(RNN) - One Wu-Tang Clan fan will have the chance to own a very rare item from the legendary group.

According to Forbes, the crew recorded the top secret album titled The Wu: Once Upon A Time In Shaolin that will be sold to a single buyer for an asking price starting at $1 million, but is expected to be a multi-million dollar deal.

Yes. One copy sold to one person. For millions of dollars.

The album has taken four years to record and will be sold in a one-of-a-kind engraved silver and nickel box made by British Moroccan artist Yahya.

"We're about to sell an album like nobody else sold it before," Wu-Tang member Robert "RZA" Diggs, told Forbes. "We're making a single-sale collector's item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king. We're about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of [modern] music."

The plan is for the 128 minute, 31 song record to tour museums that will provide listening stations before being sold. An entrance fee will likely cost $30 to $50 - and will only be able to listen to the album once.

RZA said there was much thought put into the interesting release of the LP.

"The idea that music is art has been something we advocated for years and yet its doesn't receive the same treatment as art in the sense of the value of what it is, especially nowadays when it's been devalued and diminished to almost the point that it has to be given away for free," he said.

Wu-Tang Clan's reunion album, A Better Tomorrow is reportedly scheduled to drop in July.
