2009 marks the 20th anniversary of the Beastie Boys critically acclaimed Paul’s Boutique. This is the album that gave us “Shake Your Rump”, “Egg Man” and “Hello Brooklyn”. To celebrate the occasion EMI is re-releasing the record in all manner of formats beyond Tuesday’s exclusive digital release on beastieboys.com.
The digital release comes packed with five videos as well as 3D interactive album art. For those of us that still love our stereo systems, CD and vinyl releases follow next week on February 10th. Oh, and Beastie Boys will also be headlining at Bonnaroo this year too. Bet they’ll be performing a lot of these songs.
