Eminem chose Mother's Day as the appropriate release date for his latest video, "Headlights."

The Spike Lee-directed video, filmed in Detroit during early April, is the Oakland County-based rapper's moving apology to his mother for years of turmoil in their relationship and for the caustic remarks he's made about her in past songs. The four-minute clip features many actual photos and some video from Eminem's real name Marshall Mathers III) youth as he writes her a letter and depicts the two reconciling with a hug outside his gated home.

"Headlights" is the latest video from "The Marshall Mathers LP 2," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in November and has sold nearly four million copies worldwide. The song was co-written by Nate Ruess of the band .fun, who also sings the chorus.

Eminem is preparing for a series of live shows this summer, starting July 11-12 at Wembley Stadium in London and including the six-date Monster Tour with Rihanna whose Aug. 22-23 stops at Detroit's Comerica Park are sold out.
