It's been a long time since rap phenom Eminem released the singles-heavy albums Relapse and Recovery. Now, however, he's confirmed that a new solo album will arrive next year.
Marshall Mathers didn't deliver the announcement via a press release or Tweet, however. Instead, it's embroidered on the side of a snapback baseball cap.
The hat, which is available now in the official Eminem store, comes with the following description:
For a limited time only in honor of the big games and the hometown team's return to The D we are pleased to offer the Eminem Baseball Tribute Hat in both home and away colors. Side panel is dedicated to the landmark Eminem solo albums. A portion of the proceeds will go to The Marshall Mathers Foundation.
The most recent year on the side panel is 2013, and we all know that once a date is on a hat it's set in stone.
Stay tuned for more details as they become available. After all, it'll be interesting to know which female singer-songwriters he'll be collaborating with on lite rap rock songs in waiting rooms and elevators across North America next year.
