Earlier today, Wu-Tang Clan dropped a new track with Redman called “People Say”. Now, the legendary rap group has revealed a new album, Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues, due October 13th on Entertainment One and RZA’s 36 Chambers ALC lifestyle company. The project is executive produced by RZA with longtime Wu-Tang affiliate Mathematics “crafting” the beats.

In a press statement, RZA explained the origins of the album. “For years, Math has had the idea of putting together a body of music using modern and legendary equipment such as ASR10 with vocal performances by Wu-Tang Clan members and other prominent MCs,” he said. “With The Saga Continues he’s created a masterpiece. We at 36 Chambers ALC are honored to work with Mathematics and Wu-Tang Clan to put out a great piece of art.”
