Beastie Boys‘ Adam ‘Ad-Rock Horovitz’ has joked that the band are “bummed” that their new album ‘Hot Sauce Committee Pt 2’ didn’t leak online far ahead of its release.
Although the rappers completed work on their eighth studio album a couple of years ago and were going to release the original ‘Part 1’ version of it in 2009, they were forced to delay the LP’s release after rapper Adam Yauch was diagnosed with throat cancer.
Speaking in the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands now or available digitally, Horovitz said: “I’m bummed that nobody leaked anything. What’s up with that? Nobody wants to leak our shit anymore? Come on.”
Horovitz also joked that the trio need to “get some less trustworthy people around them” when they need record an album. He also gave another update on Yauch‘s battle with cancer, saying his bandmate was “getting better” and though he was still in treatment, “things were going good.”
