Eminem has unveiled two new covers for his forthcoming album Recovery. The rapper’s seventh studio album will be released on 18th June. The album is preceded by the lead single Not Afraid, released in the UK on 14th June, a track that has already debuted straight to #1 on the US Billboard Chart two weeks ago.
Eminem really needs this album to gain back some credibility. The formerly acclaimed rapper, despite performing well enough with previous album Relapse, has received many sneers from public and critics alike for his lacklustre material and is in danger of becoming irrelevant.
Not Afraid was a decent enough choice of lead single but I’m hoping there is better material on Recovery. Em seems to be aware of his mistakes this time round, cancelling the release of Relapse 2 and going for the more therapeuticRecovery. I’m a big fan of Eminem so I hope he reclaims his former glory.
P.S. I love both cover arts, especially the top one. So sharp and crisp!
