In an exclusive interview with NME, the Beastie Boys revealed that their upcoming album will be titled The Mix Up. Band member Mike D revealed that the album will be more rock-oriented than their last outing, To the 5 Boroughs—more in line with the old-school style of Check Your Head and Paul's Boutique.
"We play instruments on the whole album, as opposed to sampling," Mike said. "There's more rock on there. If you know us you can trace the influences and they're not completely surprising. Someone who listens to us casually might think, 'What the hell are these guys doing?'"
