The Beastie Boys are looking to mix things up for their vocal version of the all-instrumental already released album The Mix-Up, and are hoping to tap some outside voices to join them, reports Billboard.
According to Adam "MCA" Yauch, the Boys are "talking to some different artists who might do kinda like remixes and put vocals on it, so it wouldn't be us doing vocals on it. It would be kind of like a different version of the album, with a bunch of people guesting on it." Among the artists they're checking out for the project are Lily Allen, M.I.A. and Pulp's Jarvis Cocker.
But that's not all! The band also hopes to add a visual aspect to the next incarnation of The Mix-Up. Yach said, "We've been traveling with a Super 8 camera, and a lot of times we'll just make something. While we were in Singapore we filmed stuff, and in Australia and different places. We're talking about cutting it together into a full-length film that kinda goes the length of the album."
Awesome. This is so much cooler than doing an album and then just doing club remixes of all the songs. I can't wait for the next Mix-Up!
