"Murs is a true underground phenomenon, a heartfelt lyricist and master wordsmith."
Following the release of his newest release 'A Strange Journey Into the Unimaginable', R&B veteran MURS takes the Drake Underground. Recently signed to Tech N9ne’s Strange label and produced by Michael "Seven" Summers, some of his new tracks take on a looser, live-band feel, and those drums, pianos, saxophones and acoustic guitars lend the record welcome warmth.
If Murs has kept an uncharacteristically low profile in recent years, his new album tells us why: He was withering a divorce and a custody battle, and by his account barely getting by. Once he gets some of the weight off his chest, the record brightens and becomes more or less another Murs album, offering a reminder that Murs is still pretty funny, rhythmic and has a way with words.
