Murs Plans To Take Us On A “Strange Journey” With New LP
Produced entirely by Michael “Seven” Summers, Murs plans on releasing his A Strange Journey Into The Unimaginable LP on March 16.
Murs, a certified hip-hop legend and host of HipHopDX’s The Breakdown, is a Swiss knife type of MC. Capable of giving you a litany of flows, stories, cadences and the like — Murs has showcased his creativity in a myriad of ways for as long as one can remember. Now, with his birthday approaching, Murs is planning another release in the form of A Strange Journey Into The Unimaginable, which is slated for March 16 release.
The 14-track LP is produced entirely by Michael “Seven” Summers, with guest appearances from Tech N9ne, Fashawn, Prof, John Givez and Propaganda.
“You don’t really know who you are until you hit rock bottom, Murs said of the album. “I’m reaffirming that I’m not broken. After everything happened, I had nothing I wanted to say musically. I was in the midst of so much shit tht I really couldn’t speak on where I was… because I didn’t know where I was. November was seven-and-a-half months after my son died. I spent the summer with my oldest son. I was getting back to normal little by little. I thought I could stay at the bottom and wallow, but I had Strange Music reserve the release date two years ago. They pressed me to stick to the deadline. It worked. I’ve always made vulnerable music and been through some things. However, it was nothing like the last four years. So, I screamed back at the abyss.”
In addition to the album’s details, cover art and tracklist, Murs also let loose a video for his “Same Way” single featuring Tech N9ne.
