Eminem Set To Release New Album This Summer [Rumor]

Eminem is rumored to be releasing an album this summer. However, nobody seems to really know when the new tunes will be available for purchase.

A number of reports have suggested that the rapper’s latest collection of songs will be released at some point after Memorial Day. While some websites claim the date is set for May 28, others believe it will likely drop this July. Nothing official has been confirmed as of this writing.

All of the speculation kicked off earlier this month when Aftermath Entertainment teased on Facebook that something big was coming. This was followed by a post which declared that a new Eminem album was on the way. However, these posts didn’t include a specific release date.

The only thing for certain at the moment is that the new album will likely drop at some point this year. Shady Records president Paul Rosenberg said fans should expect the new songs to be released during 2013. Beyond that, nothing specific has been confirmed.

Rosenberg explained:

“We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013. He’s been working on it for some time. 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.”

Those tour dates the Shady Records president referred to include the Reading and Leeds festivals. If Eminem plans to tour the US at some point this year, then he’s yet to reveal any possible dates or venues.

Detroit radio station Channel 955 posted on its Facebook page that Eminem fans should expect the new album to drop on July 2. Although whoever released the information seemed pretty sure of the fact, nothing has been confirmed by Eminem or his record company. Since summer is rapidly approaching, something official will surely be announced in the coming weeks.

Are you looking forward to Eminem’s new album? Are you hoping to catch him on tour later this year?
