With all the talk of Kendrick Lamar's rap diss track the past couple of days, superstar Eminem managed to release a new song from his upcoming album without garnering too much fuss.
The new song, "Survival," is in the trailer for upcoming video game, Call of Duty: Ghosts, to be released November 5.
"Survival" was world premiered on Wednesday at a Call of Duty worldwide multi-player event. Eminem appeared on a video at the end of the trailer and told those watching that a music video for the song was on the way, and that details for the album would be coming shortly.
"The [new] song's about fighting back and it seems like it fits Ghosts perfectly," Eminem said in the video statement. "I'm gonna be a big part of the [Call of Duty] game. My new song's in it, got a video dropping for it soon too."

As far as what Eminem's album could be called, recently an image of Eminem with the word Redemption underneath has spread on Twitter. The image is most likely fake, but the title and image align perfectly with his last two albums.
Redemption would complete the story he started telling on Relapse and then continued on Recovery.
"We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013. He's been working on it for some time. It's safe to say that it will be post-Memorial
Day at some point, but we're not exactly sure when. We've got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we're trying to see what else lines up," said Eminem's manager Paul Rosenberg in a public statement back in February.
Eminem made a posting on his rarely updated Facebook page about hanging out with Lamar, and now in a recent interview, the young rapper talked about his time with Em.
"It was unexpected, I just went to Detroit and I had a show out there and I got a call saying, 'Em [wants you] to come to the studio, come to the studio fast ... That was me actually just meeting and greeting. I bumped heads with Eminem [in the past], but it was very brief, that was my first time really chopping it up with him, getting to ask all the questions I wanted to ask him," the 26-year-old said to MTV.
Lamar did not reveal if they did a track together, but instead spoke about meeting Eminem as a fan.
