Eminem Set to Release 12th Studio Album on July 12

Eminem has announced that he's set to release The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce) next week.

The 51-year-old superstar has revealed the release date for his highly anticipated 12th studio album alongside a terrifying teaser featuring the birth of a demon baby.

Sharing the video on X (formerly Twitter), and confirming that the LP will be available on July 12, he wrote: "OH S***!!!

"THE DEATH OF SLIM SHADY (COUP DE GRÂCE) 7/12 (sic)"

The album follows lead single "Houdini," which was released last month, debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Meanwhile, the iconic rapper will release the record's second single "Tobey" – inspired by 'Spider-Man' actor Tobey Maguire - on Wednesday (July 3), followed by a music video two days later.

In the announcement trailer for the album release date, a woman is giving birth to a baby, who isn't breathing until the doctor slaps it to wake up. However, the baby's eyes are completely black when they open, with a slithery tongue and pair of horns. Everyone in the room shouts "Holy s***" at the horror, before the album name and release date are made official.

Eminem announced the new album during the NFL Draft in April with a 'Detroit Murder Files' crime show teaser. The clip showed a real crime reporter discussing the death of Eminem’s alter ego, Slim Shady, saying: "Through his complex... tongue-twisting rhymes, the anti-hero known as Slim Shady has had no shortage of enemies."

Frequent collaborator 50 Cent was then seen saying: "He’s not a friend, he’s a psychopath," before the reporter continued: "The same rude lyrics and controversial antics may have ultimately led to his demise. Join me as we recreate the events that led to the murder of Slim Shady."

Meanwhile, it was recently revealed Eminem is being tipped to headline next year's Glastonbury Pyramid Stage.
