Pictured is the cover art for the album, which was revealed via Capitol Records’ website.
The press release also includes a track listing, which confirms features from Nas and Santigold, and a release date of May 3.

UPDATE: The Beastie Boys have released the following statement, “Good people, unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, the ‘clean’ version of our new album, The Hot Sauce Committee, Part 2 has leaked. So as a hostile and retaliatory measure with great hubris we are making the full explicit aka filthy dirty nasty version available for streaming on our site. We hope this brings much happiness, hugs, and harmony. Enjoy. Kikoos for life! Thank you.”
