Country-Pop star Shania Twain is finally releasing her fifth album next year late spring after 14 years of hiatus. The 51 year old singer who broke up with her husband and producer in 2008 made this know in an interview with Entertainment Weekly saying, “I’m so overdue! I feel like I just need to keep making albums now.”
She said she has plenty of content to choose from for her upcoming album: That she has been constantly recording her ideas onto devices and laid down home demos. “By the time I got into the studio, I was already quite familiar with what I wanted to do. I’m a very focused person in the studio,” she said. “It’s not like it’s not fun, but the joy comes in watching the whole thing grow and getting locked into that creative mode…that’s so indulgent for me.”
One of the best selling female artistes of all time with 5 Grammy awards and over 85 million sales globally, Shania Twain further pointed out that her new album would include “painful and melancholy ballads that evolved into completely upbeat songs” and “triumphant” girl-power rockers.”
By the end of the recording of the album, she said, “I felt like I had climbed a huge mountain and was standing on top of it, looking God in the eye, and saying, ‘I’m here! What do I gotta do next?”
She dreams of a duet with Sia and Stevie Wonder and has enlisted producers, including Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, One Direction), Ron Aniello (Bruce Springsteen), Jacquire King (Kings of Leon) and Matthew Koma working on the album.
We cannot wait to listen to that special comeback album next year.
