Eminem is about to complete his eighth album,  according to Dr. Dre. “Em is finishing up his project,” Dre said to Power 106. “And for me, I’ve just gotten inspired to go back in the studio, so I’m really just having fun with life and having fun being creative and just trying some new and different things with myself.”

Eminem’s new album — one of our most anticipated of 2013, by the way — is the follow-up to 2010’s Recovery. It’s now slated for a post-Memorial Day release, so just weeks before his headlining gig at Belgium’s Pukkelpop Festival. As for The Chronic mastermind’s comeback (and final) album, Detox was scheduled for an early 2011 release until he instead went on a hiatus. Check out Power 106’s chat with Dr. Dre after the jump.
