Shania Twain Announces First Album in 15 Years: Listen to the First Single

She’s still the one! Shania Twain dropped a new single, “Life’s About to Get Good,” on Thursday, June 15, giving fans a taste of what’s to come on her long-anticipated new album.

During a Friday, June 16, appearance on the Today show, Twain, 51, joked that the upbeat single about going from “dark to light, sad to happy, lost to found” is “annoyingly catchy.” She explained that the song “is a very melancholy story, but we’re talking about making it through to the end.”

Releasing a new album for the first time in 15 years has been an emotional experience for the singer. “I’m really feeling the love!” Twain told Today hosts Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb and Carson Daly. “I didn’t realize how appreciated I was.” The Grammy winner joked: “Distance makes the heart grow fonder, I guess!”
