The new collaboration came about after Sharleen Spiteri and RZA met up in Glasgow in 2020 during the filming of a documentary about the making of "Say What You Want."
"We decided we'd focus on one period in the band's life, a point that changed everyone's perception of what Texas was," Spitari told HMV
As part of that documentary, Spiteri and RZA sat down and chatted about the making of "Say What You Want" and that moment in their lives. At the end of their conversation, RZA suggested they do another track together.
Texas had already written "Hi," and Spitari looked at bassist and co-writer Johnny McElhone, who was off-camera, and said, "That's the song for him." She explained it has that classic "Ennio Morricone feel, that swagger."
RZA went away and worked on "Wu-Tanging" the Texas tune with bandmate Ghostface Killah. The track retains the pre-chorus from Texas' original demo, with RZA and Ghostface Killah each contributing verses.
