NEW YORK — The Beastie Boys want it all on the record.
The iconic hip-hop group has a deal with Spiegel & Grau, an imprint of Random House Inc., for an illustrated oral history. The currently untitled book is scheduled for fall 2015.
Spiegel & Grau says the book will track the band’s rise from its high school years in New York City to its induction in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.
The publisher says “world-famous writers and cultural figures” will be interviewed for the project.
The book will be organized by surviving band members Michael Diamond (Mike D) and Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock) with the help of hip-hop writer and editor Sacha Jenkins. Adam Yauch (MCA) died last year.
