The Black Keys and Wu-Tang Clan's RZA collaborate on new song – listen

'The Baddest Man Alive' features on the soundtrack for kung-fu film 'The Man With The Iron Fists'

The Black Keys and RZA of the Wu Tang Clan have teamed up for a new song, 'The Baddest Man Alive'.

The song is taken from the soundtrack to the forthcoming movie The Man With The Iron Fists, which was written and directed by RZA, real name Robert Fitzgerald Diggs.

The kung-fu movie is set for a US release next month (November 2).

The Black Keys and RZA have collaborated before, on 2009's 'Blakroc' album, which also saw the blues rock duo teaming up with Mos Def, Q-Tip, Raekwon, Ludacris and Pharoahe Monch.

The album also featured vocals from the late Wu-Tang Clan member Ol' Dirty Bastard.

The Black Keys return to the UK later this year for a full arena tour. They will kick off their six-date trek at Newcastle Metro Radio Arena on December 7, before playing Glasgow SECC on November 8, Birmingham NIA on December 9 and Manchester Arena on December 11. The tour will conclude at London's O2 Arena on December 12 and 13.
