Beastie Boys announced the release on their Twitter account. “Hello everybody,” they wrote. “To the 5 Boroughs came out 15 years ago today. For the occasion, twelve rare tracks have just been released digitally in addition to the original 15 songs on the album.”
Last month, surviving Beastie Boys Michael Diamond (Mike D) and Adam Horovitz (King Ad-Rock) released a mini-documentary on Amazon Music commemorating the 25th anniversary of their fourth studio album, 1994’s Ill Communication. In 2018, Diamond and Horovitz published Beastie Boys Book, a massive tome featuring career-spanning anecdotes. More recently, Mike D and Ad-Rock embarked on a Spike Jonze-directed book tour following the memoir.
