Wu-Tang Clan to Release Single Copy of their Next Album

http://pitchfork.com/news/54518-wu-tang-clan-announce-another-new-album-once-upon-a-time-in-shaolin/

Rap group Wu-Tang Clan has been working on a new album of late (very later as a matter of fact, it was first proposed in 1997) called Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, however this album will be unique in that only 1 copy of it will ever be released. No digital downloads, no youtube release, one vinyl, thats it. The idea is that it will become an instant collector’s piece and will be a unique entity all its own (and it seems to be working, as fans have come together to attempt to pool 5 million dollars with which to purchase the album). This is an interesting decision, especially in the world of digital media sharing as it exists today, where a single person leaking an album means that the entire world can hear it almost instantly.
