In an email at 3am this morning, the Beastie Boys sent out an email with two pieces of information.
First, the new album is out next spring, as originally planned - which is an interesting point for them to make.
The other bit of news, which is somehow not too shocking, is that "Hot Sauce Committee Pt 1" has been shelved indefinitely. But what about that Nas collaboration, and the other preview the Boys dropped on Record Store Day? Um, can you say deluxe reissue in 2031?
