Shania Twain has dished the deets on her forthcoming album, saying she’s planning to make the “best album she’s ever made” with the aim to release before Christmas.

Speaking on the latest episode of Home Now Radio on Apple Music Hits, Shania Twain opened up about the difficulties of working on the highly-anticipated record during Covid, saying: “It’s so difficult to say that an album is finished and ready.

“I’m not procrastinating, but I do admit that Covid has created some timing issues because it’s been very difficult to get together with producers and musicians in the same room.

“So I’ve been working very hard on it. I want to give you guys something that you can really be proud of as a Shania fan.

“I want you to celebrate with me and I’m definitely on a mission to make the best album I’ve ever made. So please be patient. I want it to be worth waiting for.

Shania continued: “This is an album of celebration and my plan is to release this album… Here it comes to commitment.

However, while she said she didn’t “plan on releasing this album before Christmas,” she added, “Wouldn’t it be super to have this out for Christmas? I would love that so much. So that is my goal.”

Shania also spoke of the major influence Journey – particularly Steve Perry – had on her music throughout her career.

“Journey is another group that I honed in on my vocal stamina skills with because Steve Perry sings his butt off and stays up at the top of his range song after song after song,” she said,

“And he did that live for years. He’s incredible. I’d love to sing with him someday. Steve Perry, if you’re out there, let’s sing together. That would be a real rock dream come true for me.”
