The legendary hip-hop trio is currently at work on its seventh studio album and is set preview some of the new tracks at the Good Vibrations music festival in Australia next month, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Co-founder Mike D (Diamond) told the paper that the group is in the midst of recording the album, which would be the follow-up to 2004's To the 5 Boroughs.

"It is actually really different ... [fans] can expect to be disappointed, they can expect to be angry at us," the 41-year-old rapper told the paper. "It's always hard to know [how the album will turn out]. We still have a little of a way to go. I don't want to describe it too much because whatever I say might change. We are in the middle of recording it ... we are pretty excited."

Mike D and his fellow Beasties, Ad Rock (Adam Horovitz) and MCA (Adam Yauch), have been relatively quiet since releasing Boroughs. Yauch directed the 2006 concert film, Awesome ... I F****ing Shot That!, which incorporated footage filmed by fans. The group appeared at the SXSW festival last March to promote the film.

After more than 25 years in the game, Diamond said the trio is still surprised by its longevity.

"We never really thought we would get as far as to making a living from being in a band, period, let alone for any period of time," he said. "We have been lucky. We are able to take good breaks from each other, from what we do together [as musicians], which is nice. So when we come together, touring or in the studio, we actually enjoying being around each other."
