Because You Haven’t Thought About Wu-Tang Clan In A While
I simply cannot imagine how this will work, but I actually wouldn’t be all that surprised to find that at the end of the day, they make money.
The CD case looks beautiful, and I’m willing to bet that there’s a fair amount of demand for new Wu-Tang. The whole “listening tour” thing seems very strange to me, but if they can incorporate other pleasant parts of the listening experience to sitting in a room with thirty other people listening to the album on headphones and attach a high level of social prestige to having participated in it, then yeah, it might work.
Hell, I’m giving them free press, just in admiration of the creativity, whether it works or not.
