I was most definitely wrong... NOW is actually brilliant. The more I listen to it I'm like... okay I get this now. Sonically it was very unusual to me at first but when I found myself crying while listening to Where Do You Think You're Going, it finally clicked.


 My first listen I was like "hmm, this may not be on replay at all, but man oh man is this album great! I think We Got Something They Don't is still my favourite with Roll Me On The River a close second. Those two songs just have something about them. I really get Elton John, Paul McCartney vibes. Either or would be a great single for Fall. Also, it's the first time for me that bonus track are not my favourite. For that reason, I'm glad she mixed them up in the album because I think I'd get bored listening to them. I guess I don't mind Because Of You or All In All (It's actually a great song)

I think this should be the singles roll out:

1. Life's About To Get Good (definitely a great first choice)
2. Swingin' With My Eyes Closed (if it weren't that she already had the video filmed, I would of scraped this as a single)
3. We Got Something They Don't
4. Soldier
5. Roll Me On The River
6. Who's Gonna Be Your Girl


 Don't know my dear, I have different singles choices:

1. Life's about to get good - simply PERFECT!

2. Swingin' with my eyes closed - it could ok at least 2 weeks ago, now it's more different to connect with, but it MUST be a single!

3. Soldier - Christmas single with a touchin' music video; a smash hit in Country and AC genres!

4. Home now - april single with a black and white music video on the road, with open spaces, skyes and clouds; the album booklet concept.

With those 4 singles, the album will sell to Diamond certification!!! :D

"Let's be honest, let's be open
We're not broken, not yet
It's not easy,
Trying to please me
I'm not perfect.
I know that."

That is art right there! This song is such a masterpiece!


 The lyrics are good but I don't like the arrangement. :(


 Oh I see. I was thinking maybe you all didn't like the song cause it's kind of the most poppy song on NOW. I mean, this is definitely a new sound and style for Shania, but maybe the reason I like it, is cause I actually do listen to this type of music sometimes myself, and so Shania experimenting with that sound, I actually am into, as funny as that may sound. :P 

But yes, the lyrics is one of the best parts of the song, so maybe that's also why I like it. If the lyrics were terrible, it would be a pretty skip-able song.

It's not my fav song because it reminds me of Cheerleader, you know that song that was overplayed 2 years ago. I'm still trying to get over it. Don't get me wrong, I still like this song but it's just a little tainted. 

UPDATE... Just listen to it, not that bad I guess, there's a verse in the there, the middle 8 I think, reminds me of something in the style of the Up! album... the way she sings that is.

 Oh now, I get it. Yeah, I remember that song and how overplayed it was a couple of years ago. Well now that I think about it, this song in particular does have that 2015 kinda sound. This is probably the only song on NOW that feels a bit more 2015ish then 2017, but that's just me. But yeah, even 2 years ago, I was kinda obsessed with this one album that was released that year called "Revival" by Selena Gomez, and this song "Let's Kiss and Make Up" kinda reminds me of a song from that album called "Me and The Rhythm", which is a very underrated song if you ask me. Still wonder to this day why Selena didn't release it as a single, but yeah "Let's Kiss and Make Up" is kind of like the "Me and The Rhythm" of NOW. It's also quite catchy, if you listen to it enough.

And yes, I thought the same thing, maybe that's another reason why I like it, parts of the song do remind me of the style of songs she would sing on the UP! album, and now that I think about it, it could probably fit on the UP! album quite nicely.

Let me ask you again. I thought I understood the meaning of "Roll me on the river" phrase but now I'm not so sure. Could you explain? Is it a metaphor?


 I am having problems with Swingin too and Rolling too. I want to connect and understand it but what does it all mean do you think?


 Alright, I'm gonna try to explain Swingin' to the best of my capabilities, which honestly, I'm a scatter brain so, yeah ha

In general the song is about taking a chance at life or whatever obstacle you may find in your path. THE FIRST VERSE (Summer's here, bring it on, another year, one more beer, another song...) She's priming herself up, getting pumped up to do whatever it is she's  getting ready to do (possibly in regards to taking a "SWING" at her music career again, hence the first track of the album) THE CHORUS (I'm Swingin'... Got my hair down, wide open road... Only god know, how far it goes...Fist up in the air, go like we don't care...) She's swinging full force ahead. Taking the chance, no matter the outcome. The SECOND VERSE (Life is short... Nothing sure in this world... I kiss you once...) pretty much is "life's too short" to sit back and do nothing, take the risk. The outcome can be good!

To me, this song is pretty self explanatory but I guess the word "Swingin" itself can take multiple meaning also. Shania used the reference of a baby coming out of the woom his eyes close and swinging his little arms, breathing his first breath of life in a unknown world or a boxer getting ready to fight in the ring, not knowing what the outcome will be until it finished and done with. I also believe this is the song the she wrote while she was watching a baseball game from the skybox because she was sick... so metaphor for Swingin' at a baseball.


 Thank you. I get Swingin a little more now. The whole summer is here and I kiss you once thing and a few other threw me off and the video I am trying to connect too. Now Roll me on the River has me asking the same thing too but I think its like Garth Brooks "The River" I don't know but I think she is telling about living life and keep fighting!!!

Definitely no longer country, Shania isn't really mainstream anymore either

ALBUM REVIEW: Now, by Shania Twain

By Joseph Brant | Out and About Nashville | September 30, 2017

I’ve listened to the brand new album from Shania Twain, Now, just one time. These are the highlights:

"Who’s Gonna Be Your Girl"
"I’m Alright"
"All In All"
"Life’s About To Get Good"
"Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed"

There are some serious duds, mostly due to their easy, predictable lyrics:

"More Fun"
"You Can’t Buy Love"

The rest are forgettable.

I don’t hate “Poor Me,” but it, along with “I’m Alright,” is a little too maudlin, depressing. Which leads me to theme: I don’t know what this album is about or what it’s trying to say, and to whom. This would’ve been the perfect time for a concept album, similarly to what Miranda Lambert did with her latest. The lyrics for a few of the songs indicate that Shania was interested in excavating the demise of her relationship with Mutt Lange to some degree; “Life’s About to Get Good” and “I’m Alright,” in particular.

The production is way over the top. At times her voice is front and center, and loud, despite instruments playing at maximum volume already. How this music will play live, I can’t imagine. Clearly her vocal was run through a battalion of equipment before it landed on the album.

Two songs especially disappoint because the production suggested good things that the lyrics didn’t deliver. At the opening of both “Home Now” and “We Got Something They Don’t” I thought to myself Okay, here we go! This one sounds like it’s gonna be gooood but it didn’t happen.

And friends, this ain’t country… in the least. At times I heard sounds similar to 1970s Elton John, 80s rock (surprise surprise, though with an entirely new set of producers it kinda is a surprise). The hook of “Home Now” reminds me of an album track from Culture Club. My instinct, and again I’ve only heard this album once, is that this doesn’t fit into the current music marketplace anywhere.

It presents the question: what should we expect from Shania Twain? After a 15 year hiatus, a well-documented divorce and remarriage, Lyme disease and its related vocal struggles, I expected a little more introspection, everything inside “Life’s About to Get Good” but stretched out to span an entire album. Definitely some fun songs, but “You Can’t Buy Fun” doesn’t come close. There is no “Man! I Feel Like a Woman” here, though “Life’s About to Get Good” was aiming for that same energy.

Despite her presence everywhere online, on TV, during the run-up to this release, I think that because there is no single or specific genre attached to the album hurts its chances of success. After 15 years, this is a comeback album so if it doesn’t revolutionize anything then you gotta give the fans something familiar but elevated. That it doesn’t fit in the current (meaning: R&B-infused) mainstream means there is no place for these songs to land.

At radio, which promotion team would take this on?

As for streaming, we’ll know soon enough if listeners respond well enough to build a story.

Shania was, for better or worse, a country trailblazer. By now, “Any Man of Mine” and “Man I Feel Like A Woman” are 90s country classics. “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under” remains her most underrated contribution to country as a genre. A shuffle, with fiddles and drums blowing out of the speakers, all cranked up to 11?!  It far surpasses any of the bigger hits as it regards Country Music (except for perhaps “No One Needs to Know”).

This album reminds of the crossover attempts by Lee Ann Womack and Faith Hill. Each  wanted to engage a bigger audience but didn’t really know how to do it. Or perhaps their industry handlers didn’t know how to do it. The best hook on the album comes from “Life’s About to Get Good,” but where can we genuinely expect to hear it other than the grocery store? I’d say the mall but who goes to the mall anymore.

Twitter war ongoing. Demi and Miley fans can't believe that our queen is outselling them. Some tweets:
1. Cheating with ticket bundle on Now Tour
2. Fans were older (50s) and they don't know the streaming era.
3. Who buys CD nowadays? Miley and Demi were ahead on iTunes
4. How come Shania is doing good on physical sales where in fact stores won't stock much CDs, etc.

Someone tweet why Shania is #1
1. Her pre-order sale started since June
2. She is Shania ❤️

I just have to say this, cause I feel like nobody else is... but I don't think of Shania as cheating just because of the ticket bundle for her NOW tour, cause anyone that buys a ticket to one of her shows on her upcoming tour most likely is gonna buy the album anyway, not to mention, for the ones buying multiple tickets, since you get a CD for each ticket you buy, those most likely are for families wanting to go to one of her concerts next year, and so everybody in the family gets her new album in the process, not to mention, I've seen some complainers on Twitter, complaining about how expensive her tickets are, so yeah, it's not as bad as it seems once you truly think about it. Plus, Shania has virtually been out of the spotlight (with new music) for nearly 15 years, 13 if you include her new songs featured on her Greatest Hits CD.

I just realized the guy that tweeted 

1. Shania's album has been on pre-order since June. Duh.
2. She's Shania

Is the "LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!" guy LOL
You know back in 2007 when Britney Spears went crazy and had her meltdown and everything and then made her comeback. That's pretty cool Chris Crocker is a Shania fan!

 Definitely he is a Shania fan. On a different note, I think Billboard do not count tour bundles. So if the predictions were correct, Shania is outselling both Demi and Miley even they combine their sales and what more if they included the bundles. Surely it is indeed Runaway Twain. 😁

Well really, I was thinking. How can albums received with tour tickets count on the charts because those albums are not purchased? They’re a give away with a purchase of a ticket. So to me it would have to be album sales alone, along with digital albums and streaming.

I don't think it's unfair to count CDs as part of ticket bundles. It's not like those people are getting a surprise CD. They know they're buying ticket + CD. If nothing else, imagine $12 of the ticket price covers the CD. It's not like they AREN'T paying for it.

Songs are really in my heart right now: Home now, Who's gonna be your girl, I'm alright!

And Soldier is so sweet...

Don't know why, but I feel this album more country than others, at least more than UP!

 

And please US, pushin' adds in country radios 4 SWMEC! Where are the adds???

Soldier just got better from me after realizing the first verse is the person (Shania) talking to a love one and the second one is the love one, who has since passed away, talking to the person left behind. Wow!

I really hope she'll release as a Christmas single this year ;)

I really hope this is part of Shania's plan all along, especially with that movie "Thank You For Service" being released this month, "Soldier" should become the third official single from NOW! I still hope this era will be a full era and not short lived or anything... and what I mean by that is, I hope we get at least 5 or 6 singles from NOW! Trust me, despite what our immediate reactions were of some of the songs when we listened to NOW the first time a couple of days ago, there is some potential hits here, and I honestly feel like Now is either going to be a very underrated comeback album or it's going to be an album that we will truly start to appreciate after the era has ended, unfortunately. But I sure hope there's some of us that still love this album NOW while it is still the current era and the comeback of our queen! ;)

Okay this is JUST MY OPINION. I am a huge fan and always will be.

I've listened to the album all weekend. I'm a die hard country fan but i do also like Pop etc and i just don't know where this album fits - there's no steady genre to it. I love "I'm Alright" - esp the ending (unfortunately probably due to the enhanced harmonies etc), but most of the songs just don't stand out and lyrics / sounds are fairly simple and similar. She's not the same and if she wasn't Shania - i'd be listening to Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Maddie & Tae etc and not giving this a second look. Feel a bit sorry for Fred because the majority include her heartbreak with Mutt. She's visibly not confident with her voice and self anymore, but i just feel disappointed that this comeback album is 'okay' and not kick-ass like her other 3 were.

Hate to say it, but I think this album will echo the influence that Mutt had on her last 3 albums...

The thing that worries me, is that the majority of the UK are going to see Shania because of her major hits plus the fact she's not been here in what, 15yrs? Not because of her new songs. The 2 new songs she played at Hyde Park in London were received well and people knew the lyrics, but the majority of people going to concerts next year will expect old hits and for her new album to be similar - not everyone will know the struggles with her voice or realise she's not the same anymore. I just hope her voice holds up with this massive tour, and she does play a few of the old crowd-pleasers.

Guna keep listening to the album and get into the lyrics more - can't wait to see how she gets on with it. I'll be one of her biggest fans whatever, despite this probably being one of my least fav albums. I just hope that if she's planning to do future material, that she takes into account what her fans say from this, and maybe she should go back to her country roots that made her what she is.

I disagree with you, ScotsGirl. I think this album has great potential to become huge, with time, like a fine wine. Also I want Shania to do with her music is what feels right or organic to her. She needs to please herself first with her material. I'd feel cheated if she release something that she doesn't like or support full heartedly just to please her fans who can't let go of her past formula. At this point in her career she has nothing to lose or to prove. I just want her to have fun with it and do what comes naturally to her first.

My first listen to this album, was in the car on my way to work and to be honest, I was at first a little bit disappointed. At first listen, I dislike many of the slow songs I said to myself, oh I think I'll be skipping quite a few tracks. Once I got home that day, I sat down, look up the lyrics and listened to it again and fell it love with everything about it. The more I listen, I keep finding hints of old Shania, the way she sings certain words or certain parts in the music itself. I'll catch myself thinking "Oh this could fit on this album, or that album or this certain part reminds of this song of hers." This is really not so far off from her older stuff to be quite honest. Specially her singing. Change the music and most of these songs could fit on TWIM, COO, or even UP! You just got to take it all in and dissect it.

The more I listen to the album, the 2 songs that really stick with me and hit home for me without question is "Who's Gonna Be Your Girl" and "All In All". These 2 songs need to be singles. I'm all for these 2 being singles after "Soldier", which I hope she still releases as a single too.

Tommy that site saying it will be number 1 is based on what? She has never hit 1 on the iTunes albums chart in the us only in the country category? Alao does Amazon count for sales with Billboard too?

Hits Daily Double is projecting the album will be No. 1 based on mostly physical and digital album sales combined with a little streaming. Yes, album sales from Amazon count for sales too.

 Question: Billboard 200 Albums chart is based on physical sales + digital sales + streaming the album?

Yes, that's right. If I'm not mistaken, it's somewhere around 1500 track streams equals 1 album equivalent.

I have to say, when I listened to "You Can't Buy Love" the other day when the album was released, I didn't really like it, but now the song has grown on me. I just listened to the album all the way through for maybe a fifth time in the last 48 hours, and I found myself actually jamming to "You Can't Buy Love" when that song started playing. 😊

*MUSIC VIDEO ALERT*

If you are a digital cable subscriber or have the "Music Choice" channels.

On Spectrum it's channel 900 to play any new, current or old music videos.

They have Shania under the S's and you can play BOTH music videos from NOW!!!!! The more times we request these videos they add more videos of that artist. So heads up!!

She's slaying amazon (pre-)sales for weeks already. I still think they underestimate with 130.000. I guess 145.000 for the first week. Her appearance on James Corden's late late will give the album another push.

Shania was credited for electric guitar and keyboard playing on NOW. Can anyone clarify which song(s) she was credited for?

There is nothing on the booklet credits. Only handclaps on "You Can't Buy Love".

Shania Twain fears death for sake of son

Brant News | October 2, 2017

Shania Twain is terrified she will die young leaving her teenage son without a mother.

When the 52-year-old iconic country music singer was just 22, both her mother Sharon and stepfather Jerry Twain tragically died in a car crash and their deaths had a lasting effect on Shania who now worries her life will end early meaning she won't be around to support 16-year-old Eja Lange - her child with ex-husband Robert 'Mutt' Lange.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph newspaper, she said: "I hope I'm there long enough for him that he doesn't feel the loneliness that I did. I know what it is to go through life with nothing to stand on, no one to fall back on."

After her parents died, it was up to the 'You're Still The One' hitmaker to support and raise her younger siblings, Jill, Carrie Ann and Mark, but she never felt sorry for herself as she knew she had to step up and care for them.

She said: "I had no other family, no aunts, uncles or anybody at all that ever helped me. Once my parents were gone, that was it. And that was the beginning of my adulthood. But I didn't have time to feel sorry for myself. I just kept going, and the divorce is when it hit me. But as bad as it was, it was just a failed marriage. It wasn't the end of my life. You have to move on. What I've learned mostly is that if you're feeling s**t or depressed, don't apologize for it. Because the 'just get over it' thing is insulting. You've got go to through this at your own speed. Time does heal. Life carries on. I believe in change."

Shania has just dropped her first album in 15 years which documents her personal struggles, and she firmly believes that "sharing" her experiences had helped her in many ways.

She said: "There were so many things I was ashamed of, couldn't bear anybody knowing. In fact, sharing makes it better. I wish I'd known that years ago. I've gone through all the petrifying obstacles. It wasn't easy. I was very scared. But I'm fearless at this point."

*MUSIC VIDEO ALERT*

If you are a digital cable subscriber or have the "Music Choice" channels.

On Spectrum it's channel 900 to play any new, current or old music videos.

They have Shania under the S's and you can play BOTH music videos from NOW!!!!! The more times we request these videos they add more videos of that artist. So heads up!!




Hi,

Just saw the video to Swingin' and I don't get all the couples concept. Why not if you are going to have couples dancing in a video about Swingin' why not have them on trapezes swinging as they dance.  Check out Paula Abdul's video for Blowing Kisses in the Wind https://youtu.be/Z3cQ0by7yTI.  Would make sense to have dancers like this doing acrobatic dancing with the Swingin' video. 

I mean the video is great but the concept doesn't match too well with the song in my opinion. 

Also I do agree with all the reviews of the album that say they don't know where it land.  I know genres and labels are things that artists hate especially Shania but I see this album as next level revolutionary and I don't think many are ready for it.  I hope I am wrong but I think people are stuck on the idea of what her and Mutt did.  Hard for people to understand this new NOW for Shania is not old Mutt and Shania.  Label is there for her and I think people want to label the new album and won't know how.

Just my thoughts on this video,

Warmest regards as always,

Tonto

Two things... Roll Me On The River needs to be part of the rumoured upcoming Hocus Pocus 2 soundtrack and Where Do You Think You're Going and Because Of You gives me Celine Dion vibes and I'm here for it!

 I agree!!! Especially about the part where you said "Where Do You Think You're Going" and "Because Of You" gives you Celine Dion vibes. Even when the tracklisting was first announced and I read one of the tracks on NOW was called Because Of You, 2 songs came to mind, one was obviously the song "Because You Loved Me" by Celine Dion, and the other was a song recorded and released by Kelly Clarkson around 2005ish of the same name. I don't know why, but I was scared for a bit leading up to the release date of NOW that Because Of You was just going to be a Kelly Clarkson cover, lol.

Now let me explain, even though Shania has said quite a few times in interviews these past few months that she wrote every song on NOW, the title Because Of You just stood out for me, it's almost as if that title didn't belong on a Shania Twain album, at least for me. But trust me, it's not that crazy of an idea that Shania or any country artist would cover Kelly Clarkson's Because Of You, cause Reba had done it 10 years ago, as a duet with Kelly. Thank God, it is not a Kelly Clarkson cover though, or a song about a similar topic, as Kelly's song was pretty much about domestic abuse, and Shania has already had her song about that topic already, Black Eyes, Blue Tears from the Come On Over album 20 years ago. 

Anyways, I'm here for it too, cause Celine has powerful vocals, and I love it when Shania shows off her vocal chops, just like Celine always does.

And I must say, yeah Roll Me On The River does sound like a song that should be part of the rumored upcoming Hocus Pocus 2 soundtrack, or for any Halloween movie soundtrack for that matter, rather horror or comedy.

For me, "Where Do You Think Your Going" should be part of a James Bond movie. Its just have that vibe and one of my top favorites in the album. Shania's vocal power is just supreme.

Is it just me or does Who's Gonna Be Your Girl sound like it would fit perfectly on The Woman In Me? It's like Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under meets Home Ain't Where His Heart Is (Anymore). At least that's the vibes I'm getting from it.

 Mmm, I'd say it would fit more on "Up!"... the song theme would fit on TWIM but the music reminds me a little the ballads on "Up!" 

Anyway, I'm love with "Roll Me On The River", I especially love the part "Sober as rain/feeling no pain/I'm falling from somewhere high/Deep in your eyes/I'm all in

I’m in love with the album there are so many gems in it!
My top 5:
1-I’m alright
2-Because of you
3-Soldier
4-Where do you think are going
5-Whose gonna be your girl.

its so difficult to choose only five because I love LATGG,SWMEC, Home now. I enjoy listening to Roll me on the river, more fun, poor me and let’s kiss and make up. For me the worst are light of my life and All in all but i really like these songs.
so in general it’s a great album!

 Mmm, you know what? I actually think I agree with you the more I think about it. At least music wise, this does sound a little bit like "Forever and For Always" and "I Ain't Goin' Down", but still being a completely different song nonetheless. 

But I do have a question for anyone here that has had the chance to listen to the album quite a few times already, and has looked through the lyrics and everything, but what is your honest opinion on Shania's songwriting on this album? The reason behind my question, is cause I was reading some comments/tweets on Twitter about the album, despite seeing several positive tweets about the album, a few negative ones would catch my eye, when some people would say things like the songs on NOW lyrically sound like they were written by 6th Grade Students, and I'm just wondering if any of you think the same, or do you think Shania's songwriting is pretty clever or not? For me personally, I love the lyrics to several songs on NOW, and think Shania's songwriting is genius, more so on certain songs more than others, but genius nonetheless.

Looks like Shania's team decided to not release SWMEC to country radio. Wonder what song she'll sing at the CMA awards if she performs?
