Shania Twain, who was born on Aug. 28, 1965, as Eilleen Regina Edwards, is celebrating her birthday and talking about her new album. "There are probably less upbeat songs. I would say it's more half and half compared to what I've done in the past, where I would've learned more towards mostly uptempo songs,” said Shania Twain according to an Aug. 28, 2013, E!Online report.
Shania Twain’s long-awaited new album since her 2002 album “Up!” can be expected to be a reflection of a star that not only puts a lot of pressure on herself but also pressure on what she represents in her music.
"I do want it to be perfect, and I want it to be something that I really enjoy and a product of my inspiration…it's been a long time."
Shania Twain also said about her new album that “I'm different, I've evolved, and I want that to be reflected in the music. At the same time I don't want to abandon the root of what I am."
Shania Twain’s early roots go back to growing up in Canada, experiencing a hard childhood, initially finding a sense of fulfillment in music by singing at bars at the age of eight, and then rising to the status of a successful Canadian country pop singer-songwriter that gained international fame.
From her longtime home in Switzerland, Shania Twain spoke in an interview with Rolling Stone about her new album. “I'm pretty much there with my songs, and I'm really just sitting on the fence in regards to a producer. So I'm listening to a lot of records, doing my homework there, and trying to determine who is the right match.”
Last December, Shania Twain launched her Caesars Palace residency with a series of sold-out dates. After spending the summer in Switzerland and writing music for her new album, Shania Twain is ready to return to Las Vegas.
According to her Facebook page, Shania is returning to Vegas for another series of dates that will kick off on Oct. 15 and run through mid-December.
When asked whether she will include some of her new music in Las Vegas, Shania Twain smiled.
“You know, you have people that go to shows, probably go to several shows a year. They know what they like and they know what to expect and you’ve got to deliver that and more. You have to surprise them.”
