RZA Announces New Album, 'Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues'
A new Wu-Tang album (kinda)
While certainly a welcomed return to form, it was a curious, seemingly random transmission from the Shaolin crew with no preemptive notice. Today, RZA has filled in the blanks, announcing the new Wu-Tang compilation, The Saga Continues. Comprising vocal performances from every member except GZA and U God, the album is entirely produced by Mathematics and is slated to arrive on October 13th via 36 Chambers ALC, a new lifestyle company founded by RZA and Mustafa Shaikh. Previously, RZA had stated that Ghostface Killah would be at the helm of the next Wu-Tang album, so there’s hope that we may still hear a proper follow-up to their 2014 album, A Better Tomorrow.
Until then, you can hear “People Say” in this week’ s installment of The Round-Up below. Stay tuned for their next transmission in the weeks and months ahead. Scroll on for their full slate of fall tour dates.
