We hope we get this right.
As of last week, an announcement was made confirming that the Beastie Boys would not be releaseing their new album Hot Sauce Committee Part 1, for reasons unknown. However, though the disc was not to make it to shelves, the sequel to it, Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 was to be released in its place.
Following so far? Okay…
Now, sources are confirming that the songs from Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 will be put on Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 and will be called Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 instead of Hot Sauce Committee Part 1.
Got it? No? Let's see if Adam "MCA" Yauch can explain it better. He sent this email out to fans to try and clear up the confusion. He wrote:
"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. We just kept working and working on various sequences for part 2, and after a year and half of spending days on end in the sequencing room trying out every possible combination, it finally became clear that this was the only way to make it work. Strange but true, the final sequence for Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 works best with all its songs replaced by the 16 tracks we originally had lined up in pretty much the same order we had them in for Hot Sauce Committee Part 1. So we've come full circle."
After going around and around in circles!
So basically, they are only putting out one of the two discs they had planned and whenever that second one drops, it will be under a different name.
We think we're all caught up now!
Questions? Comments? Concerns? Inquires? Do you want fries with that?
