News:
Eminem Album Release Moved Up A Day

After an Internet leak last week, Eminem fans will be able to get the Detroit rapper's new album, "Recovery," a day early.

Interscope Records, Eminem's label, has bumped up the ??-track set's release date to Monday, June 21, from Tuesday, June 22. In a statement, Interscope Vice Chairman Steve Berman said that, "We believe fans want to support their favorite artists by purchasing the real album and not a leaked version. At the same time, we realize speed is of the essence when fans are so passionate about wanting to hear new songs from such an enormously popular artist like Eminem. Even by releasing `Recovery` only a day earlier than previously announced, it makes a difference to those fans -- and doesn't mess too much with our marketing, promotion, publicity and sales plans for the debut of a truly great album."

"Recovery" is Eminem's seventh studio album and follows 2009's "Relapse," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart last May, won a pair of Grammy Awards -- including Best Rap Album -- and has sold more than three million copies worldwide.

Eminem will perform with fellow rapper Jay-Z on Sept. 2 at Detroit's Comerica Park. Ticket details have not yet been announced.
