Eminem is just about ready to drop the Shady XV album, according to his Instagram account. The album cover art — unveiled by Em on the photo-sharing site Monday (Oct. 13) — is horror movie-inspired with two chainsaws crossing above a mask with the caption, “Back to basics! Here's the cover for #SHADYXV out 11/24.”

The double-disc compilation was announced in August, and will feature new songs, coupled with some of the Detroit MC’s classic cuts. The release commemorates 15 years since Em founded Shady Records and dropped The Slim Shady LP, his first release under the Shady/Aftermath/Interscope Records umbrella. 

“Guts Over Fear,” the lead single from Shady XV, premiered in the movie trailer for The Equalizer, Denzel Washington’s latest film. 

Em’s previous studio album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, dropped last November and has been certified double platinum in the U.S. and Australia, and quadruple platinum in Canada.
