Ad-Rock, the former Beastie Boys member, just released a remix of Spoon’s cowbell-heavy “Can I Sit Next To You”, off the group’s ninth studio album, last year’s Hot Thoughts.While Hot Thoughts already showed the Austin, Texas-based indie-rock band exploring more funk-inspired stylings, the Beastie Boy rapper heightens this vibe with his remix of “Can I Sit Next To You”. In Ad-Rock’s reimagining of the Spoon song, the rapper, guitarist, and actor reconstructs “Can I Sit Next To You”, isolating the song’s propulsive and prominent bass and drums and the airy vocals laid out by Spoon singer Britt Daniel and relayering them.Currently, Spoon has plans to tour with Grizzly Bear for seven shows in June, spanning from June 18th to June 30th, in addition to an upcoming leg of their current tour, which begins on May 13th in Nashville. As for Ad-Rock, he has teamed with Mike D, the other surviving member of the Beastie Boys, to release a memoir due out in the fall. The highly anticipated book has been in the works since 2013.You can take a listen to Ad-Rock’s remix of Spoon’s “Can I Sit Next To You” below.Spoon – “Can I Sit Next To You” (Ad-Rock Remix)[H/T Rolling Stone]
