The Beastie Boys return to Europe in June for Bestival and a new album release. And despite wanting to name the record 'Thick Like Beyonce's Leg', the New Yorker's have settled on a rather toothless 'The Mix Up'.

Speaking to XFM, Mike Diamond explained "I think its gonna be called 'The Mix-Up', it's a little too sensible almost huh?

I was a big fan of the title 'Thick Like Beyonce's Leg' but that didn't make the final cut for some reason. Beyonce's very talented and beautiful and she's probably stronger than we are... We didn't want to have any problems with her."

Meanwhile the band have given details of 'The Mix Up' including a tracklisting:

1. Be For My Name
2. 14th St.Break
3. Suco De Tangerina
4. The Gala Event
5. Electric Worm
6. Freaky Hijiki
7. Off The Grid
8. The Rat Cage
9. The Melee
10. Dramastically Different
11. The Cousin Of Death
12. The Kangaroo Rat
