Always looking to create unique experiences for his fans, RZA partnered with us to come up with a novel way to release Wu-Tang Clan’s 20th anniversary album, “A Better Tomorrow.” Forgoing the traditional model of music distribution, we decided to embed several songs from the album directly into a Boombot REX and release the unit before the general album release date.
Units will start shipping November 14th with “A Better Tomorrow Special Play” embedded onto it. The general release of the album will be at a later date. People who purchase this unit will be the first to hear Wu-Tang Clan’s latest installment. Additionally the song “Big Horn B” will only be available through a Boombot REX.
Only 1,000 units will be made available for sale on Boombotix.com. The other 2,000 units will be available through Zumiez.
The Boombot REX is still a functional Bluetooth speaker and can play music of your choosing.
“There’s something transcendent about being able to physically hold music,” says RZA. “Back in the day, holding a vinyl helped you appreciate just how much time and sweat goes into creating a single track, let alone an entire album. Over the last decade, we’ve lost that sensation. With this project, we hope to strengthen the bond between fan and artist. Boombotix puts the music back in your hands so you can stay connected to your favorite artists wherever you go.”
