Eminem has announced he is working on a new album by releasing a song about the upcoming U.S. presidential election.
The 8 Mile star took to Twitter on Wednesday to reveal new material is coming in the near future, and to satisfy his fans while they wait for the album, he released a politically-inspired song titled “Campaign Speech,” in which he takes aim at U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump.

“Don’t worry I’m working on an album!” he wrote on the social media site. “Here’s something meanwhile.”
In the track, the 44-year-old raps, “Consider me a dangerous man/But you should be afraid of this dang candidate/You say Trump don’t kiss a** like a puppet?/’Cause he runs his campaign with his own cash for the funding?/And that’s what you wanted?/A f**king loose cannon who’s blunt with his hand on the button/Who doesn’t have to answer to no one?/ Great idea!”
He also goes after Trump’s supporters in the song, rapping, “Run the faucet/I’m a dunk a bunch of Trump supporters underwater.”
Eminem released his last album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, in 2013.
