A representative for Cher recently verified that the singer recorded vocals for two songs on an upcoming album by the veteran rap act Wu-Tang Clan.
“She recorded her parts separately, so I don’t believe there was direct interaction,” the rep told Rolling Stone.
Earlier this year, the official site for the album, titled The Wu — Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, left a hint regarding Cher’s contributions, stating there would be “special guest appearances by Bonnie Jo Mason.” Savvy Cher fans might recall that in 1964, under the billing Bonnie Jo Mason, she released a Sonny Bono-less single called “Ringo, I Love You,” a tribute to Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.
Hearing Cher’s work with Wu-Tang Clan will require some effort, though. The group is only pressing one copy of The Wu — Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, and prior to it being sold — with bidding reported already at the $5 million mark — the album will make the rounds at museums, galleries and festivals worldwide for headphone listening.
