Wu-Tang Clan are back once again with a new single released out of nowhere. “Keep Watch” features Nathaniel, and the singer-songwriter lays down a cool chorus amidst expertly executed Killa Bee verses. Wu have been floating under the radar recently after months of speculation surrounding a new album being on its way, but with this hot new joint they’ve showed it always pays to “Keep Watch” on the Clan. Produced by DJ Mathematics, the old skool vibes embedded in this banger have been described by Wu Music Group as the result of a “Classic 90’s Mono Beat” while the crisp vocals have been referred to as “lyrical dart throwing content”.
It’s no surprise that musically, “Keep Watch” looks back to Wu-Tang’s era of dominance, but despite a 1993 price tag of $1.99 and no SoundCloud upload, their evergreen sounds continue to Shaolin-style kick the competition's head off effortlessly. This is the first single from the upcoming album A Better Tomorrow, which is being advertised as a 20th anniversary celebration. Despite some confusion over Raekwon and Ghostface’s contribution stirred up in a Grantland interview with RZA a while back, Wu Music’s website is taking pre-orders for the record which is “in the works and almost ready to ship.” You can stream “Keep Watch” below and buy it at this link.
