Eminem's follow-up to 2010's Recovery will land in stores after Memorial Day, Billboard reports. Shady Records president Paul Rosenberg revealed to the publication that Eminem is "far into the process" of recording his eighth studio album. "We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013. He's been working on it for some time," said Rosenberg. "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." The still-untitled new album will be Eminem's first release since 2011's Hell: The Sequel with Bad Meets Evil, his project with Royce da 5'9".

Rosenberg also said Shady Records will put out 50 Cent's long-delayed Street King Immortal, which has been repeatedly pushed back since its originally intended 2011 release, this spring.
