Sony Music Entertainment and Certified, the digital destination platform celebrating SME’s R&B and Hip-Hop catalogs, commemorate the 25th anniversary of Ironman, Wu-Tang Clan founding member Ghostface Killah’s archetypal solo debut, with the release of a new collectible 12″ vinyl anniversary pressing and an expanded digital edition of the album offering remixes, radio edits and instrumentals previously unavailable on DSPs. The Ironman 25 campaign will launch on Friday, October 29 with the release of the expanded digital edition and the beginning of 12″ vinyl pre-orders.
Ironman 25, the expanded digital reissue edition, includes the bonus track, “All That I Got Is You (Remix),” an electrifying new take on the album’s lead single. Originally released on September 22, 1996, “All That I Got Is You” was penned in honor of Ghostface’s mother and the single featured Mary J. Blige and Popa Wu. The original “All That I Got Is You” music video will be available for the first time on US streaming services on October 29.
SME/Certified will release a 25th anniversary video featuring Ghostface Killah talking about Ironman and its impact while the artist himself is the subject of a new episode of Certified’s “My Life in 60 Secs” mini-doc series.
To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Ghostface – Ironman, Get On Down will release two gatefold double vinyl color editions — “Chicken & Broccoli” and “Blue & Crème” — in early 2022. Details will be announced on the Ironman 25th anniversary date: October 29. Visit www.getondown.com to subscribe to their drop list and follow @shopgetondown on Instagram for more details.
Hot on the heels of a monumental Wu-Tang Clan (with the Colorado Symphony) performance at Red Rocks on August 13, GZA, Raekwon, and Ghostface Killah will join forces on The 3 Chambers Tour, with each Wu-Tang member performing a set centered around one of their epic solo albums: GZA’s Liquid Swords, Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx and Ghostface Killah’s Ironman. The 3 Chambers Tour kicks off at the Skyway Theater in Minneapolis on October 1 and closes at the Vogue in Indianapolis on December 18.
Ironman, the breakout solo debut album from Wu-Tang Clan founding member Ghostface Killah, was originally released by Epic Records on October 29, 1996. Produced by fellow Wu-Tang Clan member RZA, Ironman found inspiration in sources ranging from blaxploitation films to classic soul and charted a whole new direction for hip-hop in the process. The album peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hip Albums charts and has been certified platinum by the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America).
Born May 9, 1970, Dennis Coles went on to fame as Ghostface Killah, rapper, songwriter, actor and lead member of the Wu-Tang Clan, the groundbreaking and massively influential East Coast hip-hop ensemble formed on Staten Island, New York City, in 1992. Following the group’s phenomenal success in the wake of Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), Ghostface Killah and his fellow Wu-Tang members each followed their individual visions through parallel solo careers.
