With the notable exception of their instrumental opus The Mix-Up from 2007, the Beastie Boys haven’t released a proper new album since To the 5 Buroughs launched back in 2003, and their latest record has a genesis that is nothing if not unusual.

Regardless of its bizarre origins it is truly great to have them back, and we’re clearly not the only people who feel that way; check out the music video below if you fancy playing a very enjoyable game of spot the celeb…
