Wu-Tang Clan put their latest album “The Wu-Once Upon a Time in Shaolin”, up for auction. Yesterday, they received their highest offer of $5 million dollars. This article spoke out to me because it made me think why more artists are not doing this? We hear of it every now and then, but just seems like a no brainer to offer something very exclusive and very expensive for your fans. We have all seen artists offer high end – expensive, limited packages with a new album release, but we have not seen many auctions.
This is a 31- track album which was secretly recorded over the past few years. Oddly, this also features FC Barcelona soccer players according to their website.
We will have to wait and see how far up the auction will go!
