Wu-Tang Clan to Make Only One Copy of New Double Album

There will only be one...
If you're a Wu-Tang Clan fan, the ultimate collector's edition is about to be made. RZA told Forbes that the band has a double-album, titled Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, which will only have a single copy made.
RZA and the album's producer, Tarik "Cilvaringz" Azzougarh, revealed that the album was recorded secretly over the past six years and that it will be toured through galleries, festivals and museums like any exclusive work of art might be. It is 128 minutes and runs thirty-one songs, which will be heard under "heavy security." Once the tour is done the album will be sold to a single part for a price "in the millions."
RZA said, "We're about to sell an album like nobody else sold it before. 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."
The group also has a more widely-produced album, the long-delayed A Better Tomorrow, releasing this summer.
