The 'Lose Yourself' rapper's record label president speaks about when fans can expect to hear the star's latest record.
Eminem first teased details of his new album when he posted a commemorative cap on his websitre with the 2013 release of the record stitched on.
Since then, fans have speculated on when they will hear new material from the rapper, who has a series of UK summer dates planned.
Speaking to Billboard, the star's Shady Records President Paul Rosenberg announced that there would be no release until after Memorial Day (27th May) and that the summer is a likely time to unveil the record.
"We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013. He's been working on it for some time," he admitted. "It's safe to say that it will be post-Memorial Day at some point, but we're not exactly sure when.
"We've got some dates locked in for him to perform live in Europe in August, so we're trying to see what else lines up," he added.
Eminem will headline this year's Reading and Leeds Festivals on a line-up which also included recently confirmed headliner Biffy Clyro.
It has also been revealed this week that the 'Stan' rapper has recruited a relatively unknown UK act to help sing the chorus of his forthcoming single.
