‘Beastie Boys Music’ is described as “a companion piece” to this year’s Spike Jonze-directed Beastie Boys Story and 2018’s Beastie Boys Book.
Check out the tracklist below:
‘So What’cha Want’
‘Shake Your Rump’
‘Make Some Noise’
‘Ch-Check It Out’
‘Pass The Mic’
‘Don’t Play No Game’
‘Hold It Now, Hit It’
‘Get It Together’
Earlier this year, Spike Jonze released a 256-page photo book focusing on the iconic trio. Titled Beastie Boys, the book contains over two hundred of the Academy Award-winning director’s personal photos shot during his time spent with the group.
The surviving members of Beastie Boys had been due to appear at South By Southwest (SXSW) Festival in Austin, Texas earlier this year to promote Beastie Boys Story, but the event was cancelled due to the coronavirus crisis.
Meanwhile, Public Enemy have revealed the track-listing for ‘What You Gonna Do When The Grid Goes Down?’, their first album on Def Jam records in over two decades, which features appearances from Mike D and Ad-Rock of Beastie Boys.
