...and only one copy will be produced
'Once Upon a Time in Shaolin'

Wu-Tang Clan have pulled some odd moves.

The American group remain furiously unpredictable, a maze of speculation and mythology which is difficult to penetrate.

Currently approaching the release of new album 'A Better Tomorrow', the band will toast their 20th anniversary with a second - extremely limited edition - LP.

As Forbes points out, Wu-Tang Clan are set to release the top-secret double LP set 'Once Upon a Time in Shaolin' later this year, but only one copy will be pressed.

An elaborate April Fool's joke? Some more details: featuring the entire Wu cast, 'Once Upon a Time in Shaolin' will be released in a silver-and-nickel box created by British-Moroccan artist Yahya.

According to RZA, the box will then 'tour' the United States, with fans paying money to visit art galleries and listen to the material contained therein.

"We’re about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of (modern) music," RZA told Forbes. "We’re making a single-sale collector’s item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king." Once the tour is over 'Once Upon a Time in Shaolin' will then be sold - with the price set at "millions".
