In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, five-time Grammy winner Shania Twain has released a new album with the intention of spreading happiness and hope. The album, titled "Queen of Me," features two music videos for the upbeat country song "Giddy Up" and the uplifting "Waking Up Dreaming."
A New Chapter in Twain's Career
Twain, a Canadian country-pop star, recently signed with a new label, and her new album marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter in her career. “I’m honored and excited to be the label’s first artist and lead the charge of this new and exciting chapter,” she said.
“In this respect, it feels like a new beginning all around, and I’m embracing it wholeheartedly”.
Twain's journey to releasing this album was not without its challenges. As an asthmatic, she contracted COVID-19 and her condition worsened, developing into pneumonia.
“Every day my lungs were filling with inflammation. Within 12 days, I was pretty much dying," she stated in an interview with Apple Music 1.
A Passion for Music
Despite her struggles, music remains a source of solace for Twain.
“When I get into songwriting mode, I’m just dreaming. I’m playing with my imagination, I’m letting it go, I’m in dream mode,” she said. “It is my dreams that determine my goals”.
Music is not only a form of entertainment for Twain but also a form of therapy. “Music is psychological treatment for me," she said. "Maybe that sounds too clinical, but there is something in music that resonates beyond everything else, beyond any stimuli”.
Twain's musical journey began at the young age of three, and by the time she was eight, she was playing in bars to earn money for her family. Her passion for music has sustained her throughout her life and career, and she hopes to share that passion with the world through "Queen of Me."
A Statement on the Red Carpet
At this year's Grammy Awards, Twain made a statement with her bold and unique outfit.
She arrived on the red carpet in a black and white suit designed by Harris Reed, paired with a bright red wig, drawing attention to her and her music. In conclusion, with "Queen of Me," Shania Twain aims to bring joy and hope to the world during a time of uncertainty and turmoil.
