Wu-Tang Clan to Release Only One Copy of Secret Album


The double album titled 'Once Upon a Time in Shaolin', which took six year to complete, will be taken to a tour before being sold to a lucky fan for millions.

While fans are eagerly waiting for "A Better Tomorrow", Wu-Tang Clan reveals that they've recorded tracks for a double album called "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin". In an interview with Forbes, the rap collective says that there will be only one copy of the special album that was recorded in secret for six years.

The opus will feature 31 songs that clock in at 128 minutes. Wu-Tang Clan's mastermind RZA and the album's producer Tarik "Cilvaringz" Azzougarh say that the album is going to be showcased in festivals, galleries and museums.

Fans will have to pay $30-$50 to listen to the tracks. High security will guard the project and prevent it from leaking. Once the tour is over, Wu-Tang Clan will sell the album to a fan who will likely purchase it for millions.

"We're about to sell an album like nobody else sold it before," RZA explains. "We're about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of [modern] music. We're making a single-sale collector's item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king."

"Once Upon a Time in Shaolin" will be presented in "a hand carved nickel-silver box" designed by British-Moroccan artist Yahya. The project features Wu-Tang Clan's new music with guest appearances from Bonnie Jo Mason, Redman and FC Barcelona soccer players.

It's unclear when fans can finally listen to "Once Upon a Time in Shaolin". For now, the New York rap group is still putting final touches on "A Better Tomorrow" that is planned to be released this summer. Last week, they teased the new record with a track called "Keep Watch".
