Listen to Wu-Tang Clan’s new single “Keep Watch”

on March 18, 2014, 10:00pm

Wu-Tang Clan have released the lead single to their upcoming album, A Better Tomorrow. Entitled “Keep Watch”, the track features GZA, Method Man, Cappadonna, and Inspectah Deck, along with guest vocals from a singer named Nathaniel. It’s available for purchase via Wu Music Group’s webstore and streaming at RapExclusive.

With its mono beat of low-key guitars and thudding drums, “Keep Watch” would be right at home in the Wu’s early ’90s discography. Between spurts of soulful harmonies from Nathaniel, GZA, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, and Cappadonna each take a turn on the mic, collaborating as much as they are attempting to outdo their fellow Monks. So, who snags the golden (throwing) star for best lyrical contribution? Give that to Method Man for making references to Leonard Nimoy sound totally brooding.

Wu Music’s store also includes a separate pre-order page for A Better Tomorrow and notes that the album “is in the works and almost ready to ship.” It also includes some artwork, though it’s unclear if that’s the actual cover.

As previously reported, the album coincides with Wu-Tang’s 20th anniversary and marks their first new album in seven years. All the core Wu-Tang members appear to be involved in the project with the exception of Raekwon, who previously expressed misgivings over the business side of things. And based on the tweet he made following the song’s release, he still doesn’t appear ready to jump on board.
