The Beastie Boys’ Adam “MCA” Yauch is making his much-anticipated return after a bout with cancer. The rap trio was forced to cancel a 2009 tour and delay their next album when Yauch was diagnosed with a cancerous tumor. He broke the news to fans in a YouTube video and proceeded with treatment while the Boys went on hiatus. A year and a half later, bandmate Mike D is telling BBC Radio in a new interview that MCA has not only recovered, he’s back in the studio.

The Beastie Boys are recording Hot Sauce Committee, a double-album dropping in the spring. The group have no plans for a tour yet, but will be making an appearance at the Sundance Film Festival to release a short film. Called “Fight for Your Rights Revisited” — a reference to their 1986 hit, “(You Gotta Fight) For Your Right (to Party)” — the short features actors like Elijah Wood, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, John C. Reilly, Jack Black and Seth Rogen.

Welcome back, MCA.
