New Eminem Record To Be Released In June
Yesterday Eminem treated fans to a special announcement on Twitter after promising a news bulletin that day. The Detroit star revealed that his next album Recovery would be released June 22nd. The follow-up to his last album Relapse will be his seventh. Man, the days do pass don’t they? Who else remembers his first single coming out when MTV was still semi-relevant? This statement differs from Eminem’s previous idea to put out a Relapse 2. He noted in his tweet, "I had originally planned for Relapse 2 to come out last year. But as I kept recording and working with new producers, the idea of a sequel to Relapse started to make less and less sense to me, and I wanted to make a completely new album. The music on Recovery came out very different from Relapse, and I think it deserves its own title." Like every hip-hop album, it will feature many guests. DJ Khalil, Just Blaze, Jim Jonsin and Boi-1da, are some of the rumored contributors. His collaborator on the album, the aptly named Just Blaze, also commented on the new record. “The wordplay is crazy, the metaphors are crazy. He's really back on his game. He had his ups, he had his downs, he's back way, way, way up." It seems like Em didn’t want to make the same mistakes that plagued the weak Replapse. Probably his worst record in my mind, it featured a lot of half-ass written tunes, and pretty forgettable beats, not to mention a lot of his use of an annoying character voice that I couldn’t quite pinpoint the source of throughout the album. It’s like a mix of an American trying to sound Arabic with a sort of German obnoxiousness that just wears on the ear. Either way, I think a lot of his fans are looking forward to the next step in the twisted tales of everyone’s favorite white rapper. Before this record is released, fans can hear Eminem with Paramore singer Hayley Williams on The Adventures of Bobby Ray, the new album from Atlanta rapper B.o.B.'s, which drops April 27.
