RZA has been dedicated to dreaming up creative roll out plans for Wu-Tang Clan projects recently, and he really thought about every detail -- down to the album cover -- this time. The crew revealed the artwork for A Better Tomorrow on Tuesday, and it's an animated one.
The A$AP Mob experimented with GIFs on their Lord$ Never Worry mixtape cover, but the Wu kicks it up a notch with this one. The artwork begins with a mixed city skyline -- incorporating signature construction from New York, Paris, London and more -- and we slowly watch the clouds morph into the "Wu" signal in the sky.
Pretty impressive. So 2014.
For this new project, the crew plans to release exclusive material on a Wu-edition boombox that fans can purchase. “The full-length album should be available by Black Friday. It’s a record to me that merges the way music was made in the classic essence, in an analog way,” RZA revealed recently. “As well as merging what’s going down the digital way. All the entire 10 Clan members are on it.”
