Beastie Boys have offered up fans an opportunity to hear their new album before it hits stores on May 3rd, 2011. The legendary rappers released this message this afternoon:
“Good people, unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, the “clean” version of our new album, The Hot Sauce Committee pt 2 has leaked. So as a hostile and retaliatory measure with great hubris we are making the full explicit aka filthy dirty nasty version available for streaming on our site. We hope this brings much happiness, hugs, and harmony. Enjoy Kikoos for life! Thank You.”
Produced by Beastie Boys and mixed by Philippe Zdar, the record will mark Mike“Mike D” Diamond, Adam “Ad Rock” Horovitz and Adam “MCA” Yauch’s first full length effort since 2007’s Grammy-winning all-instrumental The Mix-Up. The Beastieboys.com pre-order for Hot Sauce Committee Part Two is live now, featuring multiple configurations and bonus items exclusive to the band’s own pre-sale.
