Wonder why Mercury Nashville and Shania decided to part ways? Every album she’s practically released under them has performed well. I know NOW wasn’t anywhere near the success, but it still did hit number 1 in an era where people don’t buy albums anymore. Oh well, here’s to the next chapter!

 They actually didn’t. I just saw the new label is part of the UMG group

I’m loving this so much!! And thank you for posting the credits, I was just about to ask if anyone was aware of who produced it. It reminds me a bit of an updated Mutt production and I am here for it!

Shania Twain – Waking Up Dreaming Lyrics

Do you know I adore you
A million ways to show you I do
i do , I do
every moment holding
You is a moment stolen
Its true , Its true

Oh oh gotta be now or never
Oh oh
time ain’t waiting forever

So lets start waking up Dreaming
And dress up crazy like superstars
There ain’t no shaking the feeling
Tonight were making our way to mars

Way up higher then we
Ever been
No we wont stop at the ceiling
so lets keep waking up dreaming

now its the perfect timing
know that its worth us finding
The rush
The rush
what if there’s no tomorrow
l promise I won’t let go no
Matter what
Matter what

So lets start waking up Dreaming
And dress up crazy like superstars
There ain’t no shaking the feeling
Tonight were making our way to mars

Way up higher then we
Ever been
No we wont stop at the ceiling
so lets keep waking up dreaming

Cant live my best life without you baby
don’t think I could carry on
were stronger the longer we can make it
ohhhhh a oh a ohhhh

So lets start waking up Dreaming
And dress up crazy like superstars
There ain’t no shaking the feeling
Tonight were making our way to mars

Way up higher then we
Ever been
No we wont stop at the ceiling
so lets keep waking up dreaming

Way up higher then we
Ever been
No we wont stop at the ceiling
so lets keep waking up dreaming

RE: Shania's new single "Waking Up Dreaming" - September 23!


If this song isn't a hit I'd be shocked. It's upbeat and she sounds good. To release a a single and a brand new music video tonight at med night is the smartest thing Shania has done in years. I've hear other song clips that are also impressive over the last year on Tiktok. I still think late November or December makes sense to release the album. Maybe a CMA performance. She has finally let producers write with her. I think that's a smarter move and other song writers. Plus a new record label is probably good. Hopefully it's a universal record label. They can promote her well if she's the first to be signed up. Others say she's with Mercury Nashville still? All these all under the same level. Tommy personal opinion? Is this her best song since up?

Really insane.
It's her most uptempo song since Party For Two back in 2004.

 I would really be surprise if she would release it by the end of this year. If so, it would have to be early November but with the potential release of COO diamond edition, I highly doubt it. December is a terrible month to release music, the music business kinda goes silent when it comes to new releases in December and it doesn't really pick up until mid January. I would expect more of a February/March release.

Also, Shania isn't against writing with other song writers/artist, Now was a very personnel record to her, and she made the decision to be the sole writer of the album. She also stated before that, Now was a bit more experimental and that she would come back to her more popular sound.

it's a great song!!!!!! I'm sure it will be a hit on the streaming platforms.

I just don't know what radio stations will play it. I can't see Top 40 (rock/pop/rap) stations playing Shania.

Kate Bush had a resurgence lately with "Running Up That Hill" because of Stranger Things and Sia is doing well with "Unstoppable" which was released back in 2016 and went viral this year so some older woman in the business are doing well so I could see Shania do well too.

That’s why they released ‘Not just a girl: the highlights’ I guess. To finish that contract


Her new label is Republic Records which is part of Universal. Her old label, Mercury Nashville, is also part of Universal. So not sure of the arrangement she has with them.

----

Upon further investigation, it appears that she is part of a new label called Republic Nashville and she is the first artist they've signed. I think it is a sub label of Republic Records 

https://www.allaccess.com/country/artist-info/q/id/16635/shania-twain

It appears the Not Just A Girl: The Highlights album was to fulfill her contract with Mercury Nashville

I kinda see how it could fit on Up!, maybe updated version of Up!, if it were release today?... It's giving me Taylor Swift vibes, I think, maybe Holy Ground from the Red album. I wish her voice wouldn't be so processed. I feel like they're trying to make her sound as close as possible like she used to. I still love the song though and I can't wait for the music video!

Shania Twain Premieres New Song ‘Waking Up Dreaming’

By Paul Cashmere | Noise11 | September 23, 2022

The video was directed by Isaac Rentz who has previously made videos for Katy Perry, Machine Gun Kelly, 5 Seconds of Summer, Nick Jonas, Cage The Elephant, Paramore, Tegan and Sara, Eminem and Linkin Park.

Shania said, “I couldn’t think of a better partner than Republic Nashville. I’m honored and excited to be the label’s first artist and lead the charge of this new and exciting chapter. In this respect, it feels like a new beginning all around, and I’m embracing it wholeheartedly.”

‘Waking Up Dreaming’ is the first new music from Shania Twain since 2017. The song is first release with her new label partner Republic Nashville, a division of Republic Records.

To push the music streams a bit; every time you restart on a music platform and play it for at least 30 seconds counts as 1 stream 😉 or just put the song on repeat during work with either sound on or off 😜

In the beginning of the music video it shows a poster reading “GIDDY UP coming soon to Timmins Theatre”. Could Giddy Up possibly be the name of the album? 🤔

My only complaint about "Waking Up Dreaming" is that the beginning sounds like my least favorite song on 'Now', "You Can't Buy Love". Other than that though, I think the new song is fantastic.

Considering we already had 'Up!' as an album title, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that - Giddy Up - probably won't be the album title but it could be a song name or lyric.

Shania Twain Offers a Shot of Caffeinated Bliss in New Song ‘Waking Up Dreaming’

Upbeat single marks Twain's first release since 2017 and first with Republic Nashville

By Jon Freeman | Rolling Stone | September 23, 2022

Shania Twain wants to embrace the thrill of being in love in her new song “Waking Up Dreaming,” which was released on Friday. It’s the country-pop icon’s first new music since 2017 and first under a recording agreement with Republic Nashville.

“Do you know I adore you?/A million ways to show you, I do,” Twain sings at the top of “Waking Up Dreaming,” propelled by a hydraulic “Mickey”-style drum beat and subtle washes of synth. It gradually builds to a Shania-worthy maximalist sound, a dance party of gleaming guitars and unfettered bliss. “Let’s start waking up dreaming/And dress up crazy like superstars,” she sings, as if she didn’t perfect at least a dozen superstar looks already.

The video, directed by Isaac Rentz, goes all in on that idea. With its throwback aesthetic, the clip features Twain and some friends putting on a bright, neon-colored New Wave spectacle of hair-metal wigs and wild fashion that ends in a killer rock & roll show.

“Waking Up Dreaming” is the first solo release for Twain in five years, when she released the Number One album Now. In the meantime, she started her new Las Vegas residency at Zappos Theater in Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, which had its last run of scheduled dates in September. In July, the Netflix documentary Shania Twain: Not Just a Girl was released alongside an album featuring her best work.

I wonder why she's doing all these studio visits in the UK to promote the song but not actually perform it while there (well other than Starstruck as we've read).

RE: Shania's new single "Waking Up Dreaming" - September 23!


The song is catchy, She needs to promote the single and sing it. Especially in Canada and North America where she is doing well on itunes. Just my personal opinion she has better singles on that album we have heard them by clips. Keep the best for last I guess. The Queen song was so good. Maybe that's the delay with the album announcement and tour. Her new record label is planning it as we speak. The Music video is good and the songs are catchy. I don't think she's releasing a country album. Unfortunately it will be a pop album. It isn't necessarily bad but trying to figure what radio format might give her airplay? Adult Contemporary potentially but I can't see this being on country radio. It's extremely frustrating because half of the men on country are pop and RNB. I think she needs to promote the songs and announce an album soon. Personally I don't think this is her only music video and also I also think her second single will be a bigger hit when an album and tour gets promoted. Mecury Records and Shania will always respect each other. If she's signed a new record label she would have to committed to at least a few albums. Seems like she's parting ways with country radio and just giving her fans music. Regardless I love Waking up dreaming but as I said there's way better music on that album.  I so wanted that Tiktok song she played a long time ago to be released Unfortunately it wasn't. I'll say we will be expecting another brand new song in a month or two and another video. Waking up dreaming needs promotion and I think it will be next week or the week after in North America. This song isn't a flop its doing well but it won't if she doesn't get out and promote it. That video was shot last year. Sounds like either she left her record label because it was to pop or she wanted a fresh start. Based on her speaking we will probably get more albums. This new one might be out this year, She needs to go out and promote the song in North America. Especially Canada she's already number 3 on the top 100 without any promotion. Tommy what do you think? You seem to always make valid points so I always ask for your input. What you think her plan is? Give your honest opinion.

I thought it was strange too for her not to perform it either. Seems very odd. She sounded a bit sick when she was talking, but to me that shouldn’t be an excuse with the ability to lip sing. If she don’t get out there and promote the song, it won’t have longevity. Maybe she needs to do a radio tour and go to some big radio stations across the US, Canada, etc. Do some late night shows, morning shows, ahead of an album release. They all seem to be asking the same questions they asked her 5 years ago after a 15 year hiatus. Not to say those events don’t matter, but I think Shania is ready to move on.

I don't know how it is in other countries, but performing on TV shows (at least in the US) these days doesn't have the same promotional effect that it used to. Not as many people watch daytime/late night talk shows and most promotion seems to be done online through various avenues. We'll see though. I think she probably has a lot planned that we don't know about.

I'm not sure if she'll do any promo for the single in the U.S. or Canada. She might wait until closer to the album release. I don't know. I've always thought a good song will promote itself. And "Waking Up Dreaming" isn't a good song. It's a GREAT song. So it'll do fine on the streaming charts and most likely Billboard 200.

Even though performances on talk shows aren't as big as they used to be - they still are nice to watch and Shania has done them for every era thus far so I don't imagine she would stop now.

I can't stop listening to the song.
I love the "I do", "It's true" and"The rush" parts. And the Gotta be now or never oh oh oh oh Time ain't waiting forever.
Great vibes, really.
And the album could be closer than we think. I'm not 100% surecwe're gonna have to wait 2023 to have it.

In my opinion there are two different options

1- interviews, Tik Tok , etc , forget live performances, Shania’s voice it’s actually for studio sessions only with a lot of production help to sound good ( we all know it , her concerts are 90% prerecorded) , she has 2 new songs in just 3 months , maybe a new one before November and as she used to do an album release ending November for Xmas sales and achieve good numbers. Pushing back the album to February - March will loose a lot of sales , she’s not as big as 15 years ago.

2- promo with interviews and some “playback” tv performances and continue releasing some songs 2-3 before an album release , actually singers use to release 3-5 singles before having an album release

As I said, a good song will promote itself.
