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.
