Fans of Shania Twain will be thrilled to learn that the former American Idol guest judge and mentor is busy preparing for the release of a brand new album! The country crooner says she already has several tracks lined up…and more on the way!
Shania Twain is anxious to put together a new record. But first, she’s on the hunt for a new producer! The singer recently told Rolling Stone, “I’m pretty much there with my songs, I’m really just sitting on the fence in regards to a producer. So I’m listening to a lot of records, doing my homework there, and trying to determine who is the right match.”
Until a producer has been named, it’ll be hard to know exactly what to expect from Shania Twain’s new album. But don’t get too comfortable with that old Up! CD. Based on her latest music interests, Shania just might be ready to change up her vocal style. She says she’s been listening to a ton of Lana Del Rey as of late, as she’s ”kind of stuck on the sound of that record.” Other influences include Alison Krauss and Robert Plant.
With such a wide range of inspirations, Shania acknowledges that narrowing down the focus might be a difficult. She admits that it’s obvious “how lost I am as far as production direction, because I’m listening to such a broad spectrum.” That being said, she says fans can expect a darker sound on the new album. “There are probably less upbeat songs. I would say it’s more half and half compared to what I’ve done in the past, where I would’ve learned more towards mostly uptempo songs.”
