Rocking A Tribe Called Quest sweatshirt, Murs — underground Hip Hop vet (and host of DX’s The Breakdown) — has delivered a new video for “Melancholy,” a song taken from his forthcoming album, A Strange Journey Into The Unimaginable.
In the track, the Strange Music, Inc. signee opens up about his own struggles with depression.
“On 3/16 (my birthday), I’ll be putting out my most personal album ever,” Murs said in a press release. “I’ve been through a lot in the past couple of years, from a divorce, to the death of my newborn son.
“‘Melancholy’ is the first step on A Strange Journey Into The Unimaginable, my new album produced entirely by Michael ‘Seven’ Summers, Strange Music’s in-house producer and Tech N9ne’s go-to beat-maker,” he continued. “I know it’s the holiday season, and for those of you grieving, feeling alone, or for whatever reason can’t quite get into the holiday spirit, this one’s for you. And for those of you that are in the holiday spirit, consider this an early gift from Seven and myself.”
As Murs mentioned, A Strange Journey Into The Unimaginable is expected on March 16 via Strange Music.
