Eminem Announces New 'Recovery' Album For June 22
Shortly after tweeting there will be no "Relapse 2" album on Wednesday morning (April 14), Eminem posted another tweet announcing a new album title and a June 22 release date. "Recovery," read the straightforward message, followed by a link to his official website, www.eminem.com, on which an official press release was posted.
"I had originally planned for Relapse 2 to come out last year," Eminem said via the statement. "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."
DJ Khalil, Just Blaze, Jim Jonsin and Boi-1da, among others, lend their production efforts for the set.
