Eminem is getting a little help from Kimmel to promote his new album. His album Relapse drops May 19th, and to gear up for the release, he’ll be appearing on Jimmy Kimmel not once, not twice, but three times!
Eminem’s first appearance will be this Friday, May 15th, in which he’ll perform two songs from the album. He’ll then return on Tuesday, May 19th. The album release is the first studio effort since 2004’s Encore. Eminem will then return to Kimmel via satellite from his hometown in Detroit, performing two additional tracks from Relapse.
This multi-night stint is similar to what U2 did earlier to promote their latest album by appearing five nights in a row on Letterman. Prince also did something similar with Jay Leno.
Eminem is also set to give a three-hour interview on Sirius XM's Shade 45 channel, taking fans on a behind-the-scenes tour of the making of the album and giving track-by-track commentary. It’s definitely a great way to get his name back out there! Although we thought Eminem’s music video for We Made You definitely got a lot of people talking!
Check out Eminem’s first Kimmel appearance is this Friday, May 15th at 12:05AM on ABC.
