Shania Twain releases new single Life’s About to Get Good and announces new album NOW


Three decades into her storied career as the "top-selling female country artist of all-time," International superstar Shania Twain confidently embraces the moment on her triumphant fifth full-length on Mercury Nashville and first album since 2002, the aptly titled Shania NOW.

Assuming the role of sole songwriter for the first time and overseeing production as a co-producer on all 16 tracks, this is the woman the world knows and loves at her brightest, boldest, and best.
This is the singer who rose from poverty in Ontario, Canada to winning five GRAMMY Awards, selling 90 million albums worldwide, earning the title "Queen of Country Pop," penning the best-selling memoir From This Moment, and achieving an unprecedented three Diamond-certified albums-1995's 12x-platinum THE WOMAN IN ME, 1997's 20x-platinum COME ON OVER (the best-selling studio album in Soundscan history by a female artist in any genre), and 2002's 11x-platinum UP.

This is the powerhouse voice behind "You're Still The One," "From This Moment On," "That Don't Impress Me Much," "Honey, I'm Home," "Man! I Feel Like A Woman!", and "Come On Over," to name a few. This is the fighter who returned from a quietly debilitating eight-year bout with Lyme Disease to headline a show-stopping two-year Las Vegas residency in 2012, launch 2015's comeback "Rock This Country" tour, and receive a 2016 Billboard Women in Music "Icon Award." Led by the declaratory first single "Life's About to Get Good," this is Shania NOW

NOW, offered as both a 12-track standard and a 16-track deluxe, is available for preorder now and includes an instant download of the album’s lead single “Life’s About to Get Good.” The joyful new tune premieres today on country radio platforms around the globe.

What Do You Think to Shania Twain's new single “Life’s About to Get Good”?

Life’s About to Get Good,” (Mercury Nashville) has debuted on Billboard Country Airplay at No.36, with 4.8 million in audience. It top home Hot Shot Debut, Most Increased Audience (4.785 million gain) and Most Added stripes thanks to 53 fresh radio commitments.
The self-written “Good” (Loon Echo, ASCAP/Songs Of Universal, Inc., BMI) is Twain’s first entry on the Country Airplay chart since 2011’s No.36-peaking “Today Is Your Day” (her only prior charted title this decade). It’s her 34th total visit, a sum that includes seven No. 1s among 16 top 10s.
Will country radio embrace Twain’s new song for the long term? Early reaction appears mixed. “It is pretty exciting to get new music from an iconic act like Shania,” Cumulus Media vp country Charlie Cook told Billboard. “Her fan base is so passionate about her. When she played Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena last year, the place was nuts. I would say, with all in mind, life’s about to get good for Twain.” Conversely, one major-market PD who prefers to remain anonymous asks, “After all that time off, this is the best that she can do?”

Life’s About to Get Good
Shania Twain (LATGG) OC: …stylistically


“This song is very, it’s got a lot of conflict where it’s very true to my life and my story and my thinking at the time of the very first lyric – ‘I wasn’t just broken/I was shattered’ – like this just doesn’t get any worse, you know, in mind my mind, emotionally. But then the chorus is really catchy, and there’s the irony of all these happy, cheerful voices in there and the craft of the song itself. I mean, ‘Life’s about this, life’s about that, life’s about to get good,’ and that’s just a play on words and that’s just me as a song and that’s just me, the songwriter, having fun. I think this is just a more complete picture of me as an artist. It’s a more complete picture. There’s an extra element there that is deeper into my story, my personal story, but it’s the same songwriter stylistically.”

Shania Twain (LATGG) 2 OC: …of the song
“Well, the song is a little bit of a departure of its own on this album. It’s definitely one of the more chirpy songs on the album, that’s what I would say, but it still has that melancholy story to it in the verses. We’re not quite there yet, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel type of the thing. That’s what the song is about obviously, and it’s a little bit of a satire this song. I’m kind of making fun of that and I’m having fun with like, ‘Oh boy, [I] can’t wait for things to get better. I can see the light. I’m going to head there toward that.’ And then I just sort of make fun with that in the musicality of the song.”


Shania rocked New York City (June 16) as part of NBC’s TODAY Show Summer Concert Series. Fans got to hear new music including her latest single along with a few of her most-popular hits.
