Eminem's 'Relapse' set for May 19

Posted on

Relapse, Eminem’s first original studio album in over four years, will be released on May 19, he announced today. The rapper is already working on a follow-up album, Relapse 2, projected to drop in the second half of 2009. “A lot of people were expecting Relapse to drop last year,” said Eminem. “I was one of them. Then [Dr.] 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…Putting out Relapse 2 will let everyone get all of the best stuff.”
