Wu-Tang Clan to sell one copy of new secret album
A single piece of musical memorabilia
The new 31-track album named The Wu - Once Upon A Time In Shaolin will only be available to hear through a tour of museums, galleries and festivals in a special exhibit which will have visitors passing through heavy security to listen to the new album - ensuring no recording devices are present.
The unique album will be housed in an engraved silver-and-nickel box, handcrafted over a three month period by British-Moroccan artist Yahya.
"We're about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of [modern] music," Wu-Tang member RZA said in a statement, "We're making a single-sale collector's item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king."
After the tour is completed the album will go up for sale in the multimillion-dollar price range, with the buyer choosing to either release the album to the public or keep it to themselves - leaving the music world in sweet suspense.
