Eight new Wu-Tang Clan tracks will be available on a portable speaker on Black Friday.
Earlier this year, Wu-Tang Clan made headlines all over the place when they announced that only one copy of their albumÂ Once Upon A Time In Shaolin wouldÂ be released, and while we don't have any more news on that, the Clan have announced another unique release strategy, this time for their other new album,Â A Better Tomorrow.
Speaking with BillboardÂ yesterday, RZA revealed that the album would be released by Black Friday (November 28) and that a limited edition Boombotix portable speakerÂ would be released with five album tracks and three bonus ones. Only 3,000 will be made.
RZA described his motivation for making the speaker: "I had the idea pop up into my head, for a while, about music being kind of disconnected to us. Of being so digitized and accessible, but yet not tangible. But this thing here, a tangible item, like your old Walkman or your old cassette, or your old record, thatâs what this is bringing back."
