RZA Releases New Wu-Tang Clan Song from ‘The Man with the Iron Fists’ Soundtrack

RZA‘s Quentin Tarantino-produced martial arts flick, The Man with the Iron Fists, hits theaters on November 2, but fans can hear a new Wu-Tang Clan song from the soundtrack right now, along with a few other goodies. The rapper/producer turned writer/director/actor shared “Six Directions of Boxing” today, a soul-seething banger featuring, in this order: U-God, Ghostface Killah, GZA, Masta Killa, Cappadonna, and Inspectah Deck. The beat comes from Frank Dukes, who put in work on Danny Brown’s excellent XXX and also contributed to SPIN’s Newermind Nirvana tribute album. No Method Man or Raekwon here, but they do appear on the soundtrack album along with Kanye West, the Black Keys, Freddie Gibbs, Pusha T, Brown, and more.

“Six Directions” arrives now to promote RZA’s soundtrack and score (the latter made with composer Howard Drossin), which will be available October 23 in a variety of formats, including a “Deluxe Ultra Pak” that, for $85, is actually kind of a score (no pun intended). That will include five CDs — an autographed copy of the Wu-heavy soundtrack, a copy of the score, an additional disc featuring the soundtrack instrumentals, and a double-disc set of RZA-picked funk and soul tracks from Stax Records that inspired the score and “the classic sound of the Wu-Tang Clan” — plus the soundtrack on double colored vinyl, a 7-inch single, two posters, and, of course, a Bobby Digital-approved download of all 70 tracks…
