Eminem's music video for his new single "Beautiful" has been partially unveiled through a more than one minute clip. In one of the scenes, the rapper is seen singing the song at Detroit's Tiger Stadium, which is then captured being destroyed. The full-length video will be premiered on July 3.
Commenting on the video, Eminem previously said, "Tiger Stadium is being torn down, and the train station is supposed to be demolished too. This video is one of the last times anybody outside of Detroit is going to see them." He added, "I wrote 'Beautiful' when I was really down, during a difficult time struggling with my addiction."
"It's a reminder to keep your head up, and to see who you really are despite what you may be going through. Now that I've gotten through the toughest part, I see how the song relates to Detroit, and it feels even more powerful to me."
Appearing in Eminem's sixth studio album titled "Relapse", "Beautiful" itself is a self-produced track. It peaked at number 17 on Billboard Hot 100 since being released for digital download in May.
As for future project, Eminem will return to recording booth for "Relapse 2". He is also scheduled to headline 2009 Voodoo Festival, which will run from October 30 to November 1, alongside Jane's Addiction, The Flaming Lips, Wolfmother, Eagles of Death Metal, The Black Keys, Ween, Janelle Monae, Q-Tip and Fischerspooner among others.
"I'm going to be doing the Voodoo Festival in New Orleans," Eminem revealed in an interview. "Halloween weekend. This is probably my only live show for at least this year...I'm in the lab right now, trying to get ready for this second album...There's enough to make it right now, I might wanna do some new songs for it or what not, so I'm actually recording right now...I don't know [when the album is coming out.] It's probably looking like fourth quarter."
