Upcoming Album of the Week (Ending August 26)

It was my 30th birthday this weekend, on Friday to be exact. My weekend has been filled with good friends, celebrations, and the impending dread that life is pretty much over (just kidding). I've been blessed to have a pretty good life, and to have a few dedicated readers of this blog. To those of you out there reading this, I thank you, and remind you to check out my Upcoming Releases page!

This week, the RZA announced a new album, Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues.

Though not billed as a Wu-Tang Clan album, many members of the legendary hip hop group will appear on the record. As a group, they released their last widely-available album, A Better Tomorrow, in 2014. They did follow that up in 2015 with Once Upon a Time in Shoalin, but only released one copy of the album and sold it ’to the highest bidder.

That album saw them become mired in a controversy not of their own making because that buyer was the much-beloved [*sarcasm*] Martin Shkreli. The band placed 88-year commercial ban on the record (not all members were on board with that decision). With that ban coming to an end in 2103, it's unlikely any of us will ever hear the record.

The new album was announced on Friday along with a new track, "People Say".

Beck - Colors (October 13)
The Jet Age of Tomorrow - God’s Poop or Clouds? (September 15)
Karl Blau - Out Her Space (November 17)
