New music, album coming soon?


I'm putting my money on Faith. It's unfortunate that her singles fared so poorly; they weren't bad, they just didn't mesh with country radio. In fact, Come Home is one of my favorite songs (the OneRepublic & Sara Bareilles version in particular). So she obviously has the album done and waiting to come out. And I thought the latest we heard from Shania was that she was still looking for the right producer? I personally think she should consider 27 time Grammy Award winner (including one win for production and one nomination for a collab with Shania) Alison Krauss. But that's just me. (I'm also a fan of Vince Gill's production work.)

I suspect that the only artists who could pull off the "no streaming" sales would be Vegas acts and people known on a first name basis such as Adele. My hypothetical guess is that Shania or Faith may be in the running since they both work for casinos. The Shania Twain gift shop has all sorts of merchandise, including CDs. It would not be out of place for new music to land there. Also, older consumers tend to prefer physical albums, so it's a win-win for the casino and the artist. This way, the sales tend to stay in house and marketing costs are lower than ambushing the media with your work and presence. It may be a conflict for Shania or Faith to release an album and still conduct promotional traveling, while under contract.

Well, if Shania really wants to do a "Beyoncé-album-thing" obviously she wouldn't tell anyone that she's found a new producer. She can tell whatever she wants to press and fans (and we know she did it for the last 12 years now), not to throw the surprise away.
I'm waiting too for Faith's new album.
My bets are on:

Faith
Shania
Reba

Reba said that a new album will come but we have to wait a bit longer. But she doesn't seem the kind of artist to release an album without promotion.

"Streaming" is different from "Digital Downloads." No streaming means it wouldn't be available on sites like Spotify, etc. to stream for free. It would certainly be available for digital download. Also, the whole "pull a Beyonce" thing would indicate no single before the release. It would be a total "surprise" release.

My guess is Carrie Underwood.

The thing is, this may not even be true for anyone. They could have made up the whole rumor just to spark a fire. But, if it is true, my money still goes on Faith Hill. Obviously her last several singles have failed to make an impact on country radio. She actually had an album finished after she released, "American Heart," in 2012, and saw it peak at only #26. I think she scratched whatever she had had as an album, mainly because the singles she had released, were probably supposed to have been better charting songs. So it makes sense, considering she is featured on Tim's latest single, "Meanwhile Back At Mama's," which has scored Faith her first top 20 hit in 5+ years. You can see she's trying to be younger again, appealing to a younger audience, so why not do a beyonce surprise album if you want to appeal to the youth. Her husband has garnished the last 5 years to a younger audience, and has seen number 1 albums and singles, so maybe if Faith tries that, she could perhaps achieve similar success.

I think it could really be Shania who is going to release that surprise album. She claims she is still writing but she had most of the songs ready a year ago and said she just needs to find a producer.
She could have found that producer months ago already without telling the media. If it's really a surprise album she will of course not talk about the producer and that she is already recording.
I bet she is recording in a studio in the Bahamas. She spent two months (March and April) in the Bahamas between her last two runs of shows and she posted just a few pictures of spare time activities during that time. She didn't go to Canada on holiday. In a comment on Facebook she had written that she would return to Canada in February when the lake is frozen. She also hasn't been to Switzerland since Christmas and she hasn't talked about extending her Vegas residency. These are signs to me that she really could be recording.

Exactly my thoughts Melanie. Even if I suspect it'll take Shania more than two months to record an album, especially her first one without Mutt Lange.
But we'll see pretty soon. After 12+ years, 3 months are nothing

I still think we'll be waiting a while for a new album (maybe next year especially if Shania doesn't renew her Vegas contract). Just last week she mentioned she is still writing and I really think we would have heard something if Shania decided on a producer. We all know how things like that leak out on one website or another. Plus this whole "surprise album" thing doesn't sound like Shania. Especially since she hasn't had a new album in 13 years! If I was Shania and her record label I'd definitely want to promote the hell out of a new album for a month or two before it's released. She has to! If Shania doesn't, she can really kiss any chance of a comeback goodbye.

I love you Las Vegas - I'll be back in July! No time off for me, I'm writing AND getting ready for CALGARY (ssshhh... don't tell anyone, but I'm really, REALLY excited to go to Calgary! Not only do I get to sing live on stage, but SKC has a school opening) I am blessed!

A Full Beyoncé must contain ALL these elements:

  • This must be a full album, ideally but not necessarily containing a larger than average number of tracks.
  • Tracks on the album must be accompanied by videos.
  • The artist must be a global superstar, a multi-platinum act in at least one major territory, or an artist with a huge/deranged online fanbase.
  • Trickily, it must be common knowledge that the artist has been working on new material – but the release must still also, somehow, be a surprise.
  • There must have been no legitimate leaked information about the nature of the release in advance of the release. A beyoncéd album that has been trailed by an interview regarding its release could potentially be regarded as little more than a conventional album release with a shorter promotional window.
  • There must be no conventionally promoted single leading into the album’s release.
  • It must be a standalone album release – it can’t just be an addition to a previous album campaign, a deluxe edition or any sort of repackage.
  • By its nature this album will almost certainly be released digitally first – it’s impossible to send CDs into production then get them to retail without news leaking. (If an album does indeed make it to stores with literally no warning before, say, shops open at 9am, it will be permitted as a full beyoncé.)
  • The nature of the release must be convincingly presented as an artistic statement or creative choice, rather than being a transparent attempt to drum up interest in an album campaign that hasn’t been working out properly.
  • Total beyoncégeddon must be achieved across all social networks for at least 24 hours.

Strictly optional factors include instantly iconic but basically **** artwork, a Sia track, and songs about bonking.

Who could pull off a full beyoncé?
Adele, U2, Rihanna, Madonna, Janet Jackson, Taylor Swift.

she's definitely recording.
i saw her show in may, and she announced, "i love making music but it's nice to be out of the studio and on the live stage"
plus, didn't she disclosed back in 2011 that she was back in the studio?
honestly, i think she's being purposely elusive regarding this new album business--saying only that she's writing and looking for a producer--so that there's no deadline. and the perfect ending to a secretive production would be a "surprise" release.
i think this would be a smart move for shania.
for those who are regular itunes users, you'll recall that at the time of the beyoncé album release, she literally took over itunes… plus the surprise aspect brought international news attention whereas conventional album releases happen every week.
in order for shania to not only maintain her current fanbase but capture a new one, i think this would be an incredibly smart approach.
also, with her citing lana del rey, birdy, imagion dragons, pink, and matthew koma as the music she's currently listening to… it'll be interesting to see if and how that influences her own style.

I think Alison and Shania could do great things together. I would just die of happiness if those two would collaborate on an album. Have Alison do the backing vocals with Carrie Ann, Ryan and Dan. It would sound amazing, I'm sure.

But honestly, if elephants would fly I'd be a little more optimistic ;) . But it would be awesome for sure! And I guess an album like that could sell like crazy!

As much as we want new music, I don't see it happening. She is way too comfortable with her Vegas gig. With it being sold out so many nights it gives her false confidence that she is still a global superstar in the prime of her career. Releasing an album on her own would be way too scary for her. In Vegas she is 1999 Shania, not the reality of 2014 Shania. In Vegas she is able to live in a career frozen in time with nothing but hits with people adoring her. To compete against the new crop of 20-30 something artists would be too daunting for her.

I hadn't seen it that way; but, yes, Vegas is a city of dreams, illusions and memories. It's not just for celebrities. Many people who move there get caught up in the trappings and excesses of the city and cannot adjust to life outside of this 24 hr adult theme park. One thing I believe about success is that consistent, yet modest success is better than a flash in the pan. Yeah, the money's great, but you are known for that one thing rather than a series of different works. Reba's one of those people who will probably not go away anytime soon. Every generation has a favorite song. Same for Dolly. Madonna's one of those people too. There are performers who were huge a few years and now where are they? Like Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran, Backstreet Boys, New Kids on the Block, Michael Bolton, M.C. Hammer and Vanilla Ice.

And it is also different for each country. Celine Dion has disappeared from the map in the Netherlands. The fans know about her new music, but the average person doesn't. A few days ago a friend of mine asked me if I knew how Celine was doing, since she wasn't doing music anymore. I told him that she recently released some new music, and did a tour, but he didn't know. A very large radio station over here released a news message a while ago where they said they won't play Celine anymore, since people are fed up with the same old songs over and over.
And that is sad. I fear the same for Shania though. Over here, people have forgotten about her. The 30-40 year old people know/recognize some of her songs, but only a few of them know who I am talking about when I mention her name. Unfortunately....

The breaks Celine and Shania have taken, haven't done their career much good. But I guess it was good for their own personal development. They choose to do this, and they know the risks. Of course, their families are way more important than their career. But it is sad for the fans.

I mean, I have to travel over 5000 miles, spend almost 3000 dollars to see a Shania show?! That's insane!

Vegas gives her security. As a long -time fan, it was very troubling to see her personality--which was sassy and confident and much more edgy during her TWIM and COO days, turn to deep, deep insecurity. Watch any interview pre-Mutt split (Behind the Music, etc....) and Shania was all sassy and confident. Then watch her during her OWN Oprah show and she was not the same person. Very clingy, and insecure and retained none of the same sass and confidence like she did before. Mutt and her marriage was her confidence. Her divorce, voice issues and whatnot changed her as a person. And I don't see Fred as the motivator like Mutt was. Her and Mutt seemed like equals. Fred seems more of a guy who has a crush on Shania and lets Shania coast along with no pressure.....

That's what she's been looking for for a while: no pressure at all.
I remember an interview where she said that when 9/11 happened she wasn't sure releasing an album would have been wise and right.
I think that if it wasn't for Mutt and for IGGG already climbing the charts, Up! wouldn't have been released at all.

Is it just me or am the only one thats getting rather annoyed with  people complaining about Shania not releasing  a new album?.  I know me and a bunch of Shania  fans are thirsty for new music. Clearly   she is not there yet, She will  release an album when she has enough confidence do so. I think personally her Canada shows will giver her not only promotion to come and see her in vegas but way to gain more confidence and motivate her to get back out there more then anything really.

Shania has rich people problems. If she needed the money, she would have to work through her pain, like she did before stardom. After her parents tragic death, Eilleen got back to work thanks to Mary Bailey. Were not for her, Shania wouldn't have left Canada. Shania's first mistake was to distance herself from Mary after she married. Men don't leave their friends after they marry. She put her eggs in the same basket and she's paid for it. But in her Why Not series Lionel Richie implied that Shania was bs'ing with her vocal problems.

I'll concede that 911 did a number on people. Things are not as cheery as they were before. Up as an album was good, but the chemistry was not as synergistic as her previous work. The Eggar biographer said that didn't "niggle" right. Based on Shania's recent inspiration, she doesn't want to be perky. She's grown. Perhaps the label's rejected her serious work. Who knows.

Whatever the case, I don't know how many will care if releases an album in 2020. Unless she duplicates Sade's success. She can go without releasing any new work for a decade and still be relevant and sell like hotcakes globally. Time will tell.

No, it's not just you. It seems some people have no other purpose in life than waiting for a new Shania Twain album. I'm staying optimstic and I believe in her. I can wait because I have many interests and my life doesn't consist of Shania. No wonder Shania has no confidence with fans like that. Why should she believe in herself when her fans don't even believe in her? It's true that her confidence was gone, but she's regained a lot confidence in the last two years.I can't stand pessimistic people.

 Thank you Melanie  Exactly I know if i was Shania  i wouldn't have confidence in my self for the lack of people not believing in me heck wouldn't be doing Vegas. Im like you I'm  optimistic and will always believe in her . I can too wait i have better things to do then sit around and cry to Shania to please bring   out an album it will happen when it will happen.

Butters, it seems you haven't read Shania's autobiography or watched the interviews she did to promote it. If you did you would know that Shania has always been insecure and afraid of being in the spotlight and just hid her insecurities. During the Why Not series she opened up and showed us her real self and that she is only human. When I compare old interviews and appearances with new ones I see a Shania that is finally happy and enjoying life. She doesn't seem happy in the old interviews. Obviously and luckily Fred also finds that family is more important than career and pressure. Eja can be lucky that he has a caring mom and not a workaholic mom like for example Heidi Klum whose nanny knows her children better than she knows them.

I doubt most people in this public forum are crying about Shania's lack of musical output. Some are being melodramatic, lol! This isn't Days of Our Lives, hee, hee. Just because some are critical does not mean that they have no life outside of Shania. The same can be said of those who wear rose colored glasses. As for myself, I'll say that none of us know the outside of her celebrity. Just because she is talented, gracious and attractive does not make her better than me and my loved ones. In my line is work, I am criticized all the time and don't have the luxury of fans who believe in me. I have to always prove myself. That's something that I have to live with. So why should all fans coddle her? Shania proved herself years ago and if she aims to continue working in the mainstream, she will have to prove herself all over again. And this isn't something that I'm saying as an opinion; all performers and public figures undergo similar rigors regardless of occupation.

I didn’t write “most people”. I wrote “some people”. Some people here seem to be very fanatic about Shania. That’s visible in the rage and the choice of words in their posts.I am critical and call things into question, but there is a huge difference between being critical and wanting to dictade Shania what to do/what to wear and how to live her life. Of course I’m also sad that there is no new music, but I can accept things the way they are and wait. And if there will never be a new album I can accept that too. I’m not fanatic and burst with anger when the decisions Shania makes disappoint me.

These fanatic fans are kinda like people who stalk their exes because they cannot accept the separation.

 I completely agree. She doesn't want the pressure and she cannot handle it, for a number of reasons. Mutt was the pusher of her music. He gave her confidence. Like I said before, one only has to evaluate her personality during her Mutt years and after to see how low her confidence dropped. She was a shadow of herself during her Oprah series.

 Then ignore it. If you do not have a single thing to contribute to the discussion, then simply do the adult thing and ignore it instead of constantly complaining that people want to discuss it.

 Exactly. She has money now. She is free to coast on her past success. Which she has been doing since the release of Up!. 

It just is a shame. So much talent. Millions of singers would kill to be in her position and she just decides to quit being relevant and making new music. Sad. 

I still think that it goes back to fear and confidence. I just don't think she deep down wants to release a non-Mutt album.

OMG BUTTERS why  DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO PICK A FIGHT!!!!!

I don't complain unlike you Butter's. Unlike your negative prude self I stand up for my idol and defend  her. I have better things to then sit on my but and complain about  everything Shania says does . GET over it and just except  for Shania who she  is.

Millions of singers would kill to reach what Shania has already reached and for a career like hers. A shame? Sad? What? It may be sad for the fans but not for Shania. Shania is not sad about not having released a new album yet. She feels she has already reached everything/more than she ever imagined. She is finally happy and that's all that really matters, but you don't care about Shania's well being you just see her as a machine that has to spit out new music.

That's what she's been looking for for a while: no pressure at all.
I remember an interview where she said that when 9/11 happened she wasn't sure releasing an album would have been wise and right.
I think that if it wasn't for Mutt and for IGGG already climbing the charts, Up! wouldn't have been released at all.


 I completely agree. She doesn't want the pressure and she cannot handle it, for a number of reasons. Mutt was the pusher of her music. He gave her confidence. Like I said before, one only has to evaluate her personality during her Mutt years and after to see how low her confidence dropped. She was a shadow of herself during her Oprah series.


 The Why Not series was in 2011 (3 years ago). We are living in the present. Since then Shania has regained enormous confidence and like Izy wrote the Canada concerts will help her gain even more confidence.

Shania has rich people problems. If she needed the money, she would have to work through her pain, like she did before stardom. After her parents tragic death, Eilleen got back to work thanks to Mary Bailey. Were not for her, Shania wouldn't have left Canada. Shania's first mistake was to distance herself from Mary after she married. Men don't leave their friends after they marry. She put her eggs in the same basket and she's paid for it. But in her Why Not series Lionel Richie implied that Shania was bs'ing with her vocal problems.

I'll concede that 911 did a number on people. Things are not as cheery as they were before. Up as an album was good, but the chemistry was not as synergistic as her previous work. The Eggar biographer said that didn't "niggle" right. Based on Shania's recent inspiration, she doesn't want to be perky. She's grown. Perhaps the label's rejected her serious work. Who knows.

Whatever the case, I don't know how many will care if releases an album in 2020. Unless she duplicates Sade's success. She can go without releasing any new work for a decade and still be relevant and sell like hotcakes globally. Time will tell.


 Exactly. She has money now. She is free to coast on her past success. Which she has been doing since the release of Up!. 

It just is a shame. So much talent. Millions of singers would kill to be in her position and she just decides to quit being relevant and making new music. Sad. 

I still think that it goes back to fear and confidence. I just don't think she deep down wants to release a non-Mutt album. 


Millions of singers would kill to reach what Shania has already reached and for a career like hers. A shame? Sad? What? It may be sad for the fans but not for Shania. Shania is not sad about not having released a new album yet. She feels she has already reached everything/more than she ever imagined. She is finally happy and that's all that really matters, but you don't care about Shania's well being you just see her as a machine that has to spit out new music.

 


She isn't a machine? *shocked*

Thanks for bursting my balloon. I thought Shania was made of titanium and had an off/on switch.

By the way, I signed a a 10x10 pic of myself and autographed it. I just need to know where you want me to send it. With you being my biggest fan and all and only posting to make a comment when I say something.

OMG BUTTERS why  DO YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO PICK A FIGHT!!!!!

I don't complain unlike you Butter's. Unlike your negative prude self I stand up for my idol and defend  her. I have better things to then sit on my but and complain about  everything Shania says does . GET over it and just except  for Shania who she  is.


You are the one who likes to pick fights. Adults in this thread were having a conversation. Nobody was being mean. The name of the thread is, "New music, album coming soon?"A thread to discuss if new music is coming or will be coming. People were politely giving their opinions on the topic. You were the one who stopped the conversation like you usually do with your bitching and crying and moaning how mean some people are towards your perfect and amazing and swell and loving and God-like creature who normally just goes by the name Shania. And no you do not have better things to do. You have proved that once again with your, "Stop being so mean to poor little Shania" tantrum.

 So why don't you just stop  and ignore what I say, that would be the adult thing to.  Whatever i hope she  gets an album out here soon so can prove to people like you that she can  still do it without MUtt she still  the best  selling  female ,artist of all time today  She still the one and her Vegas show proves it. 

Butter's you must not have an idol or someone you look up  too in your life thats sad . Ya so  I love Shania to death   not  ashamed. nor should I be I have good reason as to why  I love my Shania . YOu just don't get that Shania  means  lot to me and to other  people. so don't be so Judgmental twoards the people who want to love an adore such a wonderful person Who cares. 

As i said before the Canadian shows will  hopefully gain her confidence and she will be ready  and willing do another  album and say ok i can do that I can do this.

I doubt that people like that will ever be satisfied. Two years after the release of the new album they’ll probably demand the next one. A few years ago it looked like Shania would never return to the live stage. Now she is back to performing live and all those people can do is complain and impatiently ask for more instead of being happy that she is at least performing live again. She could have quit everything and never sing again, but she didn’t. It was a small miracle that she went back to singing at all.

I’ve seen her latest interviews, appearances and her Vegas show. That should be enough. And comparing her new appearance to old appearances she does seem far happier now. She is glowing inside and out.

As Shania herself once said: You can’t have a happy face without a happy heart.

No thanks, not interested. Seeing your ugly character shine through your posts is more than enough.

I thought that was what you are craving for as an attention wh**e. All you want to reach with your posts is attention and provoke people.

By the way I’ve missed a comment by you on Shania’s pool picture. Must have been really shocking for you to see Shania showing that much skin and not being wrapped up in a neoprene suit. Thought you’d give us opportunity to laugh again by commenting on that picture.

Yes, and I'm the nasty and mean one.

Going around calling other people wh*ores is very peace-keeping and Shania like.

I have never called any poster a wh*re. I have never said that someone's character was ugly. I have never threatened someone's life. Like a few certain posters on this forum. Yet, I'm the "mean" and "nasty" one.

I love hypocrites. People who live in glass houses.

 You truly are obsessed with me and my posts. That is the truly amusing thing.

relax everyone, it is not worth it to get so worked up about this. Yes we all love to have our opinion known but i found out long ago that there is so much more important things to waste your energy. i have certain opinions of shania that are not what most here want to hear but i keep it to myself now knowing it would cause an argument and why waste time arguing or defending somebody that does not know you .I admire shania's talent and her work with mutt and her remaining mostly humble and normal while reaching great fame. But i don't know shania the person . Her family and friends do. i now waste my energy with my own family and friends and when and if shania has new music i will gladly listen. But please don't waste time bickering over shania. it will keep your stress level down lol and make you concentrate on what is really important in our own life. and yes butters we all have an opinion and right to voice it. But i learned to just sometimes keep it to yourself if you know it will irritate fans here. It doesn't mean you're wrong, just that you need to pick your spots and realize that i think many fans agree with you but feel a need to defend shania. Nobody is wrong but we are all fans and for the sake of peace let it go instead of the extra negative comment. That is kevy's 2 cents.

And this isn't something that I'm saying as an opinion; all performers and public figures undergo similar rigors regardless of occupation.

By the way I think one cannot compare our "normal“ work life and careers with the spotlight career of a superstar. I doubt that the pressure and criticism you experience in your work life is comparable with the high pressure of fame. So many of the greatest stars have killed themselves with drugs because they couldn’t deal with that pressure. Shania has a whole chapter about the price of fame in her book and I doubt that she wants to relive that.

I wonder what kind of songs she has been writing lately. I wonder if she is currently still even writing.

 I have been wondering that myself lately. I keep thinking, are there new love songs, are there new songs with the same vibe as MIFLAW, TDIMM, IGGG? It's interesting to think about. Really hoping it will be sooner than later that we will here these new songs. I at least want to know a few titles. Haha!

Idk, but this thing of placing "superstar[s]" on pedestals is not my cup of tea. For starters almost all of the celebrities that we see on TV crave that type of success more than anything else. Shania's relationship with fame's been contradictory because although she said that she wanted a career like Garth's (i.e. global), she also wanted a normal life. I get that; but you cannot have it both ways. However, I empathize with those artists who fell prey to drugs and it is no laughing matter.

I often see drug addicts walking the streets, whether I ride the train, drive or take a lunch break from work. These people succumbed to the pressures of life (e.g. war veterans, victims of abuse, poverty and mental illness), yet we don't hear about them because they are given labels like "junkie", "trash" and "worthless." They are only given a few chances to reintegrate themselves back into society or be labeled deviants by the medical establishment and later on, law enforcement. Something similar happens to celebrities, but their deviance is glorified and commodified via the media. That can drive them more crazy than their own problems to begin with. So when some celebs state that they wish to be treated like the rest of us, I believe it. 

The only difference between the lives of street substance abusers and drug addicted celebrities is that one made a visible contribution to society and the other one may have made an intrinsic contribution. In this individualistic and capitalist society in which we live, our worth is measured by how much money we earn and what quantifiable talents we have, in the absence of money. Though I'm not a socialist by any means, that's the way the ball rolls.

If Shania Twain lacked the talent, beauty and luck that was bestowed to her, her bio would at best, be a family affair. Does this diminish her pain and suffering? No. But let's come back to earth.
