Eminem says he’s currently recording material for a new album that could be released by year’s end.
“I’m concentrating on my own stuff right now — just banging out tracks,” Eminem told listeners of his Sirius XM satellite radio station, Shade 45. “The more I keep producing, the better it seems I get. I start knowing stuff, learning the boards like the back of my hands.”
The Detroit rapper said he was producing tracks for both himself as well as artists signed to his Shady Records label.
A rep for Interscope said there is no official release date for the project, nor a first single, but confirmed that an album may arrive before year’s end, reports Billboard.
Rapper 50 Cent, with whom Eminem has collaborated in the past, spoke to BBC Radio 1 this week and said fans will be “seeing (Eminem) shortly. “He’s working. I spent the weekend at his house,” said 50. “Even though he tries to relax and stay home, it’s impossible for him to stay in.”
