Beastie Boys Release An Album, Confuse The World

Filed under: Music Minute

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?

Phew!!

We were extremely upset to hear last year that Beastie Boys rapper Adam "MCA" Yauch was diagnosed with a salivary gland tumor, but we're thrilled to report now that he is on his way to making a full recovery!!

And the band is ready to get working again on their new album, Hot Sauce Committee, Part 1, which was postponed indefinitely after Yauch's diagnosis!!

He says:

“I feel better. It was touch and go there for a while, but I am finally getting my energy back. It was really disappointing to have to hold the record and postpone the tour, but doctor’s orders. We may or may not [release the album] depending on how my health is come September. We want to but we have to play it by ear. I was just talking to Adam [Horovitz] and Mike [D] today on the phone and we were talking about working on it a bit. We finished the record over a year ago, so we want to take a look at it and re-evaluate and make sure it is what we want to put out there and that we are still happy with it. I don’t think we will change it up too much.”

We're relieved you're feeling better, bb, and anxiously awaiting your new album!!

Stay healthy!!
