Eminem to release two new albums

After an absence of almost five years, Eminem has finally revealed the release date for his long-awaited new studio album, 'Relapse'.

The set, which will contain his recent top ten single, 'Crack A Bottle', will be released on May 18th.

But, that's not it. To make up for the delays, the man himself has revealed that he'll release a follow-up later this year.

"A lot of people were expecting 'Relapse' to drop last year," he explains. "I was one of them. Then Dre and I went back in the studio in September for a few days, and that turned into six months. We were on such a roll; we wound up with a ton of new music produced by Dre.  Putting out 'Relapse 2' will let everyone get all of the best stuff."

Since bursting onto the music scene with 'My Name Is' in 1999, Eminem has sold in excess of 75 million albums worldwide, becoming one of the biggest selling rappers of all time.
