The decision to treat fans to a pre-Relapse 2 was explained in a press release earlier this week.
Titled Relapse: Refill, the disc will feature seven new tracks, the DJ Hero bonus cut “Take My Ball” and five never-released songs. “I want to deliver more material for the fans this year like I originally planned,” Em said in a press release. “Hopefully these tracks on the Refill will tide the fans over until we put out Relapse 2 next year.” (XXL Mag)
Em updated fans on the status of Relapse 2 and its overall content last month.
“[I’m] pretty much finished as far as recording,” Eminem revealed. “I think all that’s left to do is mix. And you know, in the mixing process, if I come up with anything else then [it will be on there.] I think it’s gonna be a lot different, a lot different than what people expect as far as the contrast from the last record to this one, I think I went back…I got a couple of tracks with Mr. Porter, I got two tracks on the album with him so far, four, possibly five with Just Blaze and I think the overall basis of the record is — it’s more emotional driven. Like the last record, I was more concentrated on spitting, but with this record, I feel like there’s some of that, but at the same time I went back to making songs with feels to them as opposed to just rap records…I’m putting everything I got into this next record. All my focus, just everything, I just want to finish that project and I’ll take it from there.” (Toca Tuesdays)
