Seminal hip-hop group the Beastie Boys have confirmed the long-awaited follow up to 1998's 'Hello Nasty' will be with us later this year.
Speaking to BBC Radio 1, MC Mike D said it would be another eclectic affair, but with strong hip-hop roots:
"This record is all hip-hop. We've been working for a little while in a secret location," Mike D. said. "But there's light at the end of the tunnel and we're mixing now so it's almost complete."
"The record that we're making is like a hip-hop record, but that doesn't mean we're only checking for hip-hop right now. Everything we like, that's cool, is going to enter the arena."
He also added that British influences were also prevalent: "We actually have a British song on our album, you're gonna have to wait and see - just leave it at that. We'll unleash it on you, but it's a very British-centric - whatever you'd call it - type of song."
A June release date has been hinted.
