In all honesty, it's 2 - 1 for me. I'm always skipping Poor Me to get to SWMEC and LATGG. I'm still completely addicted to LATGG btw. I can't get enough of that last chorus when it goes all crazy. I love it. This might be controversial but that song alone for me was worth the long wait.

Ok I am getting confused on all these charts. I know Tommy has to update the site where the charts are from billboard to itunes to the video. Can someone put in order of all the charts for the singles and videos. Can we please get it a little more organized so we can all keep track together. I am singing and loving all the new material. Please and thank you.

Swingin' is #81 itunes Canada
Life's about to get good #101 Canada
The greatest hits #14 itunes USA and #45 Canada

And I guess now that albums are (automatically?) sold in bundles with tickets for the tour that she will hit #1.

Yes but Shania is selling them in bundles with tour tickets, so think that #1 album is now kind of lock in. I'm not worrying too much anymore.

I agree. She will directly go to #1. By the way, I was more worried when Taylor Swift teases a video of a snake and it's seems to be a new music. Good thing she will release her new album on November 10.

Shania is rumored to be releasing the music video for SWMEC on Monday August 28th (Shania's Birthday) as a birthday present from Shania!

I wish her to let us listen to 30" of each song before the album release. THAT would be an awesome birthday present from her! But I guess August 28th would be too early to do such a thing...

It seems that Shania don't want to be international anymore... She's focused on the US and Canada

So, come back in hometown in the first place, then all over the world! ;)

FYI: Taylor Swifts new single is ASTOUNDINGLY bad. Makes me appreciate Shania's singles even more.

 I agree. Liked Taylor in the past, but this is utter rubish. Also don't like the media image she has (comes accross like a desperate attention seeker).

I agree... I liked Taylor in her first years, even if she's light years away from Shania and she'll never be like her. But her song "Red" is one of my favourite songs.

This one is pure rubbish, I don't like it AT ALL. But on YouTube the lyrics video has already more than 3,5M views in less than 24 hours...

 To be quite frank, I don't mind it at all now... the chorus gets stuck in my head (mind you, probably only because it's so simple). But honestly, the chorus is probably the worst part from this song, which is a shame really.

 To be honest, when I first heard it last night, I didn't like it all that much, but after a few listens, it really is a grower. Also to be honest, I felt the exact same way, as did a lot of people when "Shake It Off" was released 3 years ago. The music video isn't even out yet, but from the sneak peek of the video that was shown on Good Morning America this morning, the video looks like it's gonna be kind of like a sequel or copycat of her "Blank Space" music video. The video will also be released this Sunday at the VMAs.
Still hoping Shania gives us the SWMEC music video as a birthday present for her birthday Monday though.

SWMEC has fallen off the iTunes Country Singles chart completely and is no longer in the top 200. Ironically, Shania does have two songs on this chart in the top 200. The two being, AMOM (Any Man of Mine) at #70, and LATGG at #123. Hoping SWMEC reenters the chart once she performs the US Open series tomorrow and does some more promoting with the single as well as the day it get radio play.

Just wanna say Happy Birthday to Shania!

And I know SWMEC just fell off the iTunes Country Singles chart, but hopefully we can expect the SWMEC music video soon.

Have a great day, Shania Twain! <3

For sure, those who bought Shania's Greatest Hits would most likely buy NOW. Sorry Miley and Demi. ✌️ Sure spot #1 for our queen!
With SWMEC to release in Country Radio on September 18 and most likely few days after for the music video? So exciting!

Now you could see as well that the focus on itunes sales is quite misleading. The greatest hits was top 20 for most of the week in the overall genre (even top 10 for a day). Still she only enters the billboard top 200 with the greatest hits on #119. With albums physical sales will still get Shania a good first week chart position!

Shania Twain Brings Her Comeback to the U.S. Open: “I’ve Learned That I’m a Fighter”

The country singer is preparing to release her first album in 15 years.

By Paul Chi | Vanity Fair | August 29, 2017

Shania Twain is back, and it’s been a long time coming. Fifteen years since her last studio album, Twain is preparing for the September 29 release of Now, and she’s not doing it quietly. Twain performed at Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens on Monday night, during the gala opening night for the U.S. Open, for a crowd that included Alec Baldwin, Pharrell Williams, Megyn Kelly and Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Twain, who was also celebrating her 52nd birthday, told Vanity Fair before the performance that the album is “very personal and very pure,” reflecting both on her recent divorce and a bout with Lyme disease that almost ended her career.

“It was a very important thing for me to do for myself as an artist to tell my own story, and express my emotions and opinions and exercise that independence,” said Twain, who became the best-selling solo female artist in the world when her third album, Come on Over, sold over 40 million copies. “So I stepped out of my comfort zone and it was really scary taking on that challenge of responsibility alone. But, it’s already been very rewarding to have overcome that anxiety of getting started and jumping in and reflecting on the challenging times that I went through.”

Twain’s 14-year marriage to longtime producing partner Robert “Mutt” Lange ended in 2008, after she discovered he was allegedly having an affair with her close friend Marie-Anne Thiébaud. The split became tabloid fodder and continued to make headlines in 2010 when Twain revealed she was engaged to Thiébaud’s ex-husband, Frederic. The two got married in 2011.

Since her last album Twain also lost her ability to speak and sing due to dysphonia, a vocal-cord disorder which she attributes to complications from Lyme disease. She still suffers from dysphonia, but physical therapy and long warm-up sessions before each performance have helped her regain her voice.

“I’ve learned so much about myself over the years. I’ve been through a lot, but I’m in a good place,” Twain said Monday. “I’ve learned that I’m a fighter—I don’t give up. There’s a lot of determination in me.”

Once inside Arthur Ashe Stadium, Twain performed a medley of her hits as well as new songs “Life’s About to Get Good” and “Swingin’ with My Eyes Closed.”

Why not just include the 16 songs on one album? After being away for 15 years it would be nice to buy one album not a deluxe

 I get what you're saying but at the same time, it's kinda a none issue for me. I just grab the deluxe edition! To go back on your sentiment though, I never quite understand why artist bother with a deluxe edition of an album. Specially the way Shania is doing, where the deluxe track are mixed into the actual album. And when she talks about her album, she's always mentioning the 16 tracks. To me it's the record labels that do a standard and deluxe to make more money off an artist. I think the real album for Shania is the Deluxe Edition. It must of been a tough choice to remove 4 songs from her album to create a "Standard" version of it.

 Not all people can afford the Deluxe, hence there is a Standard edition.

 Yeah but if the deluxe version were the standard version and there were no such thing as deluxe version of any album, you probably would be paying roughly the same price as you're paying right now for a standard version.

REMEMBER SHANIA TWAIN FANS THAT IF WE DID NOT HAVE SHANIA TWAIN WE WOULD NOT HAVE TAYLOR SWIFT AND WHY DO WE LOVE SHANIA TWAIN BECAUSE SHE BROKE DOWN THE DOORS FOR COUNTRY ARTIST TO CROSS OVER TO POP AND VICE VERSA. SO THE REMARKS ON TAYLORS NEW STUFF IS TRASH IS COMPLETELY UNCALLED FOR BECAUSE TAYLORS FANS CAN SAY ABOUT SHANIA NEW MATERIAL BEING UTTER TRASH. I HAVE READ SEVERAL FORUMS AND HOW TAYLORS NEW SONG BASICALLY WILL MAYBE BLOW SHANIA'S COMEBACK OUT OF WATER. SO LET'S THINK ABOUT HOW DEMI, MILEY, PINK AND OTHER ACTS BASICALLY GOT BLOWN OUT OF WATER. I KNOW THIS IS IN CAPS BUT I AM CALLING AN ALL SHANIA TWAIN EMERGENCY FOR FANS TO GATHER FOR THE NEW MATERIAL TO PUSH IT ON SOCIAL MEDIA. WE NEED TO BREAK SHANIA INTO THE SOCIAL MEDIA AGE FAST IF WE WANT TO BLOW THE WANNA BES AND THOSE WHO LEARNED FROM HER OUT OF THE WATER. AGAIN I KNOW THIS IS IN CAPS BUT WE NEED TO GET THESE SINGLES OUT THERE AND TO REQUEST REQUEST, REQUEST AND KEEP THE CONVERSATION GOING.

HER OLD MATERIAL WILL DO FINE, DO AMAZING AND DO FABULOUS BUT ITS THE NEW MATERIAL WE NEED TO WORRY ABOUT THE MOST AGAIN SORRY FOR CAPS BUT WE NEED TO HELP SHANIA!!!!!!!!!

Album of the Month (September 2017): Shania Twain, ‘Now’

By Angela Stefano | The Boot | September 1, 2017

The Boot’s readers have spoken: Shania Twain‘s new album Now has been named The Boot’s September 2017 Album of the Month.

Now, set for release on Sept. 29, will be Twain’s first new album in 15 years — and, clearly, her fans are excited to hear it. Earning 63 percent of the votes in The Boot’s September 2017 Album of the Month poll, Twain beat out a number of other country music heavy-hitters to earn the Album of the Month title: Kip MooreThomas RhettDustin Lynch and more.

Twain first mentioned that she had a new album in the works way back in 2013. She continued to drop hints about that record for years, but Twain officially announced the release of Now, and revealed its cover art, in mid-June. She first performed the record’s debut single, “Life’s About to Get Good,” during her headlining set at the 2017 Stagecoach Country Music Festival in late April; a music video followed in late July, and in mid-August, Twain announced that “Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed” — which she first shared during a Today appearance on June 16 — would be Now‘s second single.

For the first time in many years, Twain needed to find a new producer for Now. She and her former producer-slash-husband, Robert John “Mutt” Lange, split up in 2008, following Lange’s affair with Twain’s best friend, Marie-Anne Thiébaud. (In an ironic twist, Twain fell in love with Frédéric Thiébaud — Marie-Anne’s former husband — and the couple got married in 2011.) The producers of “Life’s About to Get Good” are Matthew Koma and Ron Aniello; on the record, Twain also worked with Jake Gosling and Jacquire King, and co-produced herself. When doing press for Now, however, Twain once shared that she and Prince had been talking about working together prior to his death.

Fans can expect Now to be more “diverse,” Twain says, than her previous work. The singer calls this album a growth in “independence,” and though she admits it’s been “a lot of hard work,” she also says it’s “the most fun hard work I’ve ever done so far.”

Even though this album is coming after some of the darkest experiences of Twain’s life, don’t worry about it being a downer: “It is a more soulful approach to my songwriting than I’ve probably ever allowed myself to have before,” she says. “It’s fun music, too. I like to stay positive. I’ll make sure that I do some things on there that make you feel good and happy as well. I’m having a lot of fun.”

Twain embarked on what was supposed to be her final tour in 2015; now, however, Twain has reconsidered, and will be out on the road for her Shania Now Tour throughout 2018. Twain will begin her Shania Now Tour on May 3, 2018, in Tacoma, Wash.; after stopping in more than 40 cities, the tour will conclude on Aug. 4, 2018, in Las Vegas, Nev.

Shania Twain, Now Track Listing:

1. “Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed”
2. “Home Now”
3. “Light of My Life”
4. “Poor Me”
5. “Who’s Gonna Be Your Girl”
6. “More Fun”
7. “I’m Alright”
8. “Let’s Kiss and Make Up” *
9. “Where Do You Think You’re Going” *
10. “Roll Me on the River”
11. “We Got Something They Don’t”
12. “Because of You” *
13. “You Can’t Buy Love”
14. “Life’s About to Get Good”
15. “Soldier”
16. “All in All” *

* deluxe version only

Shania Twain Walked Out on Top. Now She Wants Back In.

Ms. Twain is set to release “Now,” her first album in 15 years, on Sept. 29.

By Jon Caramanica | The New York Times | September 1, 2017

shania_newyorktimes090117_1hq shania_newyorktimes090117_2hq shania_newyorktimes090117_3hq
Photographs by Ryan Pfluger

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — The last time Shania Twain released an album — the experimental country-but-not-quite opus “Up!” — it sold 874,000 copies in its first week, and went on to receive the Recording Industry Association of America’s diamond certification for 10 million copies sold, her third album in a row to reach that milestone.

That was in 2002, right around the peak of the CD age, and an era in which the pop mainstream hadn’t yet fully absorbed hip-hop. Napster had just come and gone. Barack Obama was still a state senator. Taylor Swift had just taken her first trip as a pre-teen to Nashville.

At that time, Ms. Twain was a cross-genre titan, a country singer who — with her then-husband Mutt Lange, the producer who boosted the sound of AC/DC and Def Leppard — made titanic, eclectic music that infuriated Nashville purists with its flashy embrace of pop theatrics, but still dominated the charts and made Ms. Twain a megastar with a Rolling Stone cover and rotation on MTV. On songs like “Man! I Feel Like a Woman!” and “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” she was brassy and a little salacious, a feminist triumphalist.

Much has changed in the intervening decade and a half. Pop stars aren’t as grand scaled; country music now takes as givens many of the risks Ms. Twain innovated; and Ms. Twain divorced Mr. Lange following an outlandish tabloid scandal.

And yet Ms. Twain is not apprehensive about her return, 15 years later, with her fifth album, “Now,” on Sept. 29. “I really feel like I’m coming back into worlds that I already know,” the singer, 52, said one afternoon early last month in a room at the London West Hollywood hotel here. “Now” is, like most of her albums, not quite country music, though she has swapped the excess of her last albums for something smaller and warmer. It has little to do with country music’s traditional center, but to be fair, much of modern country music has little to do with what is thought of as country music’s center.

By standing apart, Ms. Twain may well fit in, though the path hasn’t been clear thus far. The new album’s first single, “Life’s About to Get Good,” fizzled on the chart. But radio might not be Ms. Twain’s path, said Cindy Mabe, the president of Universal Music Group Nashville. “It’s the magnifier,” she said, “but frankly, does she need it? No. She’s a global icon.” She pointed out the breadth of Ms. Twain’s release plan — award shows in France and Germany, a concert in London’s Hyde Park, TV in this country and Canada, and much more — as proof that “no one has the reach that Shania does.”

As Ms. Twain spoke, she was preparing for this global rollout, surrounded by racks of clothes to wear for photo shoots and television appearances, and musing on another way the culture has changed during her break from promoting albums.

“It is way more acceptable to be different, to be a more normal shape,” she said, discussing how at her pop peak, she wore custom-made clothes when runway styles didn’t fit properly. “It’s actually fashionable to have a bigger butt now. I remember feeling, like, ‘I cannot get my butt into these pants!’”

Ms. Twain’s own life has changed radically, too. After 14 years of marriage, she separated from Mr. Lange in 2008 after he had an affair with her close friend. (The divorce was finalized in 2010.) In turn, Ms. Twain married that friend’s husband, Frédéric Thiébaud, in 2011.

“This is not my divorce record,” she insisted, and yet many songs tackle the stings of romantic mistrust and betrayal. “Still can’t believe he’d leave me to love her,” she sings on the bleakly resentful “Poor Me.” On the haunting “I’m Alright,” she sings, “You let me go, you had to have her/You told me slow, I died faster.”

Ms. Twain has always written her own songs, and her gift is still acute. “I cried a lot when I wrote. I never cried when I wrote a song ever before in my life,” she said.

“My songwriting is my diary and it is my best friend,” she added. “It’s a place I can go to where it’s not expecting anything from me. There’s just no inhibitions there. It’s a complete free place to say whatever I want to say.”

And there is no awkwardness, she said, in working through sentiments about her old relationship while in a new one. “Surely I didn’t marry a guy that can’t handle that,” she said, then added, “I wouldn’t let him hear everything that I ever write, trust me. Some the things I say in my songwriting would never find their way to being a song.

“Now” marks the first time Ms. Twain has delved into that period of her life in song, but her return to public life began in 2011 with a scarred, vulnerable autobiography, “From This Moment On,” and an off-kilter, sometimes uncomfortable docu-series on the then-fledgling Oprah Winfrey Network, “Why Not? With Shania Twain.” When it came time to re-emerge musically, she chose the “controlled ideal environment” of a Las Vegas residency, at Caesars Palace, which began in 2012 and ran for two years.

During that time period, she was also suffering physically, having lost her voice; nerves connected to her vocal cords atrophied, a side effect of Lyme disease, which she’d had since a tick bite on the “Up!” tour. Now, she likens herself to an injured athlete — she exercises her voice carefully, to ensure it’s ready when she needs it: “I can’t just get up and sing right now. I couldn’t get up and just belt out a song.”

She was always writing songs, though she thought she might have to give them to other artists to sing. Her new husband disagreed. “He would say ‘No, no, no. You’re going to sing again some day. Don’t give that song away.’” Mainly she was focused on motherhood — “baking cake, packing lunches, running back and forth to soccer and all that stuff” for Eja, her 16-year-old son with Mr. Lange — so she would concentrate on songs in her downtime, especially at night, using a simple setup of guitar, keyboard, Pro-Tools and microphone.

This went on for a few years. “I can’t be rushed,” she said, then recalled the elaborate recording processes of her old albums and started laughing. “It’s not all Mutt’s fault that everything took so long!”

The result was a set of demos that weren’t executed in any particular genre style. “I hadn’t determined feel yet,” she said. After not listening to current music at all during the songwriting process, she began to seek out possible collaborators, eventually settling on four producers: Matthew Koma (Carly Rae Jepsen, Zedd), Ron Aniello (Bruce Springsteen), Jacquire King (Tom Waits, James Bay) and Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran).

“Each time I had to send a song, I was so petrified,” she said. “My husband had to talk me through it and make me do it. He’d be like ‘I’m standing here until you press that button.’”

“They were very precious to her — I know it was a big deal to share,” said Mr. Koma, who was the first producer to work on the album, helping determine how to build a bridge from her “sarcastic and daring” older work to these vulnerable new songs, which were, he said, “part of her healing process.”

The albums that made Ms. Twain a global pop icon — “The Woman In Me” (1995), “Come On Over” (1997), “Up!” (2002) — were intimate collaborations between Ms. Twain and Mr. Lange, with practically no outside input and a clear delineation of duties. When it came to production, she recalled, “I was just a sounding board for Mutt when he was ready for me,” she said, “whereas here, I was more of a director.”

One of the choices she had to make was whether or not to make a kind of heritage album, one that eschews the contemporary music conversation in favor of something like an acoustic singer-songwriter album, or a duets project, or something more gimmicky, like one with classical arrangements — all reasonable options for a well-loved singer returning after a long hibernation. “That would have been safer,” she pointed out, but chose a different path. “I want it to be relatable, and that means sonically relatable.”

Mr. Gosling, who worked on some of the album’s darker moments, said that Ms. Twain was flexible about her songs from the start — “We never discussed where they would end” — and that there was minimal interference: “I didn’t speak to any A & R person. I didn’t even know if she was on a label, to be honest.”

Her other bridge to contemporary music is Eja, who makes music himself — dance music, mostly. When Ms. Twain was scrupulously avoiding listening to current music, she couldn’t avoid hearing the thumping beats coming from behind his bedroom door. There are a couple of club-music echoes on her album, on “Let’s Kiss and Make Up,” and the beginning of “Poor Me,” which resembles the intro of the Chainsmokers’ “Don’t Let Me Down.”

“He doesn’t want to be a performer, so he’s more in his dad’s realm of things,” Ms. Twain said.

When Eja was younger, he would ask his mother to write songs with him. “I’m like, ‘You know I’m writing for my own album right now!’” Lately, she’s been giving him some of her vocal stem files to fiddle around with, but nevertheless she’s careful to remind him of the pitfalls of devoting too much energy to someone else’s vision: “You have to have your own thing.”

This is the first time we read something about "Let's Kiss And Make Up". I have to say, those "Deluxe version songs" intrigue me deeply...

I believe this is one of her best interview/article to date. I quite enjoyed reading it. Most of her interviews as of lately have been very, very repetitive with literally the same quotes.

Grammy Watch: Which September Releases Could Make Noise at the 2018 Ceremony

By Jason Lipshutz | Billboard | September 1, 2017 

dave-grohl-miley-cyrus-shania-twain-2017

With the eligibility period closing on September 30, here's how projects by Miley Cyrus, Foo Fighters and more could fare.

In the months leading up to the 59th Grammy Awards this January, Billboard will be featuring Grammy Watch, a weekly column looking at the artists, music and trends likely to be featured heavily at this year's ceremonies. This week: Jason Lipshutz rounds up the major September albums that could find themselves as Grammy contenders when nominations are announced this fall.

We’re one month away — not from the Grammys themselves, or even the nominations, but from knowing everything that could potentially compete at the 2018 ceremonies. Oct. 1, 2016 through Sept. 30, 2017 marks the eligibility period for the 2018 Grammy Awards, which means artists now have 30 days to release a bid for contention when the nominations are announced Nov. 28 and the awards are held on Jan. 28, 2018.

And just like how the most Oscar-baiting film releases are often released in December to stay fresh in Academy minds, September typically holds a handful of Grammy-hopeful album and song releases — sometimes aiming for the Big Four categories, other times trying to snag a genre nod or two. Last year, for instance, albums by Bon Iver and Solange scooped up 2017 Grammy nominations after being released in late September.

Right now, we have 11 out of the 12 months of eligibility at our disposal; we can already size up the main storyline of the 2018 Grammys (we think) and start slotting in most of the more obvious nominations. Yet there are still a handful of big names putting out projects in September, with the opportunity to disrupt the Grammys race if certain tides turn in their favor.

The Pop A-Listers

Is Demi Lovato now a bankable Grammy contender? The mainstream vet finally scored her first career nomination last year, as Confident earned a spot in the Best Pop Vocal Album race that Adele’s 25 had zero shot at losing (Lovato also performed at the ceremony, as part of a Bee Gees tribute). That album was driven by Top 40 hits like “Cool for the Summer” and the title track; Lovato currently has another with “Sorry Not Sorry,” which climbs another seven spots to No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week.

The pop categories are always pretty packed with potential contenders, but “Sorry Not Sorry” could feasibly score a Best Pop Solo Performance nod, and Confident follow-up Tell Me You Love Me -- conveniently out Sept. 29 -- could give Demi a repeat in the pop album category.

Ditto Miley Cyrus, whose last album Bangerz made the Best Pop Vocal Album shortlist at the 2015 ceremony despite clearly not being aimed at older Grammy voters. For Younger Now, also out Sept. 29, Cyrus has seemingly set twerking and tongue-wagging aside for a streamlined pop-rock sound — and that signaling of maturation could pay off come Grammy season.

"I think Miley Cyrus set up herself, consciously and unconsciously, to be a potential Grammy candidate,” says Tom DeSavia, a music industry veteran and author, as well as a longtime Grammy voter. “She’s definitely firmly got her feet planted in being sort of the new good establishment, and I mean that [to be] complimentary.”

DeSavia uses Cyrus’ recent performance at the MTV Video Music Awards as an example of the singer’s updated messaging: Her first live take on the Younger Now title track was built around a comedic, old-people-dressed-cool set piece, which was neither too button-pushing nor got in the way of Cyrus’ extended vocal runs on the track. "She really came back with the classic, multi-generational pop,” DeSavia notes.

The problem for Cyrus is that neither single released from Younger Now -- the title track and “Malibu”-- has yet to really dominate Top 40 radio; Bangerz songs like “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball” may not have had Grammy voters in mind, but at least they were ubiquitous. If her new album receives raves upon its release, then Cyrus could find herself in a Lorde-like situation, as an A-lister with a critically acclaimed pop project that can overcome an underperformance at radio. If Younger Now gets a lukewarm response, however, that makes her bid for a Big Four nod — or even a pop category appearance — all the more difficult.

The Returning Country Queen

Another big project dropping in the final days of Grammy eligibility: Shania Twain’s long-awaited studio return. Now, due out Sept. 29, marks the first album in a whopping 15 years from Twain, whose four albums released between 1993 and 2002 were such commercial monsters that calling them “platinum” doesn’t really do them justice -- her last two albums, Come On Over and Up!, combine for over 21 million copies sold on their own, according to Nielsen Music.

Just like Twain has been something of a sleeping giant in the country world for over a decade, the 52-year-old legend should be considered an artist capable of having a huge impact on the Grammy race when Now is released. She’s a five-time Grammy winner who’s been nominated in all four of the major categories, including album of the year for Come On Over (it lost to Lauryn Hill’s The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill in 1999). Twain has not returned to the type of country airplay she enjoyed during her commercial zenith, but that might not matter: Grammy voters might be swayed by the comeback story surrounding Now, especially if the album is solid (first single “Life’s About to Get Good” suggests that it will be) and if it impacts country-pop listeners the right way.

“It’s very interesting, the ‘return of the icon’ thing,” DeSavia says. “People want her back in an era where we are producing less and less iconic acts that are breaking these kinds of records. There are new ones coming up, absolutely, but we haven’t had the return of someone so iconic… We can’t discredit how big she is, and so there is a sentimentality vote there for sure.”

Will that be enough for a handful of country category nominations… or maybe even a general category slot? “Let me put it this way,” DeSavia says. “There’s nothing that tells me this won’t be a huge comeback.”

The Rock Steadies

September is also loaded with albums that will try to muscle their way into either the Best Rock Album or Best Alternative Music Album category, respectively. LCD Soundsystem’s American Dream has already arrived to strong reviews, and buzz is very positive around The National’s Sleep Well Beast, out Sept. 8. Meanwhile, The Killers have been absent from any Grammys categories since 2007, but will try to change that with their ambitious fifth full-length Wonderful Wonderful, which arrives Sept. 22. One week earlier, Foo Fighters return with Concrete and Gold, their first album in three years.

The latter is the most intriguing when it comes to Grammy potential. Dave Grohl and co. have historically been Grammy darlings as both consistent telecast performers and award winners, and have even racked up a pair of Album of the Year nominations, for Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace and Wasting Light. Even though Wasting Light lost out to Adele’s blockbuster 21 for AOTY in 2012, the Foos couldn’t feel that bad about it: the group won all five of the other categories it was nominated in, including a clean sweep of the rock categories.

In 2014, the band unveiled Sonic Highways, a concept album that was accompanied by a documentary TV series and was presented as eight songs recorded in eight cities containing eight styles. But the project did not engrain itself to Grammy voters, who gave the Foos a paltry-for-them two nominations and zero wins for the project. Three years later, Concrete and Gold is being presented as a back-to-basics Foo Fighters album, with a top 10 hit on the Rock Songs chart in lead single “Run,” and no grand theme running through its 11 tracks.

"They’ve definitely earned their stripes and certainly produced great records,” DeSavia says of the band. Will that be enough for the Foo Fighters to be rock category shoo-ins, or return to the Album of the Year category? It will depend on the reception to Concrete and Gold — and, pulling back a bit, whether or not the tactic of a September release really does help the project’s overall chances.

"The flip side of the story is the records that came out when eligibility opened,” DeSavia continues, citing Lady Gaga’s Joanne album, which was released in early October 2016 and could compete at the 2018 Grammys. "They’re sort of out of mind, because we’re always in a contemporary mindset and these bigger records are coming out as we’re heading to the fourth quarter. That sort of thing shouldn’t be a punishment. We’re discounting about 10 months of releases that came out earlier in the year, and we shouldn’t be."

Oh c'mon she deserves AT LEAST Grammy nominations in Country fields; if the album gets attentions AND literally sleeps in Billboard200 Top10 for AT LEAST 4 weeks, we can hope a Grammy nomination in general field (Album of the year!), but she has to come along with a smash bomb single a la YSTO: I'm happy 4 LATGG succes on AC chart, but is not enough; and SWMEC is not a success (not yet!)...

I was watching the US Open today and they showed a Shania Twain feature where the song "We Got Something They Don't" was playing.

I thought I would never sing again': Shania Twain on how she overcame the challenges behind her 15-year hiatus

By Laura Silverman For You Magazine | Daily Mail - UK | September 2, 2017

At the height of her fame, country singer Shania Twain disappeared from the limelight, having lost both her husband and her voice. She tells Laura Silverman how she overcame it all to write her first album in 15 years.

In 2001 Shania Twain seemed to be on top of the world. With smash hits including ‘Man! I Feel Like A Woman’ and ‘That Don’t Impress Me Much’, as well as one of the biggest-selling albums of all time (Come On Over), a loving husband and a newborn baby son, the singer truly had it all.

But a few years later her life began to fall apart. The Canadian singer battled exhaustion as her gruelling schedule took its toll. The aches, pains and dizziness that she couldn’t shift were diagnosed as Lyme disease, and then she discovered the worst side-effect of all: she developed dysphonia, the inability to use her vocal cords normally. Struggling to speak, let alone sing, Shania retreated to the home in Switzerland that she shared with her husband and songwriting partner, legendary producer Robert ‘Mutt’ Lange, and their son Eja, only for him to leave her for their assistant and her friend Marie-Anne Thiébaud in 2008 after 15 years of marriage.

Later, in a strange twist, Shania developed a connection with Marie-Anne’s ex-husband Frédéric. The pair fell in love and married in 2011. In the same year, Shania published her memoir, From This Moment On, in which she revealed a childhood of poverty and abuse at the hands of her step-and adoptive father Jerry and the impact of his death along with her mother in a car crash in 1987 when Shania was just 21.

Today, aged 52, she is back with a new album, Now, in which she has written with searing honesty about the past 15 years.

I’m so grateful that my mother pushed me. She made me sing in clubs for money as a child because we were so poor. I hated being the centre of attention, but I loved music. My relationship with my parents was difficult but I still felt loved. They tried their best.

At the height of my success in the late 1990s, I worked 15 hours a day, seven days a week. My weight plummeted, I was tired from malnutrition and I started slurring my words. I was so determined to carry on that I pushed through. I was grateful to be doing well and going on tour, and I didn’t want to appear weak.

I felt uncomfortable with being a celebrity. In 1999 my then husband Mutt and I bought a chalet in Switzerland where we could have some seclusion. My closest friend was my horse.

Then I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. It took me almost six months to recover. I had begun blacking out every three minutes on the Up! tour in 2004. I struggled to hold the microphone because my arms were cramping like crazy, I hardly slept because I ached so much and I was very dizzy. I was terrified about what was happening. I should have stopped performing, but I kept going like an idiot. Sometimes I can be too determined. I assumed it was just fatigue.

I thought I would never sing again. I lost control of my voice and by 2008 I couldn’t project – I couldn’t even call out to the dog. I saw dozens of voice specialists but no one could help me. I initially put it down to exhaustion, thinking, ‘I’m a mother, I’m on the road, I’ve been doing this nonstop for all these years – who wouldn’t be tired?’ But I wasn’t physically tired of the lifestyle, I just couldn’t sing. It was like a part of me had died. I was grieving for the loss of the one thing I really enjoyed. The way I expressed myself was gone. It was devastating.

When my marriage broke down, I lost trust in people. I sank into depression and started questioning everything. I tortured myself over what happened and why. I assumed my voice problem must be down to the fears and anxieties I’d had throughout my life: my childhood, my failed relationship. I thought, ‘What else can it be?’ I met [alternative medicine guru] Deepak Chopra and read self-help books by Dr Gordon Livingston, a psychiatrist who wrote about loss. I went through a lot of self-evaluation. I had put my guard up to protect myself, but Deepak showed me that to disengage emotionally was no way to live.

It was therapeutic to write my autobiography, but it wasn’t the same as writing songs. I love the way you can say something in three minutes of music. I write songs because I want to be relatable and I want to be understood.

I wrote my 2011 single ‘Today is Your Day’ to cheer myself up. I wasn’t ready to give up on my voice. I knew it had gone for a reason and I was going to find out what it was. I had become so low. Finally, I saw a light at the end of it all. I was climbing my way out of the hole.

A head and neck cancer surgeon saved my voice. He stuck five long needles into my larynx and found that I had nerve damage caused by Lyme disease. The nerves attached to my vocal cords no longer work properly. The condition is permanent. I’ve had hours of physiotherapy and speech therapy. I’m back on track, but it’s a long road. It’s a miracle I can sing at all. I booked a Las Vegas residency in 2012 to force my recovery, but it was terrifying. I went into it blindly; there was no guarantee that I’d be able to pull it off.

I’ve had to accept that my voice will never be the same again. I will never sing my old hits like I used to. I’ve had to relearn how to use my voice. When I sing a powerful note, it’s in a different place. It wasn’t until Vegas that I thought about a real comeback. It would have been comfortable to stick with old material, but I had something to say.

It was strange to write my new album entirely alone. Mutt had been my sounding board for 15 years. Now I didn’t have his feedback or a direction, or even any objectivity. I didn’t know how to begin, I didn’t know the end and I had no map. I was out somewhere in no-man’s-land – but it was somewhere I love. Writing an album has been empowering.

My new songs are the most personal I have ever shared. I’ve written about feeling unappreciated in my marriage and about fighting back against pain. I’ve done my fair share of self-pitying and that’s in there, too. Writing has helped me come to terms with things emotionally. The album is about going from feeling lost to found, from feeling sad to happy. I have learnt how vulnerable I can be.

My biggest fear wasn’t being exposed, it was my voice. I can get away with more when I perform because I can improvise. An album is a bigger commitment because people can analyse it. I had to be sure I was ready – physically, psychologically and emotionally. Having my husband Frédéric beside me is a great support. He is a very romantic man.

My son Eja has never known me as Shania; to him I’m just Mum. I gave up touring when he was two, so Shania is not the person who raised him. We’re very close. He’s 16 and is into music.

I forced myself to become bilingual when Eja was born because I wanted French to be his first language [they live in the French-speaking part of Switzerland]. He went to a French school and didn’t speak English until he was four and a half.

I’m an old-fashioned mum. I like sit-down dinners with no phones on the table. I’m a good listener. My son must mind his manners and look people in the eye. I love domestic life. Eja has had a very normal childhood: he wasn’t tutored or raised by nannies. I like cooking his weekend breakfast and making his lunch. I love taking him to his sports games and driving to his school and meeting his friends.

In my 40s I felt very insecure. At first I resisted the changes in my body and blamed the cellulite on my stomach and the new layer of fat on emotional stress. I ate healthily – I’ve been vegetarian for more than 20 years – and exercised more, but the fat was hard to shift. I’ve just turned 52, but the number isn’t what bothers me. Wasting time bothers me.

What works for me now isn’t what worked for me when I was younger. I realise that being stubborn and not adapting is a mistake. My body is changing. When your boobs are falling in a different place, you just have to find a new brand of bra. I’m not fine with dying tomorrow, but I am going to die, and I’m ageing every day. It would be a mistake to fight it by trying to fit into the skin I was in and the clothes I used to wear. There’s no turning back. This is who I am right now and I’m OK with that.

Shania will perform at Radio 2’s Live in Hyde Park festival on 10 September. Her new album Now will be released on Virgin EMI on 29 September

I like how Shania is an open book! When you look at pass interview in the earlier stage of her career she was, open but very private at the same time, which I think was a lot because of Mutt wanting to be out of the spot light. The way she talks now, she's very more relatable and honest. I love how to me, she seems just like a regular ordinary person and not this huge celebrity! I guess at her age, she has nothing to lose now. More celebrities should follow in her foot steps!
