Eminem is hard at work, finishing up his first new album since 2010’s “Recovery.” News of the album was first confirmed by Dr. Dre, who said Eminem, real name Marshall Mathers, was “finishing up” his new project.
When will the album release, though? A post on Aftermath Entertainment’s Facebook page promised a big announcement was coming, and followed with another post that said a new album from Mathers was on the way, however neither post mentioned a release date.
Shady Records president Paul Rosenberg tells Billboard, “It’s safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we’re not exactly sure when.” Rumors say the album might drop on May 28, the day after Memorial Day, but there is no confirmation on that date, or any other. Mathers currently has concerts scheduled throughout Europe during the second half of August, with U.S. dates reportedly in the works. So, while it sounds like 2013 will definitely see new music from Eminem, the question is whether the album will appear before he goes on the road.
