Ghostface Killah has revealed that he has recorded tracks for a new Wu Tang Clan album.

The rapper told MTV News that while he was laying down tracks for the follow-up to his 2000 solo album 'Supreme Clientele', titled 'The Wally Era', he went into the studio to record songs for a potential new Wu-Tang Clan album.

Revealing that the album could be out by November 2013, Ghostface Killah said: "While I was doin' my 'Supreme Clientele' shit, the second one, 'The Wally Era', I was doin' joints for the next Wu album."

Last month, Wu-Tang Clan's RZA said he wanted to put the band back together to mark the 20th anniversary of their critically acclaimed debut album, 'Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)'.

The producer admitted they worked best, in his opinion, when the rest of the group allowed him to be "a dictator". "['Wu-Tang Forever' was] the first democratic album. And then after that, it kept getting more and more – 'Well, it’s your album, what do you want to do? You want to hire P Diddy? Whatever you want to do, help yourself. It’s your [thing],'" he said.

It appears RZA's tough stance on a reformation appears to be working, as Ghostface Killah added that he is ready to give complete control of the direction of a new Wu-Tang album to the producer. "He knows what it takes to go ahead and get there. He done studied the game now," said Ghost.

'Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)' made Wu-Tang Clan cult favourites around the world. There are currently two biopics based on the life of deceased member Ol' Dirty Bastard in production.
