ALIVE & JAMMIN’

New tracks and Billy Joel covers on new single...

The Beastie Boys have confirmed details of the b-sides and video for their forthcoming single Alive, released on December 6 through Grand Royal/Parlaphone.

CD1 will feature ‘You And Me Together’ – a track written and produced by Adam Horowitz, a live version of Billy Joel’s ‘Big Shot’ and the video of ‘Alive’.

CD2, meanwhile, also features the video plus Bentley Rhythm Ace remix of ‘Alive’ and the Beasties version of The Jam’s ‘Start’ featuring Cibo Matto’s Miho Hatori.

The track’s video has been directed by Nathaniel Hornblower, Adam Yauch’s uncle and the man behind the ‘Body Movin” and ‘Intergalactic’ videos. The plot remains top secret but Yauch commented: “It was gruelling but the end result more than justified the means.”
