The kid from Timmins who became a global phenomenon, the Queen of Pop Country music, the jilted bride, a crossover superstar who seemed to effortlessly create a jukebox of smash hits—taken from four albums released between 1993 and 1997—is back after 15 years with another smash hit and a new album that is set for release on September 29 through Mercury Nashville/Universal Music Canada.
For the first time in her career, she is the sole songwriter and co-producer on all of Now‘s 16 tracks. The summer of Shania kicks off with the bittersweet anthem, “Life’s About To Get Good”, with more music from Shania Twain to follow ahead of the album release.
A few of her many remarkable statistics: Shania’s box-office draw far exceeds US$100M, she’s sold over 75M albums and has won five Grammy Awards.
As part of the roll-out for the new album, she will perform at BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park alongside Blondie, Take That and Emeli Sande on 10 September. It is her first performance in the UK in over a dozen years.
"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, is a masterful sounding return that avoids clichés, clings to no coattails and has its story to tell. But you listen and take from it what you may.
