Shania Twain plans on '08 release for new CD

Wednesday, May 16, 2007 – Shania Twain said she will have an album out in 2008 and is currently writing songs.

In an interview with GAC in Las Vegas at the Academy of Country Music awards in Las Vegas, Twain said, "Right now I'm in a very serious songwriting mode, so I'm focusing a lot on that, doing a lot of soul searching. That's consuming a lot of my time right now."

When asked when a CD would be out, Twain said, "It will be awhile still. It won't be until next year. It won't be this year."

Since it's been about five years since her last release, Twain asked if she missed it. "The grass is always greener on the other side. When I'm full on with the touring, I miss the songwriting because I don't really get to do a lot of that when I'm on tour. You never win. I have to say, I'm enjoying the songwriting part of it. There's a lot of reflection involved when I'm putting songs together...but I do look forward to going back out."

"We haven't even decided where we're to go record it yet...We're putting some demos together. I'm working really hard on the lyrics. I want to be as true to myself as possible, well completely true to myself with the lyrics. It takes a lot of thought."

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, ...
