The Marshall Mathers LP 2, Eminem first album since 2010's Recovery (and eighth overall), will be released on November 5 via Aftermath Entertainment/Interscope Records. The new single, the Rick Rubin-produced "Berzerk," was released on iTunes on Monday, August 26 at 11:01 p.m. Central. Dr. Dre and Rubin are credited as executive producers of the album.
In 2000, The Marshall Mathers LP became the fastest-selling solo album in U.S. history, selling 1.76 million copies in its first week.
In the song, Eminem promises to "start from scratch" and go back to old-school hip-hop.
"Now this crib's about to kick off/this party looks whack/Let's take it back to straight hip-hop/and start it from scratch/I'm bout to bloody this track up/everybody get back/That's why my Pen needs a pad/cause my rhymes on the ra-haaag/Just like I did/with addiction I'm 'bout...)"
Here's the two teasers he had released during Sundays MTV Video Music Awards.
