Shania Twain Releases New Song 'Life's About To Get Good'

Life's about to get really good for Shania Twain.

On Thursday, June 15, 2017, the singer released her first single in many years, "Life's About to Get Good."

"This song is a light at the end of the tunnel story; seeing the optimism," Twain told iHeartRadio in an exclusive interview. "When I first started writing the song, the verses are very melancholy. And on the first lyric, it said, 'I wasn't just broken, I was shattered.' And I was in this spirit of 'boo hoo,' but I was writing it on the beach. So, every time I would pick my head up from my guitar, or my laptop writing the lyrics, I would see this gorgeous water, and sand, and sun, and palm trees, and I thought, wow, life is really great, and I think I'm going to pull this song out of its miserable state, and give it the light at the end of the tunnel. And that was where the chorus came in, you know, 'Life's About To Get Good.'"

The song is the lead single off her first CD in—wait for it—15 years, Now. As for why she chose the song to be her kick-off single, she said, "First of all, it's very energizing, and I really felt that I needed to feel that positive energy, first coming back out again after so long. It just puts me in a good mood, and lifts me up, and also reflects on my true state of mind over these last few years that have been challenging. So, the song is about truth, pain, optimism, joy in pain, and it says everything I want to say after being gone so long."

The Canadian-born Twain dominated the pop-country charts at the turn of the millennium. Her 1997 release, Come On Over, sold 20 million albums. Her follow-up album, Up!, sold an additional 11 million after its release in 2002.

Now is currently available for pre-order and will be released on September 29, 2017.
