After weeks of anticipation, the tracklist for Eminem’s ninth studio album Revival has been revealed. Eminem took to Instagram to unveil the news on Tuesday (December 5) with a simple caption that read: “12/15.”
Boasting 19 tracks, the album features guest spots from Beyoncé, Phresher, Ed Sheeran, Alicia Keys, X Ambassadors, Skylar Grey, Kehlani and P!nk.

Lead single “Walk On Water” featuring Queen Bey yielded mixed reactions and there has yet to be a second single from the project. Revival serves as Em’s first album since 2013’s The Marshall Mathers LP 2and ushers in the 45-year-old version of the Detroit rap god.
During a recent appearance on Rick Rubin’s new podcast, Broken Record, Em told the Def Jam Recordings co-founder about the meaning behind “Walk On Water” and explained it was about “not being superman.” The pressure he feels to be a flawless MC is one of many topics he explores on the new 19-track effort.
The rollout for the album has been intense. After a blistering attack on President Donald Trump in a video cypher for the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards, Em and his team started cryptically teasing the album through a mysterious Instagram post from manager Paul Rosenberg and a fake prescription drug ad for Revival. The campaign for the project has kept Em fans busy trying to piece together everything from the release date to guest spots.
Revival is expected to arrive on December 15, which Dr. Dre and Eminem confirmed last week.
