Views of Shania Twain on the Album
Twain had said that creating this album has been extremely personal for her. It was related to what she was feeling at that moment in the time of her youth.
Twain added that there is much more than the accolades for the album that resonates with her. For someone who grew up with music, it is really that what has connected over all these 25 years. It stands the test of time. She added that it has been an incredible journey to get to know all her fans, of all ages and all types from all over the world.
Twain reflected on how different generations of fans embraced the album and related to it. She said that so many women related to the album when it came out. Women in their late 20 and 30s were relating not just to her defiance but to her confidence in being an independent thinker and being bold and expressing that through music, video and fashion. She felt a connection with the female audience. The men were having fun, enjoying the aesthetics. The men were enjoying their own powerful women in their lives. They were supportive about it.
She further added that those people had children and they made their children listen to this music and now those children are at my concert almost the same age as their parents were when the album came out. She thinks that the music grew with the generations. Or maybe the generation grew with the music or maybe both the ways.
Shania Twain said that she was thrilled and felt liberated to be recording her own music at that time. Twain added that she clearly remembers the process of writing all these songs.
Shania Twain would be dropping the diamond edition of the album The Women in Me on 2nd October,2020.
