Shania Twain is the highest selling female country artist of all time and has a brand new album that will impress you much. No marketing gimmicks, just great songs.
It's been fifteen years since Shania Twain released her last studio album Up. This was of course after the phenomenal success of 1997's Come On Over. And now twenty years on, Shania is back with a brilliant album called Now. It's out tomorrow and fans from all over will be happy to learn that her country/pop brand of music is right on the money. You would have already heard Life's About to Get Better, and three other tracks that show the strength and vibe of the album. But there is still more gold to be discovered when it hits the shelves and your screens come Friday 29 September.
Featuring a country balanced recipe of fun, attitude, inspiration, simplicity, accessibility and reflection, Shania's Queen of Country crown will remain firmly on her head, that is for sure. So get your ears across it and indulge in America's finest sounds and productions with melody and hooks, guitar licks and wonderful piano sounds, warm background vocals and of course Shania's gutsy familiar, and inviting vocal chops taking the lead. All of this, of course, topped with that wonderful comforting, thoughtful production and gloss that makes premium country music so brilliant. Actually, Shania co-produced the entire album, and has writing and production credits on each song. The woman is owning it in the best way possible. Keep your ears out for a couple of stand out tunes, More Fun, Poor Me and Soldier. But we better not start listing too many songs - they are all good.
Oh, and it must be said, it is refreshing to have zero marketing gimmicks and stunts - Now is just purely about the music. Young people, get off Instagram, this is how you do it.
