After the late release of ‘Relapse’ earlier this year, Eminem fans may be able to look forward to a second studio offering from the rap superstar in 2009. A speculated release date for ‘Relapse 2’ has been announced for November 16th in the UK and the 17th in the US.
Em recently spoke about the release, whilst explaining about the delay of ‘Relapse,’ which was originally due to drop in 2008.
“A lot of people were expecting ‘Relapse’ to drop last year; I was one of them. Then Dre and I went back in the studio in September for a few days, and that turned into six months. We were on such a roll; we wound up with a ton of new music produced by Dre. Putting out ‘Relapse 2’ will let everyone get all of the best stuff.”
Although it seems likely that Shady/Aftermath will be keen to monopolise on the rapper’s media prominence, the date is yet to be finalised.
UPDATE: Eminem’s manager has stated that reports regarding the speculated release date are untrue. Amazon UK, the cause of all of the speculation, continue to maintain that the album is due to be released on November 16th. Is there any truth in the statement? Is Rosenberg just trying to cover his back after the numerous delays from Shady/Aftermath with past projects? That remains to be seen.
