Rumors suggest that rapper Eminem's set to release a new album sometime this summer... few details surrounding Slim Shady's highly-anticipated eighth studio album currently exist on the web, but that hasn't stopped Twitter fans from buzzing! So what's the deal - does this 2013 record have a name? Have any new songs leaked online yet? Is there even an official tracklist? The blunt answer to all of these questions... no. But Em HAS scheduled a handful of performances in Europe this August, so maybe an upcoming U.S. tour isn't totally out-of-the-question? And according to several reports, Slim's new album is allegedly set to hit stores on July 2. Are fans excited for some NEW Marshall Mathers music? Read on for more deets!
Eminem's New Album NAME?
There's still no clues as to what the title of Slim's new record will be, but here's a list of his previous releases:
The Slim Shady LP (1999)
The Marshall Mathers LP (2000)
The Eminem Show (2002)
Is there an ongoing theme here? Do fans have any album name suggestions for the "8 Mile" rapper?
Eminem New Music Leaked? Songs Tracklist?
NO - repeat - NO new Slim Shady music has yet to leak online. Several Eminem "wannabes" continue posting "new music" on Youtube and beyond, but it's not actually the "Without Me" star rapping. For example...
Yeah - that's not Em. An official tracklist for the new record hasn't even been released, although Shady Records President Paul Rosenberg promises a 2013 album is definitely in the works: "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."
Rumors have it that the "official" release date is July 2, 2013. Again, this is just a RUMOR (some fans still think the record will drop today, May 28... the 11th anniversary of "The Eminem Show").
And here's the mini-August tour:
August 15, 2013: Kempische Steenweg, Kiewit (Pukkelpop 2013)
August 17, 2013: Slane, Ireland
August 20, 2013: Dumbreck Road, Glasgow Eminem
August 21, 2013: Bramham Park, Leeds (Leeds Festival 2013)
August 22, 2013: Stade De France, La Plaine St Denis
August 23, 2013: Bramham Park, Wetherby (Leeds Festival 2013)
August 24, 2013: Reading, Reading (Reading Festival 2013)
August 25, 2013: Bramham Park, Leeds (Leeds Festival 2013)
Twitter fans definitely can't wait for Em's new rap tunes:
@HaleyAnnW: "If Eminem is really releasing a new album in the next couple months like he's rumored to, I'm going to cry tears of joy."
@TannerCorrado: "Really I'm just tryna survive until Eminem's new album."
So, how many Mstars fans are excited for some fresh Slim Shady music... if the new album rumors ARE indeed true?
