Eminem Confirms 2013 Release of New Solo Album

Eminem plans on releasing his new solo album in 2013.

The rapper announced a limited edition baseball hat inspired by his hometown team the Detroit Tigers who played in the World Series this year, that displays his patented backwards E on the front with the years of all his album releases on the side.

The final year to be displayed is 2013 confirming that Eminem will release a new record at that time.

The cap also displays 1996, for his Infinite album, 1999 for Slim Shady LP, 2000, for the Marshal Mathers LP, 2002 for the Eminem Show, 2004 for Encore, 2009 for Relapse, and 2010 for Recovery.

The hat can be purchased at Eminem's web store.

Eminem first announced he was working on a new solo album back in August when he phoned in to the Channel 955 radio station in Detroit.

"I actually started my album," said Eminem to the station. "But I haven't fully went in yet because I've been finishing up this Slaughterhouse record. I've kind of been really hands-on with this album for the past year."

At that time, Eminem did not confirm a release date for his next LP. He also updated the station on his relationship with rapper 50 Cent who also will drop a new album this year titled Street King Immortal.

"Ever since [Shady/Aftermath Records] started making music with [50 Cent], it was always like a mutual respect thing and we became friends outside of music," said Eminem. "50 is very big on the business aspects of his career. I would consider him a smart business man. Not saying that I'm not, but I don't get into as much of the technical aspect in the business sense."

Eminem's last solo album Recovery was released in 2010 and has sold over 4 million copies in the U.S. alone.
