Fans Upset After Shania Twain Doesn’t Announce New Music on ‘Late Late Show’
Shania Twain fans didn’t quite get what they were hoping for out of her appearance on the Late Late Show With James Corden on Tuesday night (April 18). After tweeting that she’d be talking to Corden about new music, Twain did not announce any news about her forthcoming single or album.
Twain has been teasing a new album for years, but recently her vague pronouncements have gotten more specific. In February she told Rolling Stone that she planned to release a new single in March, followed by an entire album in May. No single has yet materialized, and a rumored surprise appearance at the 2017 ACM Awards didn’t happen, either.
Disappointed fans turned to Twitter to vent about Twain not talking about new music, expressing their frustration with the long, drawn-out process of her album. But in an interview with the Press-Enterprise in San Bernadino, near Indio, Calif., where she will take the stage for the Stagecoach Festival on April 29, Twain revealed that the timetable for the album has been pushed back to fall.
Twain names “Life’s About to Get Good,” “Light of My Life” and “I’m Alright” as song titles from the upcoming project, and she intends to debut new music from the album for the crowd at the festival.
She also hints that she might not be done with touring, though she billed her 2015 Rock This Country Tour as her last.
“I really loved being on tour and had the best time and it kind of ended too soon,” Twain says, adding that she didn’t get to book international dates because she was touring around her son’s school schedule. “I think as he gets older I will pick up where I left off and carry on and do more at some point,” she says.
“I felt like at that time maybe that was all I had left in me … I really felt that way, but I was so energized by the tour and by the fans. For the first time in my career, I really felt like it was easier and the fans really gave me more than ever before for some reason.”
