Eminem’s New Single Revealed

The details surrounding Eminem’s new album Recovery are scant, but the single is expected to impact radio and the internet on Friday.

“Not Afraid,” the new single was revealed by the Detroit rapper via his Twitter account. He said, “I’m ‘Not Afraid.’”

The producer of the song is presently unknown, but MTV News spoke with Jim Jonsin and he said Eminem has expanded his musical offerings.

“He was open to ideas,” Jonsin told MTV of Recovery. “He was real respectful to my craft. He let me do what I do. He asked me ideas on some of the lyrics. We had ideas for lyric changes. Certain words may or may not work on radio. We talked about that. He had a setup outside of the room to do production, but I’d rather be in the room where he was at, and he was cool with that. And I knocked out a couple of joints in there while he was in there with me. He was pretty open and he let me do my thing. He did his thing. It was a pretty good experience.”

Recovery is expected to drop June 22.
