These 2 new songs seem to be missing the punch and power of the old Mutt Lange tracks. I'm so used to a bit of attitude and hard percussion in her songs that I don't know how I'm feeling about these new ones :shrug:

Something to keep in mind is that there are NO co-writers on this album. Shania literally did all the songwriting herself. I'm gonna wait to listen to the album as a whole before I decide how I feel about it. Life's About To Get Good is still catchy, though!

LOVE "Swinging", I think it sounds better than LATGG. Like someone else said, I am missing that power in the production(s).
Oh well, I am not complaining. I'm really looking forward to the album. :love:

LATGG is ok but a little tame for Shania. Swinging with my eyes closed has more of a punch, I definitely prefer that one :music:

With every play LATGG grew on me more and more. The lyrics in the verses are really sad and you can hear the vulnerability in her voice... and then there's a defiant happy chorus. Love it! <3

Because I'm a geek, I worked this out: 'Now' is being released 14 years and 10 months after 'Up!', and I was aged 14 years and 9 months when 'Up!' came out. Therefore Up! will be a little older than I was when Up! was released, lol. :') It's crazy how long it's been; I'm so happy she's finally ready to give us new music. :love:

I am actually your opposite. I prefer LATGG than "Swinging".

Only listened to life's about to get good but what has happened to her voice? Is it shot because you can barely tell it is her it is so autotuned and hss some weird effects on it.

In 2004, Twain retired from performing and retreated to her home in Switzerland. In her 2011 autobiography, she cited a weakening singing voice as the reason for not performing publicly. When both her singing and speaking were affected, Twain consulted the Vanderbilt Dayani Center in Nashville. Specialists discovered lesions on her vocal cords and diagnosed her with dysphonia, which she attributes to Lyme Disease, all treatable with careful rehabilitation.


In 2011, Shania Twain revealed that she was struggling with dysphonia, a disorder that can cause a person’s vocal cords to seize up when speaking or singing. At the time, during a chat with Oprah Winfrey, the country star blamed the condition on a number of traumatic events in her life, but now, she says it was Lyme disease that caused her vocal issues.
In a new interview with the Los Angeles Times, Twain attributes her dysphonia to Lyme disease, and notes that dysphonia is different from another vocal trouble that singers often encounter, nodules on their vocal cords: “With nodules, you can’t speak; you’ve got to rest, rest, rest,” Twain tells the newspaper. “With mine, you’ve got to work, work, work.”
In 2015, Twain explained that she fights her dysphonia through careful planning and show pacing. She tells the LA Times that she follows a strict warmup regimen and performs voice-strengthening exercises.


With that condition & the fact she's now 51 (ageing can cause vocals to deepen), it's lead to her sounding somewhat different than how she sounded 15-20 years ago. With this song, I think there's some vocal layering going on to give a fuller sound, as well as some manipulation. It's a bit overproduced. So that's lead to her sounding different too. Nevertheless I like the song, particularly lyrically!

Her voice has depended. But you have to know that she went through a lot physically, mentally, and emotionally since she was last public. A lot of the stress and pain she carried when she was younger has worn her physically, AND.....she had lyme disease which went undiagnosed for awhile. All of that manifested into vocal problems. She said she actually has to warm up for hours nowadays otherwise her voice doesn't work.

I don't think anyone of us can imagine what she has/is going through with her voice.
I am SO proud of her, she probably gave up for a few years but back NOW with an album (coming September 29) completely of her own. Incredible.

Really inspirational. Forever and for always.
