Eminem Set to Release Eighth Album This Year
Eminem is ready to bring some heat this summer with a new full-length album.
PopCrush reports that the Detroit rhyme-spitter is planning a post-Memorial Day release as announced by his longtime manager Paul Rosenberg.
“We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013,” Rosenberg tells Billboard. “He’s been working on it for some time. It’s safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we’re not exactly sure when.”
In support of the new album, Em is set to headline the Reading and Leeds festivals, which runs from Aug. 23-25. Rosenberg also said that he will perform some U.S. shows but didn’t get into specifics.
Slim Shady confirmed last May that he’s been in the studio working with his mentor Dr. Dre. “Yeah, of course he’ll be involved,” Em reveals of the producer’s work on the LP, currently untitled. “I usually get going and kind of start going a certain direction and just record what I’m feeling. Then I’ll go see Dre and fill in some of those pieces.”
Fellow rapper 50 Cent said he would probably appear on Marshall Mathers’ first or second single, while Royce da 5’9′ says expect the unexpected on the album. “I’m not so sure how the world is going to respond from some of the things that I’ve heard from him,” Royce says.
‘Recovery,’ Eminem’s last solo album, has sold over 5.8 million copies and boasts the chart-topping hit singles ‘Not Afraid’ and ‘Love the Way that You Lie’ featuring Rihanna.
