Shania Twain Announces Her First Album In 15 Years With A New Single
51-year-old, Canadian-born Queen of Country Pop has just announced the September 29 release of NOW, her first studio album in fifteen years. A new song from it “Life’s About to Get Good,” hit the Internet this morning, propelled by a turbo-charged kick drum, full of the smart little sonic details that made Twain one of mainstream music’s most revolutionary forces during her mid-’90s reign as the best-selling female recording artist in the world.
After separating from her husband and longtime producing partner Mutt Lange in 2010, Twain completely lost her voice, a terrifying development that at the time she believed was caused by stress. She was subsequently diagnosed with Lyme disease (a condition that’s also affected the singing career of country legend Kris Kristofferson). Medical treatment and diligent physical therapy allowed Twain to regain the warm, confidential tone that made her beloved across the globe.
“Life’s About To Get Good,” written by Twain and produced by Ron Aniello and Matthew Koma, known for working with artists ranging from Bruce Springsteen to Zedd, feels more careful than Twain’s earlier work.
Born Eilleen Regina Edwards in August 28, 1965. Twain has 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. Her success garnered her several honorific titles including the “Queen of Country Pop”.
Twain’s second album, 1995’s The Woman in Me, brought her widespread success selling 20 million copies worldwide, spawning hits such as “Any Man of Mine” and earning her a Grammy Award. Twain’s third album, Come On Over, became the best-selling studio album of all time by a female act in any genre and the best-selling country album, selling around 40 million copies worldwide. Come On Over produced several singles, including “You’re Still the One”, “From This Moment On” and “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!”, and earned Twain four Grammy Awards. Her fourth and latest studio album, Up!, was released in 2002 and, like her previous two albums, was also certified Diamond in the U.S., spawning hits like “I’m Gonna Getcha Good!” and “Forever and for Always”.
