Shania Twain held a listening party for her forthcoming album. Perez Hilton attended the exclusive event, and claims her new record is titled Now. A press release last month revealed it drops in September and features the lead single title “Life’s About To Get Good” (out in June).
When Twain performed at the 11th annual Stagecoach Country Music Festival in Indio, CA, last month, she live-premiered the new song.

“This was an exercise in independence,” Twain said of the writing process earlier this year. “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’.”
Twain linked up with singer-songwriter Matthew Koma to help create material that sounds like classic Shania, but refreshed for the times. “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.”
