Beastie Boys unveil new details about upcoming LP
Thursday 28 October 2010
In a press release on October 25, hip-hop legends Beastie Boys revealed the tracklisting for their first full-length album since 2007's instrumental
The Mix-Up. The new album is titled
Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 and is due out next spring.
The band members recently reported that they weren't quite ready to release the expected Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 LP, which was originally due out September 2009. But now they plan to drop Part 2 prior to Part 1, and stated that Part 2 will comprise the same 16 tracks originally slated for inclusion on Hot Sauce Committee Part 1. That is, minus the song "Bundt Cake." Confused yet?
"I know it's weird and confusing, but at least we can say unequivocally that Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 is coming out on time, which is more than I can say about Part 1, and really is all that matters in the end," stated the group's Adam "MCA" Yauch.
The new album will include a collaboration with rapper Nas titled "Too Many Rappers," which released in July 2009 and was nominated for a Grammy Award. Other tracks include a collaboration with rapper Santigold ("Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win") as well as "Tadlock's Glasses," "B-Boys In The Cut," "Make Some Noise," "Nonstop Disco Powerpack," "OK," and "Lee Majors Come Again."
Formed in 1981, Beastie Boys were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. Their 1986 debut album Licensed To Ill became the first hip hop record to reach number one on the US Billboard chart. The band has won three Grammy Awards and received critical acclaim for its albums such as Check Your Head, Ill Communication, and Hello Nasty, the latter of which hit number one in charts in the US, the UK, and Australia.
