Eminem Recovers

Eminem will release a new album in June.

The 'We Made You' rapper announced yesterday (14.04.10) he has completed a new album, entitled 'Recovery', which he will release instead of proposed LP 'Relapse 2'.

Eminem had originally stated he would follow-up last year's 'Relapse' album with a sequel recorded at the same time but told how, as time passed, the idea made "less and less sense" to him.

He said: "I had originally planned for 'Relapse 2' to come out last year. But as I kept recording and working with new producers, the idea of a sequel to 'Relapse' started to make less and less sense to me, and I wanted to make a completely new album. The music on 'Recovery' came out very different from 'Relapse', and I think it deserves its own title."

Eminem, 37, has worked on tracks for the album with producers Just Blaze, DJ Khalil, Jim Jonsin and Boi-1da and after 'Relapse's dark subject matter - dealing with the hip-hop star's personal battle with drug addiction and how he nearly died from an overdose - it is expected 'Recovery' will have a more positive slant.

The 'Stan' hitmaker gave no indication as to whether any material from

'Relapse 2' - which includes tracks he made with legendary producer Dr. Dre - will be included on the new album.

'Recovery', Eminem's seventh studio LP, will be released on June 22.
