Shania Twain’s New Album ‘Queen of Me’ is Out Now
Grammy Award-winning legend and the best-selling female artist in country music history Shania Twain has released her eagerly awaited new album, Queen of Me (listen below).
Building anticipation for the Shania-ssance, the legendary country singer heralded the record with a series of fan-favorite bops, which included “Waking Up Dreaming,” “Last Day of Summer,” and “Giddy Up!” All the tracks received widespread acclaim from Rolling Stone, Billboard, Entertainment Tonight, Variety, People, Consequence, NME, Music Week, and more.
Queen of Me has the regular makings of another Shania classic, being confident and catchy. The album is compelling from beginning to end and powered by the kind of anthems that transformed her into a multi-generational icon. The record is a limitless expression of pop that allows it to sit comfortably next to Twain’s many chart successors, enshrining it as the most upbeat, playful, and joyous of all her albums.
The LP is sonically inspired by ’70s and ’80s funk and rock—just like the sounds she grew up with and considered her heroes. It’s a departure from the past and a strident step into an ever-improving future.
Queen of Me consists of 12 new tracks. In the stand-out friendship anthem “BEST Friend,” Twain affectionately gushes over her closest confidant as she emphasizes “you always take the blame and you know I’d do the same for you. No matter what, yeah I got you, and I know that you got me.”
The album represents a deep and dynamic creative statement from this iconic voice – from the energetic opener “Giddy Up!” through the empowered title track “Queen of Me,” and the passionate finale “The Hardest Stone” – which was produced by Tyler Joseph (Twenty One Pilots).
To celebrate this next era in style, Twain is also set to embark on a global Queen of Me Tour. The tour marks the first time fans around the world will get to see the Queen in all of her glory in nearly five years, following a highly successful Vegas residency run. Guests joining her for select dates throughout the tour are Kelsea Ballerini, Lindsay Ell, Hailey Whitters, Breland, Robyn Ottolini, Priscilla Block, Mickey Guyton, Lily Rose, Talk, and Tenille Townes.
The Queen of Me Tour kicks off on Friday, April 28 at Spokane Arena in Spokane, WA and makes stops across North America and Europe in Vancouver, Denver, Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, London, Dublin, and more before wrapping up on November 14th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC.
