Wu-Tang Clan member Cappadonna says ‘recording has begun’ on new album

It's all being done in the secret Wu-Tang Bat chamber,' says rapper

Wu Tang Clan member Cappadonna has revealed that the rap group have started work on a new studio album.

Earlier this week, Method Man said that the band were working on a new release to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their classic debut LP ‘Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)’ – and now, in an interview with Radio.com, Cappadonna has confirmed that “recording has begun” on a new LP.

“I already spoke to the RZA,” he said. “We’ve been texting each other. We’re definitely concentrating on more positivity and teachings and trying to put that back into the original recipe for this next Wu-Tang album.”

He went on to add: “The recording has begun. I’m on tour and I will be doing more recording for the Wu album in the next week or so. It’s all being done in the secret Wu-Tang Bat chamber. RZA has all the tracks lined up. There are recordings taking place in New York, LA and perhaps at the Wu mansion in New Jersey.

“A lot of the tracks are lined up and already there,” he concluded of the band’s recording process. “We all have to get a date and go there and submit verses. At that time, he [RZA] may give you a topic or you might hear something going on already. That’s how he designs the songs.”

Wu-Tang Clan released ‘Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)’ in November 1993. Their last studio album, ‘8 Diagrams’, was released in 2007 following a six-year gap from their 2001 LP ‘Iron Flag’. The hip-hop group are set to play this summer’s Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona, with Blur, Nick Cave And The Bad Seeds and My Bloody Valentine also on the bill.
