a new journey. On Wednesday (May 29), the Living Legend announced a joint project with prolific producer 9th Wonder titled The Iliad Is Dead and The Odyssey Is Over. Pre-order album here.
The collaborative effort continues their long working relationship, which was solidified in 2004 with the duo’s first release, Murs 3:16: The 9th Edition.
To mark the occasion, Murs shared two singles from the forthcoming project, the Kash-produced “Night Shift,” and the 9th-produced “Ga$ Station Gucci Belt.”
“9th and I have been working together since ’03 and were like brothers at this point,” Murs said in a press release. “This album is my first release post-Strange Music and post a lot of other major life changes.
“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. Eighteen hours a day listening to beats and trying to craft the best material possible.”
Expected Release: July 19, 2019
