Shania Twain posed with just a hat, a fringed skirt, and boots on in a promo for her new song “Waking Up Dreaming.”  

Shania told The Sun, “I styled that photograph myself. It was all about taking off the bra, taking off the shirt, and tying the shirt around my waist.”

She added, “This is a statement of being comfortable in my own skin and just being really myself.”

Twain said of the new album she is working on, her first since 2017, “This album is very chirpy, and I’m very frank with my lyrics on it, so it’s not a fluffy, lyrical album. It’s a happy album. I’m really excited about cheering people up.”

She continued, “I had a very productive songwriting pandemic period, and as much as we were isolated, it was almost like I wanted to cheer myself up, and that just came out in the music. It’s so danceable.”

When asked about the prospect of a biopic and a musical featuring megahits such as “That Don’t Impress Me Much” and “Man! I Feel Like A Woman!,” she offered, “Yes. Both of those things are possible in the future. All sorts of things are in the pipeline. I’m writing songs all the time, and the Netflix documentary [Not Just A Girl, released in July] has been a huge talking point in my life and career. There’s all sorts of things coming up but things I probably can’t talk about right now. But I’ve got a very busy few years ahead of me.”

She tweeted last weekend about her new song and video,”‘Waking Up Dreaming’ is out now!! As with all my music, take it and make it your own.”

Several fans reacted to the post, with one fan writing, “Always beyond expectation !#ShaniaTwain #WakingUpDreaming.” Another fan commented, “Wow…I’m flashed. That’s so great. I love the song and the video. Great job.”
