Next November will mark 20th anniversary of the Wu-Tang Clan’s classic debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Since then, there have been four more Wu-Tang studio albums, along with countless compilations and solo albums from the eight surviving members.
Despite this, new material has been hard to come by from many of the Wu since 2007′s 8 Diagrams. However, for Wu-Tang fans good news may be on the horizon. In a recent interview with The New Nork Times, RZA revealed that he is interested in reuniting the group for a final album to be released on the 20th anniversary of their debut. Said RZA:
“There’s one last job Wu-Tang Clan must do. The 20th anniversary [of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)] is next year. And we need to, one time, completely, efficiently, properly, professionally represent our brand. One more time. But this time, showing up on time for press and for concerts and studio. Do it one time, perfect.”
Additionally, Ghostface Killah recently revealed in an interview with MTV News that he had already recorded material for the possible album.
RZA has been in the press a lot recently for his directorial debut of the kung fu film The Man With the Iron Fists which opened in theaters on November 2nd. The film features a soundtrack of completely original music, on which members of Wu-Tang can often be found. One song, “Six Directions of Boxing”, manages to bring together six of the members.
These songs provide a taste of what the Wu-Tang Clan is still capable of, and if RZA can manage to get all of the members on the same page, it will be something to be excited about.
