Having been with Mercury Nashville since the start of her recording career in the early ’90s, Shania Twain has a new home name, Republic Nashville, and a new song and video to go along with the switch – “Waking Up Dreaming,” her first official single in five years. .
It’s not just her new label—it’s a new label for everyone, as Twain’s statement about the signing proved that she was the first female artist of the Nashville Republic, a section of Republic Records.
“I couldn’t think of a better partner than Republic Nashville,” Twain said. “I am honored and delighted to be the brand’s first female artist and to lead the charge of this new and exciting chapter. In that respect, it feels like a fresh start all around, and I wholeheartedly embrace it.”
Republic co-founder and CEO Monty Lipman said, “Shania is one of the most influential and influential artists of this generation. She is a rare talent whose legacy continues to resonate around the world. We are incredibly grateful to support her new body of work, and it is an amazing work.” .
Although the single’s cover photo and other photos released make Twain don a cowboy hat, “Waking Up Dreaming” embraces its pop side, not least through a music video directed by Isaac Rentz that borrows the old icons of glam-rock and metallic felt. The light-hearted clip puts Twain in a whimsical series of blonde, pink and red wigs, and even more exotic inch-long eyelashes, as she poses like a rocker from the early Motley Crue or Poison era.
Just two months ago, Twain released what turned out to be her swan song for Mercury Nashville, and the soundtrack for her latest Netflix documentary Not Just a Girl (The Highlights), a set that included a new track, the title song.
Her previous studio album was “Now,” which was released in 2017. It marked her comeback after a long recording drought that hadn’t seen her release a new studio effort since 2002’s “Up!” , although she remained active in this period as a touring artist and a Las Vegas residence guard. Twain’s top five albums have sold over 100 million units worldwide. Her most successful album, 1997’s “Come on Over”, is the rare album to earn double diamond certification by the RIAA, with 20 million copies sold in the United States alone.
Her second residency in Vegas, this one at the Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, is ongoing and scheduled to run until the end of 2022.
In other news for Twain, the country pop star was revealed on Thursday by diverse To be in Final Conversations to participate in a live TV remake of Beauty and the Beast as Mrs. Potts. Other cast members include HER as Belle and Josh Groban as Beast, in a broadcast that is scheduled to go live on ABC on December 15 and become available to stream on Disney+ the next day.
