Guess who’s back? Back again? Shady’s back! Tell a video game fan!
There hasn’t been new Eminem music in a while, though he did announce that he’d have a new album out in 2013 thanks to a hat he was selling. Now comes a brand new track called “Survival,” which will not only appear on said upcoming album but also on the soundtrack to Call of Duty: Ghosts, the latest entry in the massively successful fist-person shooter franchise.
When we last heard Slim Shady, he was teaming up with his old pal Royce Da 5’9″ for the return of the team Bad Meets Evil, and they scored hits with “Fast Lane” and the Bruno Mars-assisted “Lighters.” The last time Marshall Mathers rapped solo, it was for 2010’s Recovery, which yielded the chart-toppers “Not Afraid” and “Love the Way You Lie.”
More details about Eminem’s new album, including a release date and a single, will be forthcoming. For now, give “Survival,” a guitar-heavy banger cut from the same cloth as “Won’t Back Down,” a listen below (though good luck hearing the lyrics underneath all that digital gunfire). UPDATE: Hear the non-shooty version below too.
What do you think of the new Eminem song? And does it feel good to have Slim Shady back? Let us know in the comments.
