Twain enjoys "Waking Up Dreaming"

Friday, September 23, 2022 – Shania Twain released her first new music in five years today with the single "Waking Up Dreaming."

"As with all my music, take it and make it your own ," Twain said.

The song, which clocks in at 3:18, has been part of an album project that Twain has been working on for several years. The vibe is on the pop side. Twain also released a video for the single, which was directed by Isaac Rentz.

The single serves as her first release with her new label partner Republic Nashville, a division of Republic Records.

Twain 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."

Republic Records co-founder and CEO Monte Lipman said "Shania is one of the most influential and impactful artists of this generation. She's a rare talent whose legacy continues to resonate throughout the world. We feel a tremendous amount of gratitude to support her new body of work, which is spectacular."

"Waking Up Dreaming" marks Twain's first release in five years since 2017's "No.w."

The song arrives on the heels of her career-spanning documentary "Not Just A Girl," streaming on NETFLIX produced by Mercury Studios and directed by Joss Crowley. To accompany the film, she also presented the compilation album "Not Just A Girl (The Highlights)."

There was no definitive word on when a new album will be out although Twain has previously expected to release an album, which will be her sixth studio album.

Twain may be generous with the amount of material here, but the overall effect is one of too much music and not enough quality. Yes, there are some country touches and instrumentation, but if you ...
Like a good many country artists in the HNC phase of country, success seems to breed a situation where artists turn their backs on the very genre which spawned them. After the massive success of "The Woman In Me," Shania Twain has strayed very far from country in what is essentially a pop album. Few of the 16 songs are country: the first single, the catchy, uptempo "Love Gets Me Every Time" with its killer three fiddle attack, "You're Still The One," "Honey, I'm Home," (a lousy job blues song, ...
