DETROIT, MI – As the Stans and fans alike patiently wait for Eminem to explode with the release of his ninth studio album, Revival, the Shady Records store is officially open for business — and business will be good (when) the merchandise sells out.
Those individuals looking to show unflinching support to Marshall Mathers’ latest LP can immediately turn their monetary support towards the Limited Edition Autographed Collectors Bundle + Digital Album package for Revival. Besides the digital download or physical copy (which will be made available come December 15), the bundle also includes a Limited Edition Autographed “Walk On Water” Steel Print (with the song’s lyrics etched from a copy of Eminem’s own handwritten scribble-scrabble), a Limited Edition Black Dog Tag and an autographed Certificate of Authenticity on the back of the frame.
The total bundle will run you $500 but it still doesn’t rank as the priciest album collective this decade. Em’s package is a full 50 percent cheaper than Nipsey Hussle’s
2013 mixtape, Crenshaw 2014 mixtape, Mailbox Money.
Always one to take care of home, the bundle was produced in partnership with Detroit’s 1xRUN, who brand themselves “the world’s leading publisher of art prints & fine art editions.”
Other merchandise such as hoodies, t-shirts and lithographs are also available at The Eminem Store.
Details surrounding the once heavily guarded album have been slowly unraveling these last few weeks, which recently was coronated with a new track surfacing named “Untouchable.” In a recent discussion with Elton John and Interview magazine, the megastar rapper explained how he had been carefully selecting the songs and wanted to cast a wide net of fans.
“I’ve been working on it for over a year,” Slim admitted. “You know how it is—you make songs, and as you make the new ones, the old ones get old and you throw them out. The album is called Revival. It’s a reflection of where I’m at right now, but also I feel like what I tried to do was diversify. I’ve tried to make a little something for everyone.”
