Eminem will release “Relapse: The Refill” on December 21st. The album will include the entire “Relapse” album, plus seven songs that did not make the album. Eminem said his hopes for “Relapse: The Refill” is to “deliver more material for the fans this year like I originally planned. Hopefully these tracks on “The Refill” will tide the fans over until we put out “Relapse 2” next year. I got back in with Dre and then a few more producers, including Just Blaze, and went in a completely different direction which made me start from scratch. The new tracks started to sound very different than the tracks I originally intended to be on “Relapse 2”, but I still want the other stuff to be heard.”

Eminem is currently in the studio working on “Relapse 2” which is scheduled to be released next year. Eminem said “I definitely feel like I’m in a different space right now. With the last record, I think a lot of it had to do with me getting sober, my eyes being open again. With Relapse, I wanted to prove myself that I could still do it. The zany, loony, ridiculous shit, so a lot of that album is rapid-fire punch lines. Now I’m at a point where I’m blessed enough to be in a position where I don’t need to put out records, but I want to.”
