Eminem surprised fans Thursday night with the release of his 11th studio album, Music to Be Murdered By.
"It’s your funeral..." Em wrote on Instagram, announcing the album.
MTBMB includes titles like "You Gon' Learn," "In Too Deep," "Leaving Heaven," "Never Love Again," and "Darkness"; the latter of which received the video treatment by director James Larese.
Eminem also took to Twitter to explain that the album was inspired by legendary English filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock. Eminem took the title of his album from Hitchcock's 1958 project, which has the same name. Fittingly, Eminem's new album features an interlude titled "Alfred" that features a clip of the director.
On the track "Unaccomadating," which features Young M.A, Eminem raps about the Manchester Arena bombing that happened during an Ariana Grande concert in 2017. 23 people, including the perpetrator, died during the attack. "I'm contemplating yelling bombs away on the game like I’m outside an Ariana Grande concert,” Eminem raps on the song.
The album arrived about a year-and-a-half after Shady blessed fans with another surprise drop, Kamikaze.
Rumors of another Em project have been circulating since summer 2019, when his friend and frequent collaborator 50 Cent confirmed there was something in the works: "Eminem] sent me a record now, he working now," Fif said during an interview on Real 92.3. "He got some things, man. We’re doing it now."
