Wu-Tang Clan has released a new song off their upcoming album The 8 Diagrams. The song is titled “The Heart Gently Weeps” and samples George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps.” However, it is not the first cleared Beatles sample as the Clan initially claimed. According to MTV, it’s a composition sample and not a master sample, meaning that the Wu did receive permission to use Harrison’s song, but not in its original, as-heard-on The White Album form. Look out for The 8 Diagrams on December 4th.
