Eminem fans are convinced he is getting ready to release a surprise new album on us, months after dropping Music To Be Murdered By.
The Lose Yourself rapper kicked 2020 off in style by sharing his 11th album, and it looks like he could be ending the year in the exact same way.
Followers were whipped up into a frenzy after pictures emerged on Twitter of blood-drenched artwork, thought to be for the 48-year-old’s new offering.
As well as this, an unverified press release appeared to show a tracklist of 12 new songs – suggesting Em will be collaborating with Bon Iver, Phoebe Bridgers and Skylar Grey.
It stated that Eminem will be releasing Music To Be Murdered By – B Side on Friday, December 18.
The 8 Mile actor hasn’t spoken publicly about the rumours or responded to any of the speculation, but we wouldn’t put it past him to drop something special.
Despite his silence, fans couldn’t help but get excited about the claims.
‘Oh I really hope these aren’t just rumours,’ one tweeted.
‘A lil birdie on @Eminem shoulder told me a new album might be droppin soon,’ another stated.
‘I read #Eminem is dropping a new album on Friday. Xmas would come early and hope it’s true and fire,’ a Twitter user added.
The music icon recently made headlines when he opened up about life in lockdown, explaining that it wasn’t ‘new’ to him – as he has felt quarantined by fame for years.
In a candid interview with Sway Calloway on Shade45, he lifted the lid on his struggles in the spotlight.
‘Fame has definitely over the years kinda already had me quarantined, but it’s the fact of knowing that you can’t really go out and we can’t move like how we normally move,’ he said.
‘It’s not just the same thing for me every day that it always is. There’s something to be said about knowing that you can’t go out and do certain things.’
Eminem explained he channelled this all into his music – which might suggest we do have new songs on the way.
‘It’s not the same when you can’t do a lot of your regular routines and s**t, and going to the studio is like my outlet,’ he added.
‘We can’t really get in and do much, so I’ve just been writing.’
