Shania Twain Reveals She Has a New Album Coming in September!
It’s already been an awesome year for country music fans, and it looks like it’s only going to get better. While we eagerly await Faith Hill and Tim McGraw’s joint album (and still revel in their amazing CMA performance), Shania Twain has swept in with her own stellar news. The crossover superstar beloved by country and mainstream music fans alike has just announced that she has a new album coming out in September.
The newest release will be her fifth full album (following 1993’s self-titled collection, 1995’s “The Woman in Me,” 1997’s “Come on Over,” and 2002’s “Up!”), and the singer claims her new songs draw on years of ideas that she tucked away on different recoding devices. “I’m forever backing things up,” she told EW. “So, if it’s a rainy day or I’m bored, I’ll go through my electronics and listen to things. They’ll have titles like ‘Fun beat’ or ‘Fab memory.’”
The 51-year-old performer added, “It’s really fun to experiment with arrangements. I did so many of my backing vocal arrangements — just being able to have all these multi-tracks and moving them around and experimenting that way. By the time I got into the studio, I was already quite familiar with what I wanted to do.” With over a decade of material to work with, we can’t wait to hear the boot-stompin’ tunes that Twain has turned out.
Also letting fans in on the fact that the first single, “Life’s About to Get Good,” will be released in June, we have no doubt that the title is totally prophetic.
