Beastie Boys Confirm Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 Info

The Beastie Boys have confirmed some additional details regarding its new album Hot Sauce Committee Part 2. According to the band, “In what can only be described as a bizarre coincidence, following an exhaustive re-sequence marathon, Beastie Boys have verified that their new Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 will be comprised of the same 16 tracks originally slated for inclusion on Hot Sauce Committee Part 1. The record (part 2 that is) will be released as planned in spring 2011 on Capitol. The tracks originally recorded for Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 (which now are actually back on Part 1) have now apparently been bumped to make room for the former Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 material.”

Santigold and Nas are among the guest vocalists on the 16-track album. Nas made a surprise appearance with the Beasties at Bonnaroo in 2009.

“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.” Adam “MCA” Yauch said in a statement. “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.”

Either this is a marketing ploy (which I think is funny), or they had some kind of weird contractual obligation to their record that included release deadlines, and by making a record named “Part 2” come out on time, they only get penalized for one record. Ah lawyers…
