*Hours after announcing that his planned “Relapse 2” album is being scrapped, Eminem revealed that he is recording a new album titled “Recovery,” which is scheduled for release on June 22.

“I had originally planned for ‘Relapse 2’ to come out last year,” he said in a statement. “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,” he continued.

Guests on “Recovery” so far include DJ Khalil, Just Blaze, Jim Jonsin and Boi-1da.
