Beastie Boys' Ad-Rock hooks up with Rival Schools for new song

Adam Horowitz has mixed a song for the rockers

Beastie Boys' Adam 'Ad-Rock' Horowitz has mixed a new song by Rival Schools, the band's guitarist Walter Schreifels has revealed.

The song, named '69 Guns', could feature on the US rockers' forthcoming album, set for release this summer (currently untitled). Schreifels told Rock Sound that a sporting connection between the rapper and Rival Schools drummer Sam Siegler resulted in the collaboration.

"Sam plays basketball with Adam and he said, ‘Hey, will you mix a song?’ and Adam said yes," he explained. "It could go on the album, it depends how good the mix is.

“It might just be interesting because Ad-Rock did it, or it could be brilliant! I think he’s a talent, but I haven’t heard it. It’s cool that he’s doing it – he sent me an email saying he had an idea for it.

"We’re thinking of it as a single. I have no idea what a single is these days, but it’s got a good beat and it could be played at a rock disco."
