May 19

The same day we learn Eminem’s latest album finally has a release date (May 19), we learn that there’s a second album full of other songs that didn’t make the album, along with material he’s working on now. Relapse 2 is due out towards the end of 2009.

Relapse 2 makes it official, Eminem has his very own Detox.

With the announcement of the release date for Relapse also comes confirmation of something that had been rumored in recent weeks: Eminem is already working on a follow-up album, Relapse 2, that fans can expect in the second half of 2009. “A lot of people were expecting Relapse to drop last year,” said Eminem. “I was one of them. Then Dre and I went back in the studio in September for a few days, and that turned into six months. We were on such a roll; we wound up with a ton of new music produced by Dre. Putting out Relapse 2 will let everyone get all of the best stuff.”
