Eminem's new album was supposedly arriving after Memorial Day, and now that the holiday has come and gone, new music has surfaced from the Detroit rapper. "Symphony in H" is a short burst of ferocious bars from Eminem, a no-nonsense track devoid of hooks and packed with mean lyricism. "Feel an urge to put you over the line and chop you with a razor blade / Yo wait, I'm an a-hole," Eminem raps. "Devil with a halo / Hell yeah I'd nail J.Lo to the railroad."

"Symphony in H" will be on DJ Tony Touch's upcoming July 9th mixtape Piecemaker 3: The Return of the 50 MCs, also featuring RZA, Method Man, Redman, Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, Action Bronson and more. There's no word whether the track will appear on Eminem's upcoming album, which is expected this year. Chris Rock fueled rumors of a collaboration with the rapper last month after posting a picture of himself at Eminem's studio on Twitter.

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
