Shania Twain Is Releasing A New Album, 15 Years After Her Last

What I admire most about Shania Twain is the fact that she reminded the world that “the best thing about being a woman is a prerogative to have a little fun.” With that attitude, it should come as no surprise that the first album she’s releasing in 15 years is was inspired by the good parts that come with the bad in life.

Twait announced her new album on “The Voice” earlier this week, and the first single from the album, “Life’s About to Get Good,” is a glimpse of this positive take on life.

When speaking about her inspiration behind the song, she reportedly said, “I was at home looking out at the ocean and I said to myself, ‘Here I am stuck in this past of negativity, but it’s so beautiful out. I’m not in the mood to write a ‘feeling-sorry-for-myself’ song….’ You can’t have the good without the bad. And that’s what the song ended up being about.”

The album is scheduled to be released in September, but the single will drop in June.

Although, if you’re dying to hear Twain live, she’ll be playing the Stagecoach Festival this weekend in California.

No matter how this new music gets delivered to you, the important thing is that Twain is making music again. Because you know your life just hasn’t been the same without her in it!

First New Album Since 2002

The last album she put out was titled, “Up!” and dropped in 2002. It had the hits “I’m Keeping You Forever And For Always” and “I’m Gonna Getcha Good,” as I’m sure you remember.


This may be her first album after 15 years of not releasing any music, but it’s also important for another reason. This one, she did on her own.

In an interview the the L.A. Times she said, “Right from the beginning, I was not going to collaborate with anybody for this one. This needed to be an independent experience.”

“I hadn’t written by myself for a long time,” went on to say. “I was married for 14 years to my collaborator, and I really just needed to do that again. I needed to go back and do that by myself and have an uninterrupted flow of creativity that was insular, to see what I was made of, to see what I have there.”

I can’t wait to see what she’s come up with. If it’s anywhere near as good as the music I remember, it’s going to be amazing.
