Selling Just One Copy Of An Album

March 29, 2014 in Daily Bulletin

The hip-hop group Wu-Tang Clan is planning to release just a single version of their latest album writes Zack O’Malley Greenburg:

  • In addition to releasing a 20th anniversary album Wu-Tang Clan will be releasing a super-limited edition of a separate album that they recorded at the same time.
  • Only one copy of the limited edition album will be sold. It will come packaged in a silver and nickel box crafted by an artist.
  • Before it is sold it will go on a listening tour visiting museums, galleries and music festivals.
  • At these venues individuals will have the chance to listen to the album on headphones – after they’ve aggressively been checked to ensure they have no recording devices.
  • The album is ultimately expected to be sold for several million dollars.
  • Perhaps the world will be lucky and somebody who intends to widely distribute the album will buy it. Or perhaps it’ll be bought by a private collector who chooses not to release it.
