An anonymous American buyer has purchased Wu-Tang Clan’s single copy of their new and final album, ‘Once Upon A Time In Shaolin,’ in an online auction for an undisclosed amount.
Presented in an elaborately ornate silver and nickel plated box, alongside a manuscript with all the lyrics, the album includes 31 tracks and certain conditions.
Presumably, the sold album is the only copy in existence, so the lucky buyer will have the huge responsibility of not letting anything happen to it, since all the digital copies have all been destroyed.
On the upside, whoever purchased it will also hold the rights to all the songs. They will however not be allowed to release it to the general public, at least until the copyright runs out after 88 years, so we might just have to wait that long to listen to the entire album.
