The “Queen of Country Pop” is ready to reign supreme once again.
Shania Twain recently celebrated her 48th birthday and hinted that she was on the hunt for a producer to help make her comeback album as successful as her previous four.
“I’m pretty much there with my songs. I’m really just sitting on the fence in regards to a producer. So I’m listening to a lot of records, doing my homework there, and trying to determine who is the right match,” the singer told Rolling Stone.
Shania’s last album, Up!, was released over a decade ago back in 2002. She has since starred in her own TV series on the OWN network, received a star on the Walk of Fame, and is currently in Las Vegas for her headlining show Still The One.
“I’m different, I’ve evolved, and I want that to be reflected in the music. At the same time I don’t want to abandon the root of what I am. There are probably less upbeat songs… I would say it’s more half and half compared to what I would’ve done in the past, where I would’ve leaned more towards mostly uptempo songs. I still want to remain positive with my lyrics and stay in that mode with my music, because I enjoy uplifting myself, if you will, with my songs. But at the same time I’m going deeper, and I’m being more realistic with my point of view on things.”
Shania rose to fame back in the 90’s and her album Come On Over became the best-selling album by a female in any genre and the best-selling country album of all time. Come On Over sold over 40 million copies and combined with her other studio albums she has sold over 75 million copies worldwide. The 5-time Grammy winner was also the first (and currently only) female to have three consecutive albums reach Diamond status.
(And that was before iTunes was even around!)
Although she has yet to find her match-made-in-heaven producer and set a release date, fans of country music and Shania Twain are patiently waiting.
