Shania Twain’s Comeback Album Is Up and Moving Again
There is still no word on when exactly we will get to hear new music from Shania Twain, but she promises that she's working hard on her new project and it is on its way.
Originally, the plan was to have new music to release shortly after the country star's residency in Las Vegas concluded, but things happen, and as they tend to do, plans change.
"Vegas was a giant undertaking," Twain tells USA Today, admitting, "That slowed the album process down."
Twain begins her Rock This Country tour in Seattle on Friday, so that may mean an even longer delay on the new album. But don't get too worried yet. The writing portion is complete, and the star dishes that she has "enough songs for two albums." That's what happens when you've been working on the same project for two years — fans reap the benefits!
The tour — Twain's last ever — will find her singing hits from her previous records, which featured co-writes and production by her at-the-time husband Robert "Mutt" Lange. That means fans will hear from 1993's The Woman in Me and 1997's Come on Over, which blurred the lines between country and pop and really shot Twain into superstardom.
“It’s a real, kickin’ hard-hitting, fun party show,” Twain promises of the tour, offering "a completely new show, an entirely new theme than the Las Vegas show."
The album will be a departure from the Twain we're accustomed to, too: "It's so entirely different. It's better for me to say it right now. That songwriting is just so different."
It's been 13 years Twain released her last album, Up!, so what will a little bit longer be? After all, good things come to those who wait.
