First Justin Timberlake and now Eminem is coming out with a new album this year. It will be his first release since the 2010 Recovery and it’s safe to say that a lot of people are eagerly anticipating this one. According to Paul Rosenberg, the president of Eminem’s Shady label, Mathers is gearing up for a summer release and is already well into the process. Rosenberg predicted for Billboard that Eminem’s eighth studio release will drop sometime after Memorial Day.

"We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013. He’s been working on it for some time," Rosenberg tells Billboard. "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."

But hey, European tour dates, that’s also a welcome piece of news for Eminem fans. And with some dates already planned for the States and various collaborations in the works, it is shaping up to be a pretty busy year for the controversial rapper. But let’s face it, we’ve always known that Mathers is a workaholic, ever since the early days of his career. That means one good thing though. When Rosenberg says summer, he really does mean summer. And sooner, rather than later.

It's been three whole years since we've had a new album from Marshall Mathers. This better be good.
