The project is the global superstar’s most triumphant-feeling body of work. It’s an album about standing in your own power and worshipping yourself. Twain co-wrote each of the album’s tracks which follows 2017’s No. 1-selling Now.
“These days, I’m feeling very comfortable in my own skin – and I think this album reflects that musically. Life is short and I want to be uplifted, colorful, unapologetic and empowered. I want to carry a clear message, particularly as a woman, to always remember my power and I hope the songs are a reminder to you, of that same power inside you!” Twain writes on social media.
