Dr. Dre produced his new 'Relapse' record

Eminem has personally announced that the title of his new album will be ‘Relapse’, and says it was mostly produced by longtime collaborator Dr Dre.

The rapper announced the news yesterday (October 15) on his Sirius radio station Shade 45, during a segment which was touted as the ‘on air launch party’ for his book ‘The Way I Am’.

In addition to the news of his sixth album, he previewed a new track from the release, entitled ‘I’m Having A Relapse’.

A release date for the disc has yet to be confirmed, but 50 Cent hinted during the broadcast that it could be just a couple of months away.

‘Relapse’ is the follow-up to 2004’s ‘Encore’. In 2005, he also released the greatest hits album ‘Curtain Call: The Hits’.
