Wu Tang Clan announced today that they inked a deal with Warner Bros. Records for their new , highly anticipated album. The new reunion album will be released on December 2nd. The reunion album titled: “A Better Tomorrow” will be the WTC’s first album since 2007’s 8 Diagrams and will feature all WTC members with the exception of the group’s founder Ol’Dirty Bastard who passed away in 2004.
RZA sat down with Billboard to discuss some new developments surrounding Wu-Tang Clan’s new album A Better Tomorrow. He reveals that a limited edition portable speaker by Boombotix (pictured above) will come loaded with songs from the album and exclusive bonus tracks. Only 3,000 of them will be produced. Find the speaker’s tracklist below.
He said the album will come packaged with a manifesto that he wrote. He also discussed the album’s concept:
And the album has a small concept in a sense, musically it travels from a guy who is going through difficulties, tries to find himself, gets involved with some violence, some troubles, but then realizes that it’s best sometimes to walk away from the past and all the bad times and maybe work on making his life better, and making a better tomorrow.
He said recording started in L.A. with Adrian Younge, then he worked in Memphis at soul legend Willie Mitchell’s studio with musicians who recorded for Stax and Hi Records. Then, he worked in studios across Europe before returning to 36 Chambers East.
