Shania Twain Delays New Album To Early Fall

13 posts in this topic

"The theme of this record is really artistic independence."



Shania Twain hasn't released a new studio album in 15 years, so what's another couple of months?



Look, I'm trying to soften the blow here, because Shania delaying her record from spring to the fall is actually devastating. The country singer, who'll join The Voice as a key advisor, had plans to put forth her fifth studio album (her last was 2002’s Up!) out in May, but a new interview with OCRegister says otherwise. They are claiming it's slated for an "early fall" release, which at this point means 2020.

Twain will take the stage at the 11th annual Stagecoach Country Music Festival in Indio on Saturday, April 29. “I’m so excited because I’ve heard a lot about Stagecoach over all of these years and I really can’t believe that I’m only doing it now for the first time actually,” Twain said. “It’s never too late for firsts.”

Fortunately, it's not all bad news. Shania will perform some of her new tunes at the festival. That could include “Life’s About to Get Good,” “Who’s Gonna Be Your Girl?,” “I’m Alright” and “Light of My Life.”

“This was an exercise in independence,” Twain said of the writing process. “I really just wanted to test myself and push my limits and face my fears. I haven’t worked alone in a really, really long time after all of those years of being partnered with Mutt professionally. 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’.”

She added the record reflects her personal highs and lows: “It wasn’t just about my divorce, but just the sadness and disappointment you feel and also how those feelings have evolved and almost become moments of celebration. The choruses in both of those songs are very celebratory and very happy. They’re optimistic. I love the contrast in those songs and this album overall is honest and touches on a lot of candid phrases and wordings of things, but at the same time it still takes me to a place where I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and that’s actually where I’m at right now.”

And on the singer's current playlists? Twenty One Pilots, Drake, Ariana Grande, Meghan Trainor and EDM artist KSHMR.

“I let the songwriting lead the way and let the stories go where they wanted to go,” she said. “I wanted to make sure I nurtured the authenticity and the acoustic elements in the album and I do basically 99.9 percent of all of the backing vocals and arranged all of them so they’re very organic and almost retro. I wanted to be true to my influences and to myself and stylistically it just ended up being very diverse from one song to the next. The theme of this record is really artistic independence.”

I really hope it actually comes out this Fall, I feel like she's pushed this album back so many times and she's been working on it forever, I think she's scared of releasing new music honestly because it's been so long and it will be her first album without any of Mutt's production! She needs to just bite the bullet and release it......she should honestly just surprise release it.

She's honestly an inspiration for me. The struggles she had to go through the past 10+ years are just crazy. She was/is the best selling female country artist of all time and one of the top selling females period, Then her husband cheats on her with her own personal assistant. Like WTF! The stress and depression then resulted in her actually losing her voice. Now she has to find the strength to move forward again and make music without the person that she not only has kids with, but was her lone collaborator throughout her entire career.

Thank you, Jordan for posting this. I have emailed and I finally came around to coming onto these forums. This is my first post on your forums. I simply love Breathe Heavy. I hope I can keep you informed with my girl Shania! Trust me three are Bette, Shania, and Britney. I hope B10's and ST5's albums smash all Billboard records, the singles, the tours and how amazing both females are. We must keep that divine message of fabulousness alive with our respects to our divas, artists, and entertainers. Trust me my love for these female entertainers goes back to the days of the flappers to EDM lovers of today! I do not tolerate hate or negativity in my music or in my ears. I am happy to see good things and good people! Keep up the amazing work you and your staff. Thank you for taking the time for putting this together.  Please keep us informed with Shania! Maybe your staff can show me how to work this because I am seeing so many things I would like to do with my profiles and the computer technology I am very verse with!
