It has been nearly 12 years since Shania Twain released her last album, 2002’s Up, but in a recent interview with the Las Vegas Sun, the country singer opened up on how her two-year Las Vegas residency helped her muster up the courage to release new music.
“The success here in Las Vegas has given me a confidence that I have not had in years, even in past tours,” she told the newspaper. “I really have been able to build up a lot more courage and a lot more confidence in myself. Yeah, I’m ready for more things now.”
In the interview, Twain revealed that she’s in the middle of putting the album together.
“That’s a whole new world there for me because that took a lot of courage, too,” she said. “Just to really dive in there and expose my songwriting for the first time after a long time to my peers and have to sit there and get the feedback and be brave enough to do that.”
