Eminem will not release a solo album before the year 2012/2013? 24.11.2010 00:12 E-mail Print PDF
Eminem will not release a solo album before the year 2012/2013? The only album in 2010, which has sold over 3 million copies of "Eminem - Recovery" has a long life.
According to plans, Interscope Records, this album gives a promo in length 2-2.5 years. And in order to maintain sales, Eminem in 2011 will present something new to the promotional schedule.
For example, it could be a world tour sometime in 2011. Or mini-release, or a parallel project.
Few can sell 3 million CD in just 5 months, which means a new full release will not be until the Recovery does not work about 5 platinum.
Everyone remembers the 2002-2003 year, when an aid was released the film "8 Mile" and the soundtrack on CD, and also took a tour, or the 2000-2001 year - when the album came out D12, and have been touring.
Anyway, before the end of 2010 should not expect anything new from Eminem'a, because the promo 3 singles "No Love" will go to the end of this year. Then in February 2011 we are promised the album "Dr. Dre - Detox", and in the spring and summer may be round, if all goes as it should.
Well, to whet interest in the Recovery again, in the 2 half of 2011 may issue on Deluxe 2CD version of the album.
Somewhere in 2013 already, you can safely wait out the concert "Eminem x Jay-Z: Home and Home" on Blu-Ray and DVD, in the same year, we should expect a new full-length LP from the UAE.

I don't think Interscope can really control Em like that (especially at this point.) And Denaun has confirmed that above statement as well.
When there were rumors about Relapse 2 (actually around this time last year) and people were saying Interscope is having Eminem do this and that - and Denaun did that one interview for an England radio station talking about how Interscope not really controlling Em.
Either way - even if this is true - Its not like its hard to believe....I don't really expect another Eminem album for a while either....I think he MAY want to do a D12 record, or jump on producing the Slaughterhouse album. Other than that I think we can just expect some good ol' guest features and maybe an EP or something.....
"My music - it's never been and never will be, a money issue. I don't give a fuck about the money. But when you take shit that is not finished - [...] - and put it out there, that shit hurts. " - - Eminem.
^It's actually hard for me to believe they would think it's possible to promote an album in a length of 2-2.5 years. Maybe somebody who's constantly on the road could partially pull it off in a way the CD would attract people to the shows but Eminem hasn't been able to promote even his third single and he can thank Rihanna's people and her fans for the massive support of LTWYL. If it had been up to Eminem's people or his fans, the song would have never made it to the number one spot on the radio. And who will care about H&H DVD in 2013 either? With such approaching the only thing Eminem could achieve in a length of 2-2.5 is showing the whole world how to sabotage your career and fall from the super-stardom to the gutter. Eminem won't survive without the new generation of fans. It's one thing to take a break for 2-2.5 years and quietly leave the scene for a while but it's laughable to come out with a marketing "strategy" and expect the mainstream would care about an old album in times when a singles can become old and overplayed within a month.
Most people don't care about Slaughterhouse or D12. If they cared about them, they would be already everywhere with or without Eminem. I don't think it's possible for him to make them famous but I think he has a chance to ruin his own career during the process...
I think some of those things sound really plausable. For example, I wasn't expecting an album from him in 2011, nowadays artists release new albums every two years, the only ones that release every years is when the last album underperforms as was the case with Rihanna's Rated R or Em's Relapse. I wouldn't expect a tour but we all "know" that a D12 and/or slaughterhouse album is coming and he will feature in them. The only thing I don't believe for a second is the release date for the DVD with Jay Z, I'm expecting it to be released for next year's Christmas campaign.
