"It's amazing what my baby can do," 9th Wonder told Complex of the track, taken from the upcoming The Iliad Is Dead and the Odyssey Is Over. "What she has been able to accomplish while only making beats for two-years, born with a profound hearing loss. I guess she is just born with the gift to feel."
According to Rapsody, the song was formed after they were just playing around in the studio. "Making 'High Noon' was one of the funniest times I've had working with another artist. It started as a Patagucci joke, and turned into a jam where Murs and I got to flex and have fun at the same time," she explained. "I haven’t gone back and forth on verses in a while. It was dope to create in that way again-- just spitting."
Noting that the song, also featuring Reuben Vincent, brings things "full circle," Murs also expressed excitement about his latest 9th collab. Notably, the classic literature-referencing The Iliad Is Dead and the Odyssey Is Over will go down as the final installment in the duo's prolific marathon of collaborations that began with Murs 3:16 - The 9th Edition.
The Iliad Is Dead and the Odyssey Is Over is out Aug. 9 via EMPIRE. Stream "High Noon" below.
Another treat for Murs and 9th Wonder fans: Brighter Daze, their 2015 release, will finally be available on streaming services Friday (July 19).
In an Instagram note earlier this month, Murs went deep on why he’ll be holding off on shows until later this fall but urged fans to keep calm as "lots of new music and visuals" were in the pipeline.
