No, you wouldn't live longer. Like many have noted already, it has to do with species attributes and configurations. The amount of time it takes for
an object to orbit the Sun has no effect on the passage of time. The orbit of 9000 days tells us that the progression of the planet through orbit is
longer than ours.
Meaning that if you were there and 365 days passed, your planet will not have moved much in comparison to our planet; which would've already made a
lap around the Sun.
Age comes into question when you begin to explore general relativity and special relativity. However, objects do not age slower, it is merely the
perception of them that changes.
If a person traveled at lightspeed in one direction, away from Earth, for about ... 5 minutes of their time. (As in, the time spent in lightspeed is
being measured by the person traveling at lightspeed.)
Here, on Earth, a rather massive amount of time(by comparison to 5 minutes) would have passed. Assuming they turn around and head back to the starting
point. They might find themselves looking at a completely different world.
You do this enough and, by perception of those witnessing your great departure, upon your return you would "basically" be marginally older than
everyone else. You could take a trip and come back to an Earth 5000 years older.
To those people, assuming there are any left, you would "basically" be 5000+ years old, since you were born in an earlier time and happen to still
be in existence.
But this is all relative to the tools of measurement. Literally speaking, you really aren't 5000 years old. You would have the same life expectancy
as any other human, unless space doused you with some weird aging effects or something.
However much time you spend in lightspeed is basically the amount of time you add to the age you've spent on earth. If you spent 30 days at
lightspeed and come back to an Earth 400 years later, you are not actually 400+ years old, you are only 30 days older.
(Don't take the numbers I've dished out literally, they're merely there as an example. I'm not gonna sit here and calculate actual numbers.)
Therefore, your lifespan would have more to do with the configuration of your species and average lifespan than the amount of time it takes for the
planet you inhabit to get around the Sun.
