New Music in the line for Shania Twain
Good news for Shania Twain fans all over the world as the Canadian Country Pop singer announced plans about her new upcoming album. Her last album “Up!” was released in 2002 and it has been almost eleven years till now, so fans are waiting desperately to get their hands some new music. So not surprisingly, her news made the headlines and people are waiting in anticipation for her latest release, although it may take yet some more time for the album to come in the market. The singer is currently preparing for her second Las Vegas residency. In 2012, she gave a performance at Caesars Palace and will go to the Vegas Strip on October 15 for performing her show that will run through December. But relating to her newest album in her recent interview to Rolling Stones, Shania Twain admitted that although most of the songs are in place for the next record, she is still in search of a producer which will help her define the sound of the album.
In this regard, she is listening to a lot of music to better help her in the process of production direction. When asked who her latest musical inspirations have been, Shania Twain gave a few names eagerly which had inspired her recently.
“This is last year, but I’m really stuck on Lana Del Rey. I’ve been listening to that one a lot more and kind of stuck on the sound of that record."
The new album will be a big break for her as pressure has slowly been mounting on the “You’re still the One” star. The five time Grammy Award winner rose to fame after her 1995 album “The Woman in Me” and after that, 1997 album “Come on over”. Come on Over became the best-selling studio album of all time by a female act in any genre and the best-selling country album of all time. It sold more than 40 million copies worldwide. Her last album (her fourth), “Up!” was released in November 2002 and has sold more than 20 million copies all over the world. Her new upcoming album is also expected to be a great hit as Twain is taking her time to compose the music and would not want to disappoint her fans. According to her, she wants her new album to be perfect and something which she really enjoys and is a product of her inspiration. She recently stated in an interview that she wanted this fact to be reflected in her music that she had evolved and had become different. But at the same time, she didn't want to desert her origins. It may sound easy and something usaual, but its' not. A lot of hardwork and determination needs to be put in by Twain if she wants perfection and style.
In her upcoming trip to Vegas, however, she has ruled out the possibility of previewing any new material. When asked if she would present any new song at the show in Vegas, Twain replied that she thought it was too soon. She added that she could do that but until she had taken her songs a little further down the line, she did not want to get locked into a performance mode. According to the star, it was the right time to start taking her new music more seriously as she had winded up the production of the show.
But coming all the way this far has not been an easy journey for the famous singer. She had a difficult childhood, accompanied by poverty and hard times. At the tender age of eight, she started singing in bars to help her family financially, often earning twenty dollars by performing for customers. Although the young singer hated doing this but she expressed a positive side to this ordeal as well, stating that she believed it was her own idea of performing arts on the road. Her love and passion for music made it all possible as she strived and faced problems only to fulfill her passion and that helped her survive. Twain started writing her own songs at the age of ten, and as she progressed, her passion paid off in coming years, as the star rose to fame and is also referred to as “The Queen of Country Pop”.
