The Beastie Boys Reveal Track Listing for "Hot Sauce Committee Part 2"
Tue, 26 Oct 2010 13:26:35
Get ready to be confused! In what can only be described as a bizarre coincidence, following an exhaustive re-sequencing, The Beastie Boys have verified that their new Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 album will be comprised of the same 16 tracks originally slated for inclusion on Hot Sauce Committee Part 1.
Pay attention: Part 2 will be released as planned in spring 2011 on Capitol. The tracks originally recorded for Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 now are actually back on Part 1 and have now apparently been bumped to make room for the former Hot Sauce Committee Part 1 material. What a mess, Beasties! Why are you trying to make our brains hurt? It's not fair.
What I have gleaned from the press statement is that Part 2 will feature the songs planned for Part 1 and the songs that were created for Part 2 have been bumped to Part 1, which will come out after Part 2. So Part 2 is now Part 1 without the name change. Someone get me an Imitrex for this migraine. Stat.
"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." said Adam "MCA" Yauch in a press 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."
Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 marks Yauch, Mike "Mike D" Diamond and Adam "Ad Rock" Horovitz's first full length effort since 2007's Grammy winning all-instrumental The Mix-Up. The new track listing of the album is now as follows:
1. Tadlock's Glasses
2. B-Boys In The Cut
3. Make Some Noise
4. Nonstop Disco Powerpack
6. Too Many Rappers (featuring NAS)
7. Say It
8. The Bill Harper Collection
9. Don't Play No Game That I Can't Win (featuring Santigold)
10. Long Burn The Fire
11. Funky Donkey
12. Lee Majors Come Again
13. Multilateral Nuclear Disarmament
14. Pop Your Balloon
15. Crazy Ass Shit
16. Here's A Little Something For Ya
The exact release date of Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 and touring plans will be announced once details are available.
