The trailer for 'Call of Duty: Ghosts,' one of the most anticipated games of the year, features a song from one of the most anticipated albums of the year: Eminem's 'Survival.' It's the first track made public off of the rapper's upcoming eighth studio album.

It's quite an introduction. The song in absolutely anthemic with 'We Will Rock You' drums, glam metal guitars, a lofty chorus from vocalist Liz Rodrigues ("This. Is. Survival of the fittest.") and angrily delivered verses from Shady. "They said I was washed up, and got a blood bath," raps Eminem. "I'm not a rapper, I'm an adapter, I can adjust/Plus I can just walk up to a mic and just bust."

So far, there's no release date on the album, Eminem's first since 'Recovery' in 2010. But Shady Records president Paul Rosenberg told Rolling Stone in February, "We fully expect to be releasing a new Eminem album in 2013. He's been working on it for some time."
