After years of silence from the country music superstar, Shania Twain is coming out of retirement. Later this summer she will release both a new single and a new album. Twain made the announcement in an interview with ET’s Sophie Schillaci on the red carpet before appearing on The Voice.
“I have a new single coming out this June,” Twain said. “So I’m kicking off the summer with a new song, and then I’m finishing the summer with the release of the album.”
When it comes to the new single, Twain says she will be performing live when she headlines the Stagecoach concert series. This festival is the country version of Coachella and is held during the latter part of April. Joining her for this festival are stars like Cam, Brett Eldridge, and Dierks Bentley, among many others.
Naturally, Twain’s fans can’t wait for the new album to come out. The last studio album she recorded was “Up!,” which she released back in 2002. One unique thing about this new album is that Twain wrote the entire thing on her own.
Twain got her big break in 1995 when she released “Any Man of Mine” and “Who’s Bed Have your Boots Been Under?” The album and songs Twain recorded introduced a brand-new sound to the country music world and sold 12 million copies. Her next album “Come on Over” went on to sell 40 million copies and cemented her in crossover pop and country history.
During the years that Twain was taking a break, a lot changed in her personal life. She wound up having a son, getting a divorce and remarrying all in the past 15 years. With all those changes, she has definitely had a lot of inspiration for the music she is soon releasing. It will be exciting to see where the road takes her in the future.
