The Slim Shady rapper is currently working on a new album.

Eminem will return to Reading & Leeds for the third time this summer to headline the August festival.

The festival announced its full lineup for 2017 today, with boss Melvin Benn calling Eminem’s scheduled performance “beyond exciting,” in a statement. “His 2013 headline performance was incredible and I can’t want to have him back.”

The Slim Shady rapper first headlined the festival at the height of his career in 2001, while also performing on the main stage in 2013.

Last October, Eminem announced via Twitter that he is working on a new album and released new track ‘Campaign Speech’.

Earlier this year, Reading & Leeds came under for only including one female performer in the initial line-up alongside 57 men.
