It’s been a mere two years but the Beastie Boys are already crowing about a new album.

Beastie Boys are not necessarily renowned for being prolific. They’ve released six studio albums in fourteen years and only three in the last twelve, but Canada’s Jam! site reports that they’re already in the studio for a follow up to 2004’s ‘To The Five Boroughs’.

Their last album was an old-skool throwback to their roots, and disappointed many fans who were looking for a more adventurous effort to follow 1998’s eclectic ‘Hello Nasty’. Ad Rock told Jam! that their next album will be their “best ever”. But he would say that, wouldn’t he.

Although the band are in the studio, planning on self-producing this new effort, they haven’t settled on a title and Mike D professed that they are still in the “messing around” stage.

The band recently released a DVD called ‘Awesome: I F***in’ Shot That’, where live footage of a Madison Square Garden set from 2004 was edited from 50 fans who were given digital videos to shoot the event.
