Wu-Tang Clan and Dhani Harrison sample The Beatles

The Wu-Tang Clan have recorded their own version of George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”.

Rather than a straight cover version, the “White Album” original forms a basis for the Wu-Tang Clan’s own song, titled “Gently Weeps”, which features acoustic guitar work from Harrison’s son, Dhani.

Red Hot Chili Peppers’ guitarist John Frusciante is also set to tackle lead guitar on the track, taken from Wu-Tang Clan’s forthcoming album.

“8 Diagrams”, the follow-up to 2001’s “Iron Flag”, is set for release on November 13.
