Although Interscope says no release date has been scheduled, Amazon.com is listing a Dec. 23 street date for Eminem’s new album, “Relapse.”
The rapper confirmed the project’s existence in a recent interview on Shade 45, his branded Sirius satellite radio station. He also played a song from the album, titled “I’m Having a Relapse.”
“For the last five months I’ve been working pretty much straight with (Dr.) Dre. There’s going to be a lot of material, more so than I’ve had on an album with him producing before,” Eminem told BBC Radio last week.
Eminem’s last studio album was 2004’s “Encore,” which has sold 5.1 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
