New Shania Twain Album Proves She’s Still the One
Shania Twain has been away for a long time and yet our summer 2017 anthem will be from the lovely Canadian singer and songwriter. Apparently, it’s been 15 years since she last put out an album and 5 years since she’s released a single, so this upcoming brand new Shania Twain album is a welcome surprise.
When her career skyrocketed in the 90s, Twain sold over 85 million records, making her the best-selling female artist in the history of country music and one of the best-selling music artists of all time.
She was dubbed the Queen of Country Pop. She has five Grammy Awards, 27 BMI Songwriter awards, stars on both Canada’s Walk of Fame and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and an induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame. And, she is the only female artist in history to have three consecutive albums certified Diamond by the RIAA.
New Shania Twain Album this September
Twain’s upcoming album entitled Now is set for an official release in September 2017. This is the 51-year-old singer’s first project that she’s done without her ex-husband and producer, Robert “Mutt” Lange. Most of the songs in her new album talk about the lessons she learned while going through a difficult phase in her relationship in 2010.
“This was an exercise in independence. I really just wanted to test myself and push my limits and face my fears.”
In April this year, the artist told the Press-Enterprise that she had to deal rollercoaster feelings during that time, from extreme sadness to celebration and optimism. These translated to a mix of highs and lows in her upcoming album.
“It was a huge leap of courage for me to do this alone and I knew I was going to be carrying the weight of it alone, too. I just kept challenging myself and telling myself ‘OK, you’re going to write this album and we’ll find out what you’re made of these days.’”
Life’s About to Get Good
Released on June 15, 2017, her single entitled Life’s About to Get Good is just the first taste of Now. While the first verses are a bit emotionally-charged, the chorus is filled with hope.
“Life’s about joy.
Life’s about pain.
It’s all about forgiving and the will to walk away.
I’m ready to be loved.
And love the way I should.
Life’s about, life’s about to get good.”
This is such an enticing preview of the new Shania Twain album, and it looks like we’re up for a promising comeback from one of our favorite country music celebrities of the 90s.
