Eminem‘s road to Recovery has been one hell of a journey. An album that was scheduled to come out last year is now now slated for a June 22nd release. That decision was due in part to the rapper’s choice to rework a lot of the material and the album’s overall feel, undoubtedly because, according to the album’s first single “Not Afraid”, “Lets be honest, that last Relapse CD was ‘ehhhh’.” With that reworking now done, Eminen has announced a few specifics relating to his new studio album, namely its cover art (see to your right) and tracklist.
According to the tracklist, the album’s a little light on guest spots. There’s Kobe, a singer who has done work with Fabolous, and Lil Wayne, who worked with Em on last year’s “Drop The World”. Then, there’s a couple surprises in the form of cameos by Pink and Rihanna. Considering Mr. Mathers history with the ladies, both professionally and personally, these could be interesting to say the least. Not only that, but the album’s got production by hip-hop heavyweights Jim Jonsin and Just Blaze. Seems like the first step to recovery is trying something new.
Recovery hits stores June 22nd via Aftermath Entertainment.
