Despite what he had planned, Jimmy Iovine felt that he should hold off on releasing another album. He felt that recording an all-new album would be better for Eminem. To please the fans, Em released part of the album through Relapse: Refill. What was to come this year was Relapse 2, instead he will release Recovery.
With a new theme for his new album, Eminem plans on releasing this new album sometime this summer. Em has already promised the first single from the album in the coming days. To prepare the fans for the single that prepares them for the album, he has released a warm-up freestyle.
