Mr. Mathers drops a few clues about his new record, which is set for a Black Friday release
The summer and his Monster Tour may be winding down for Eminem, but it looks like Marshall Mathers is going to have a busy fall ahead of him: The rapper (and VMA nominee) just tweeted that his next record, Shady XV, will be dropping this Black Friday, November 28.
In addition to his seven nominations at the VMAs tonight, Em celebrated Shady XV‘s announcement by posting a brief trailer for the album in the tweet, and he’ll be releasing a new track as well. His collaboration with Sia, “Guts Over Fear,” is set to premiere tonight at midnight, and those tuning in to the VMAs got a sneak peek of Shady XV‘s first single as it soundtracked the trailer for The Equalizer.
Fans who caught the last night of the Monster Tour may have noted Shady XV‘s title, too: Em rocked a t-shirt emblazoned with the album’s title on the last night of his run with Rihanna.
The Shady XV trailer (linked to in the first tweet above) doesn’t reveal much at all, though it does flip through some images of Eminem’s past (including some D12 snapshots and a 50 Cent cameo or two). Who knows: His ninth album could very well be a retrospective piece that offers up both new collaborations (a la “Guts Over Fear”) and greatest hits alike. Either way, Em’s up to something and we can’t wait to see what he’s got in store for us this November.
