  • SHANIA TWAIN’S ‘NOW’ ALBUM DEBUTS AT NO. 1 ON BILLBOARD.

    Shania Twain’s new album, NOW, bows at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart this week. The superstar’s first studio album in 15 years sold 137,000 in sales and equivalent streams during its first week. According to Billboard, 134,000 were in traditional album sales, which is the third largest sales week for a country album this year and the largest for a woman in nearly two years (Carrie Underwood’s Storyteller album debuted in November 2015 with 164,000 in sales and streams).

     

    The album, which features “Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed” and “Life’s About to Get Good,” along with “Soldier” and many more, includes many varied styles and moods, according to Shania.

    “Stylistically, the album is very diverse. I really took the freedom to just approach with an anything goes attitude. I really didn’t want to box myself in to any specific style or mood, and just let my creativity flow, and that resulted in a lot of just all of my favorite musical ideas in one,” she says. “So, I really had fun with it and explored things I’d never done before stylistically or things I always wanted to explore. I knew that I wanted the album to sound, you know, to not lose authenticity in the mix of everything. Once we got into production, I really wanted to make sure and my direction was I want to use authentic string instruments, acoustic instruments and use musicians with a lot of soul and a lot of really great live experience playing.”

    NOW has also debuted at the top of the U-K chart, beating out Wolf Alice’s Visions of a Life by fewer than 800 copies, as well as topping the album chart in Australia and Canada, where it has already been certified platinum.

    Shania will launch her NOW Tour May 3rd in Tacoma, Washington.

    Audio / Shania Twain says the songs on her NOW album are pretty diverse.
