'The Man With The Iron Fists' Soundtrack Details Drop, New Tunes From Kanye West, Wu-Tang Clan, Black Keys & More

Amidst all the hoity-toity awards fare and sober dramas this fall, RZA will storm theaters with his directorial debut “The Man With The Iron Fists.” The film, which looks to be a wickedly over the top martial arts flick delivered the way only a member of the Wu-Tang Clan knows how, will unsurprisingly feature a heavy duty soundtrack to go with it.

The tracklist has dropped for the upcoming disc which will be released via RZA‘s new Soul Temple Records, and he explains the unique approach he took. “We went and got some of The Wu-Tang original songs…we took out a lot of stuff that was in it, and we re-orchestrated it,” RZA said. “Stax also came on board to help us out, and they gave me about 10 of their famous Stax cues, songs from William Bell, from Isaac Hayes, from Mable John. So you’re going to have a great time listening to this movie as a soundtrack.” Um, holy shit yes.

So who are you gonna hear against that potentially awesome sonic backdrop? How about Black Keys, Kanye West, Pusha T, Talib Kweli, Method Man, Corinne Bailey Rae and more. And oh yeah, a classic cut by Mable John too. Sounds fine by us. “The Man With Iron Fists” soundtrack will drop digitally on October 23rd with the film arriving on November 2nd.
