“LEAK” Appears To Show When Eminem’s Album Will Be Released And It Sounds Incredible

It has been widely rumored that Eminem’s new album is reaching its final stages, but there’s yet to be any sign of when we can expect it. In October of last year, the rapper verified he’s working on a new album through a post on social media, also giving fans a taste of what’s to come, linking them to a new track called ‘Campaign Speech’.

But, with regards to a release date, we’re still being kept in the dark, but a recent ‘leak’ seems to tell us that the album will drop in the fall of 2017. Or Autumn, if you’re British.

Hits Daily Double says that their sources have found out that Universal Music Group (UMG) is in the preparation for a financially huge end of the year, as 3 of their big acts are due to release records.

“Our spies tell us to expect albums this fall from Eminem (Shady/Aftermath/Interscope), Taylor Swift (Big Machine), and Sam Smith (Capitol), three of Uni’s biggest stars,” they wrote.

They then delve into some super boring financial figures, talking percentages and capitals, but we’ve got all we need, a new Eminem record coming very soon. As well as Taylor Swift and Sam Smith, if they float your boat.

Last month Complex announced that Allen Hughes, the director of The Defiant Ones, a documentary about Dr. Dre and Jimmy Lovine, let something slip which could possibly mean Em’s next album isn’t too far away.

Prior to the premiere for The Defiant Ones, Hughes spoke deeply of Dre and his work in music, telling Uproxx: “People don’t know this: Dre records every day. Literally, he’s in there recording songs every day.

“He’s like Picasso in that way. He’s always painting. Right now he’s producing, in the 11th hour, a track for Eminem’s latest album.

“So Dre’s still real active in music, you know? But I hear what you’re saying. It’s the truth.”

This could really mean nothing in the grand scheme of things if it wasn’t for one small detail. He says “in the 11th hour.” Now, he could be using the phrase for climactic effect, or it could mean that Dre is producing additional stuff for Eminem as there’s a planned release not too far in the future.

Who knows, but it’s good to create anticipation, isn’t it? There’s yet to be any official announcement from Eminem, Aftermath, Interscope or Shady Records regarding the album, so it’s worth taking everything you hear with a grain of salt.
