Beastie Boys hoping to release 'Hot Sauce…' album in September
Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch has said that his recovery from cancer is going well, and that he hopes that the band will release their next album 'Hot Sauce Committee Part I' in September.

The record had been scheduled to be released last year, but was delayed due to Yauch being treated for cancer of the preaortic gland and lymph node. Now the rapper says that his health is getting on track, and the band are looking to tweak the album before finally releasing it.

"I feel better," Yauch told Entertainment Weekly. "It was touch and go there for a while, but I am finally getting my energy back."

He added, "It was really disappointing to have to hold the record and postpone the tour, but doctor’s orders. We may or may not [release 'Hot Sauce Committee Part I'] depending on how my health is come September. We want to but we have to play it by ear."

Speaking about how the band may make a few changes before releasing the album, he said, "I was just talking to Adam [Horovitz, fellow band member] and Mike [D] today on the phone and we were talking about working on it a bit.

"We finished the record over a year ago, so we want to take a look at it and re-evaluate and make sure it is what we want to put out there and that we are still happy with it. I don't think we will change it up too much."
