Free Download: Beastie Boys "Electric Worm"


And now for something a little different.

Beastie Boys are back but not in the way you're used to. The trio's new album, titled "The Mix Up," is arguably one of their most unusual efforts yet. It's an all instrumental record with a collection of 12 funky jams all rooted in hip hop-inspired soul jazz.

"The Mix Up" is the group's seventh studio album that follows 2004's "To The 5 Boroughs." Touring that album led to their instrumental adventure. "The reason we started playing instruments after we did the 'To the 5 Boroughs,' an all rap record, we did a bunch of shows, that were just, ya know, 'rap shows,' and we missed playing our instruments so we started playing instruments and it just sort of happened," the group's Ad Rock says in an interview with musicOMH.com.

Check out a guilt-free download of the album's first single "Electric Worm" that features a lot of cool sounds including a funky bassline, cowbell and a '70s flick "waka waka" guitar. I bet the Beasties had fun with this one in the studio. Click here to download the entire album at 7Digital in DRM-free MP3 format. (Track posted with permission of EMI/Parlophone.
