Eminem’s new album ‘Relapse’ now set for 2009 release

A source suggests the album won't be out this year

Eminem is unlikely to release his forthcoming new album, ‘Relapse’, before the end of 2008, claims an anonymous record company “insider”.

According to the New York Post despite UK and US retail websites listing the album as set for a December release, ‘Relapse’ is likely to be released early next year.

Eminem… is completely obsessive-compulsive about this album,” the source is quoted as saying. “There’s a 50:50 chance it will be done by the end of this year but most likely it’ll be the first quarter of next year.”
