Apple just dropped a brand-new trailer for its original live documentary on the Beastie Boys.

Beastie Boys Story is scheduled to hit Apple TV+ on April 24. It will feature stage shows with Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz, and is directed by Spike Jonze, who first collaborated with the band on the music video for Sabotage.

Apple TV+ is already in desperate need of new content less than three months after making its debut. But Apple has plenty up its sleeve for 2020, including new TV shows, movies, and documentaries.

One of those is Beastie Boys Story, which is now confirmed for an April release.

Beastie Boys Story coming April 24

“Here’s a little story they’re about to tell…” reads a tweet from the official Apple TV account on Twitter. “Mike Diamond and Adam Horovitz share the story of their band and 40 years of friendship in a live documentary directed by their former grandfather, Spike Jonze.”

Apple has also posted a brand-new trailer, which gives us our first peek at what Beastie Boys Story has in store for us.

Diamond and Horovitz will take to the stage to spill the details every Beastie Boys fan wants to know about the band and its many iconic hits in front of a live audience. You’ll be able to see it for yourself on April 24.

A previous report indicated the documentary would first debut in IMAX theaters in early April. Apple is yet to confirm that, however.
