Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2 coverAfter several delays, the Beastie Boys' long-delayed album, Hot Sauce Committee Pt. 2, is now set to drop in May.

Despite an April release reported last month, the legendary hip-hop trio made it official on Sunday (March 13) when they announced it on their official website, writing: "Since the dawn of time, and perhaps even before, there was a silent order who were tasked with a mission. They held their secret tightly. On May 3rd the Hot Sauce Committee Part Two will be unleashed on the general public. Hold fast ye heathens."

After Adam Yauch's post, Mike D followed up on Monday (March 14) with a post of his own, in which he unveiled the album's cover art, which is a mish-mash of brightly colorful squares that look like a pixelated collage.

They didn't elaborate on the artwork.
