Shania Twain Is Working a New Album; Looking for a Producer

Shania Twain has spent much of the last year in Las Vegas after launching her Caesars Palace  Shania: Still The One residency last December with a series of sold-out dates. She will return to Vegas for another series of dates that kick off October 15 and run through mid-December. She tells Rolling Stone she’s also working on a new album, her first since 2002’s Up!

“I’m pretty much there with my songs, and I’m really just sitting on the fence in regards to a producer,” she said. “So I’m listening to a lot of records, doing my homework there, and trying to determine who is the right match.”

With more than 10 years passing since her last album, Shania is feeling some pressure for her new album to live up the hype. The pressure isn’t coming from the industry or even her fans, however. It’s coming from herself.

“I do want it to be perfect, and I want it to be something that I really enjoy and a product of my inspiration – not a product of necessarily anything I’ve done before or anyone I’ve been before in regards to making records, because it’s been a long time,” she said. “I’m different, I’ve evolved, and I want that to be reflected in the music. At the same time I don’t want to abandon the root of what I am.”

While Shania might be working on new music, she doesn’t plan to incorporate it into her show anytime soon. And with all the hard work that went into planning her Vegas production, she doesn’t want to change things up just yet.

“The show took well over a year to put together, so that was a production in itself, like making a record,” she said. “You had to write the whole story – literally wrote the show out like a script, worked through the production and had the technical side of it and eventually delivered it. So I’m only recently freed up from going into one production and just getting geared up to go into another one, which should be the record.”
