It's "Giddy Up!" time for Twain

Friday, January 6, 2023 – Shania Twain is out with a new single, "Giddy Up!" today.

The song will be found on Twain's forthcoming "Queen of Me" CD, arriving on Feb. 3. The disc is Twain's sixth and first since 2017. This also will be her debut for her new label partner Republic Nashville, a division of Republic Records.

Twain said, "The saying "Let's Go Girls!" is such a wonderfully uplifting sentiment now, but it's just something I said during the recording in the studio, and I guess that's the same for 'Giddy Up!.' These lines come to me when I'm thinking about how to put a little "pep in my step." I want people to feel good when they hear the new album. I want to set a celebratory tone and 'Giddy up!' is a way to call to the audience and say 'let's get ready for some fun'."

"Queen of Me "consists of 12 new tracks. Twain previously released the single "Waking Up Dreaming"

The track listing is:
1 Giddy Up!
2 Brand New
3 Waking Up Dreaming
4 BEST Friend
5 Pretty Liar
6 Inhale/Exhale AIR
7 Last Day of Summer
8 Queen of Me
9 Got It Good
10 Number One
11 Not Just A Girl
12 The Hardest Stone

Twain will be a headliner for Rock the Ocean's Tortuga Festival, alongside Eric Church and Kenny Chesney on April 14-16, in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

Twain embarks on the Queen of Me Tour later this year. Kelsea Ballerini, Lindsay Ell, Hailey Whitters, Breland, Robyn Ottolini, Priscilla Block and Mickey Guyton, Lily Rose, Talk, and Tinelle Townes will be joining Twain on select dates throughout the tour. The tour kicks off Sept. 28 at Spokane Arena in Spokane, Wash.

CD reviews for Shania Twain

When listening to Shania Twain's first album in five years, the listener is faced with making the big decision - blue or green disc. Green supposedly contains 19 country songs. With red, you get the pop version of those same exact songs recorded (international fans get a blue album with Asian sounds). 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, ...
