Imagine waiting for almost 88 years to hear the album that’s creating all the hype in the world. Read on to know more!
Home is where the record player is”, and all-vinyl record collectors will support it. Once used widely since Taylor Swift was born is now stored to maintain the aesthetic of that pleasing-looking shelf with books. Vinyl Records are the first thing to come to mind while speaking of the music industry. Even today, some music lovers hold a charming collection of Vinyl by the most amazing singers of all time. Honestly, the joy of adding to the collection is something that only hoarders would understand. Speaking of additions, this time around in ‘Object of Desire’ we have the most expensive vinyl record ever sold at $2 Million, Once Upon A Time by Wu-Tang Clan.
The album is marked as a legend in history. After working on it for almost six years, Wu-Tang Clan only produced one single copy of the ‘Once Upon A Time’ album with 31 tracks. What’s even more intriguing is due to its legal restrictions the current owner of the album cannot release it and the commercial release of the album is only possible in 2103, which is almost 88 years since its finalization in 2015.
To give you something while you wait for the release, all members of the group, Wu-Tang Clan—RZA, GZA, Inspectah Deck, Method Man, Raekwon the Chef, Ghostface Killah, U-God, Masta Killa, and Cappadonna appear on the tracklist. Apart from this, the group has a symbolic meaning to the length of time the group started with eight members, the digits in the year 2015 add up to eight which also represents the symbol of infinity.
Wu-Tang came up with the idea by keeping in mind the data consumption and rise of music. The album was locked away in a vault at the Royal Mansour Hotel in Marrakech, Morocco. The box was made of nickel and silver-plated material and looked gorgeous. The group managed to make the album a rare portrait rather than pop. Well, fans seem to be eagerly waiting but we believe the album ‘Once Upon A Time’ will be heard by their grandchildren. People out there who value music would definitely understand and reimagine the way they look at music. Also remember, there is romance in singing about a Vinyl.
