Eminem scrapped his 'Relapse 2' project in favour of an entirely new record, which will be called 'Recovery'.
Eminem will release a new album in June.
The 'We Made You' rapper announced yesterday (14.04.10) he has completed a new album, entitled 'Recovery', which he will release instead of proposed LP 'Relapse 2'.
Eminem had originally stated he would follow-up last year's 'Relapse' album with a sequel recorded at the same time but told how, as time passed, the idea made "less and less sense" to him.
He said: "I had originally planned for 'Relapse 2' to come out last year. 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."
Eminem, 37, has worked on tracks for the album with producers Just Blaze, DJ Khalil, Jim Jonsin and Boi-1da and after 'Relapse's dark subject matter - dealing with the hip-hop star's personal battle with drug addiction and how he nearly died from an overdose - it is expected 'Recovery' will have a more positive slant.
The 'Stan' hitmaker gave no indication as to whether any material from
'Relapse 2' - which includes tracks he made with legendary producer Dr. Dre - will be included on the new album.
'Recovery', Eminem's seventh studio LP, will be released on June 22.
There's half of a great satire here, as Seth Rogen, James Franco and Evan Goldberg...
This lively and engaging documentary may be set out like an informercial, but it teaches...
Hip hop has always been more of a culture than just a genre of music....
