News Eminem’s Eighth Studio Album Due Later This Year

Rapper is “far into the process” of the recording which is due for release later this year.

Paul Rosenberg, the president of Shady records, has revealed Eminem’s eighth studio album is due 'post-Memorial Day' (27th May).

Speaking to Billboard, Rosenberg explained that Eminem was “far into the process” of recording the follow up to 2010’s ‘Recovery’. Apparently he has been working on the album for “some time”, adding “it's safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we're not exactly sure when. We've got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we're trying to see what else lines up.”

The release of the as yet untitled new album will come around the same time as the release of 50 Cent’s “Street King Immortal” LP release, which has been delayed since it’s original intended release of 2011.

Eminem is set to headline this year's Reading & Leeds Festivals, alongside Biffy Clyro and an as-yet-unnamed third bill topper.
