Shania Twain breaks down her 2017 comeback album - late Spring release


Looks like Shania's new album will be released in late Spring. So that sounds like late April or May.

Shania Twain breaks down her 2017 comeback album

By Kevin O'Donnell | Entertainment Weekly | December 21, 2016 at 8:00am EST

When you’ve sold a bajillion albums and become one of the best-selling female artists in history, you can be allowed a little time off. So it’s been for country-pop queen Shania Twain. But after her successful two-year Las Vegas residency and 2015’s Rock This Country tour, she’s finally returning with a follow-up to 2002’s diamond-certified Up! “I’m so overdue!” says the 51-year-old. “I feel like I just need to keep making albums now.”

For her fifth studio LP, due in late Spring of 2017, Twain drew upon years of melodic and lyrical ideas that she had stored on various recording devices. “There’s, like, five of them,” she says with a laugh. “I’m forever backing things up. So if it’s a rainy day or I’m bored, I’ll go through my electronics and listen to things. They’ll have titles like ‘Fun beat’ or ‘Fab memory.’” Over the years, she’s laid down demos at home using GarageBand and Pro Tools. “It’s really fun to experiment with arrangements,” she says. “I did so many of my backing vocal arrangements — just being able to have all these multitracks and moving them around and experimenting that way. By the time I got into the studio, I was already quite familiar with what I wanted to do.”

Armed with those gigabytes of intel, Twain teamed up with producers Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, One Direction), Ron Aniello (Bruce Springsteen), Jacquire King (Kings of Leon), and songwriter-producer Matthew Koma to hone the material. “They’re all very different from each other,” she says of her collaborators. “And I’m a very focused person in the studio. It’s not like it’s not fun, but the joy comes in watching the whole thing grow and getting locked into that creative mode — that’s so indulgent for me.”

Twain says the finished album includes “painful and melancholy ballads that evolved into completely upbeat songs” to “triumphant” girl-power rockers. Although her ex-husband Mutt Lange, who produced Up! and 1997’s record-breaking Come On Over, is out of the picture, Twain is as confident as ever about her new material. “By the end [of the recording process], I felt like I had climbed a huge mountain and was standing on top of it, looking God in the eye, and saying, ‘I’m here! What do I gotta do next?’”

So that means first single late February/early March.
I'm happy she's opening a bit about the new songs, I can't wait to listen to those painful and melancholy ballads. She has always written great ballads.
There are still at least two solid months to wait but I guess we'll soon have more interviews and details to kill the wait.

Woo! This is the first article that makes it actually seem like an album exists. I'm cautiously optimistic that "late spring 2017" is accurate--would rather see an official announcement from Shan or Universal/Mercury.

Did I read correct that some of the songs are emotional but she turned them in to upbeat songs? I always thought up beat meant fun and dance sorta thing. Basically what kind of album is this? Pop? Country? Soul? Any ideas anyone?

Based on the group of producers Shania worked with, the album most likely will lean heavily towards Pop.

Shania Twain talks first new studio album in over a decade

By Cindy Watts | The Tennessean | December 30, 2016

Shania Twain has been hinting at a new album on social media for more than a year — posting pictures on herself writing songs and recording in the studio. Recently, the “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” singer confirmed her fifth studio album is in the works.

“It’s been a lot of hard work, but the most fun hard work I’ve ever done,” Twain said of the recording process. “I’ve had to learn a lot about independence on this album.”

Twain, who has sold more than 75 million albums, said that while her new album “almost stylistically jumps around,” her voice and songwriting provide the common thread.

“I wrote all of the songs, so there’s a continuity there, I think, emotionally,” she said. “There might be more variety on this album than on any (of my) other albums. There will be some surprises on there. I think there are a couple of things on there that are more classic me from the past. It’s relatable.”

A title and release date haven't been revealed. When Twain’s new studio album does become available, it will be the singer’s first collection of new material in well over a decade.
