Beastie Boys album to be released in fall 2010

According to a source at EMI/Capitol Records, the release date for the Beastie Boys' Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 1 has been pushed back further. The label is now projecting a September 2010 release date.

Label reps recently met with John Silva, the Beastie Boys' manager, to discuss the band's status. Silva told the label that he "didn't see the album coming out anytime soon because of Adam." Apparently, Adam Yauch needs more time for recovery. Whether that means Yauch is not doing well or he simply wants more time off for personal reasons is unknown. Let's hope that it's the latter.

It's been quiet lately. I had a feeling bad news was coming. I hope & pray the cancer didn't come back. Take care Yauch!

WTF??!! Please tell me Yauch is ok. I'm going to need anti-depressants soon to deal with this.

HOt Sauce - Is your source solid?

@Fittonia: The source is reliable.

This is disappointing news but not completely unexpected. We can wait a full year if we can wait 6 years for Hello Nasty. I hope Yauch is getting better.

Screw the wait for the album. It's our buddy Yauch who I'm thinking about.

I don't mind waiting longer if it means in September Yauch will have a hop in his skip when they do the weave.

Since Adam Yauch has been out in public for film events, he must be getting better. He probably needs more time to deal with the psychological effects of cancer. He deserves as long of a break as he wants.

I agree with Fittonia. Screw the album. Beastie Boys need Yauch to recover before they deal with anything else.
