Wu-Tang's Secret Double Album Reportedly Sells For Millions

(Radio.com) The mysterious Wu-Tang double-album, Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, has been sold to a private American collector, according to auction house Paddle8.

The precise cost of the album was not revealed but according to Paddle8, it will be "in the millions" making it the most expensive single album sold. Fans won't get to hear the music because there is an 88-year waiting period before it can be shared with the public.

'The Wu-Tang Clan have always been driven by innovation, and this marks another moment in musical history," said Wu-Tang cofounder RZA in the statement (via Forbes). 'From the beginning, we hoped that this concept would inspire debate and new ways of seeing creativity. Both of those goals have been achieved, and the ideas continue to evolve."

Back in March, Wu-Tang shared the news that they had been secretly working on the double-album, but confounded fans when they announced that there would only be a single copy of the album produced for one collector. Read more here.
