While music fans across the country were waiting for the highly anticipated - and extremely brief - 'N Sync reunion at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night, one of the other biggest stars from the TRL era, Eminem, made some news of his own.

The rapper announced a new album, The Marshall Mathers LP 2, which will hit stores on Nov. 5, 2013. Eminem also revealed on his website that the first single from the album, "Berzerk," will be released Tuesday.

The announcement came with a YouTube video that included a 15-second snippet of his new material, which promises to "take it back to straight hip-hop and start it from scratch." The album is executive-produced by Rick Rubin and Eminem's longtime mentor and producer Dr. Dre.

The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is Eminem's eighth studio album and his first since 2010's Recovery.
