Shania Twain on new music: 'The fighter in me wrote that song'

Country sensation Shania Twain has revealed that she accessed some tough emotions while writing her new music

Talking to the Rolling Stone about a track entitled 'Swinging With My Eyes Closed', the singer-songwriter explained that it embodies the 'fighter' within her: "The fighter in me wrote that song. I was thinking of a boxer taking a swing, or a baby first coming out with his eyes and fists closed. They can't even see yet and they're swinging with their eyes closed."

She went onto add that the process of writing songs is as useful to her as therapy: "[Songwriting] is like therapy. It helped me come to terms with a lot of things emotionally. It's sort of like when you finish crying. When you're done, you're done and you move on."
