Shania Twain is helping kids with the September 29th launch of her brand new album, Now. The singer is offering exclusive album packages to benefit Shania Kids Can, an organization the country superstar founded in 2010. Package options range from the new deluxe album, Shania Kids Can merchandise and autographed memorabilia to tickets to an intimate pre-release listening party, one-of-a-kind performance outfits worn by Twain, the custom motorcycle used in the singer’s Still the One Live from Las Vegas stage show, dinner in Nashville with Twain and much more.
Shania Twain promised herself that if she were ever in a position to give back, she would find a way to help children reach their full potential. After overcoming the hardships, loss and extreme poverty of her youth, Twain is now one of the most iconic country stars in the world and is helping to provide the best possible opportunities for youth today facing similar challenges through the Shania Kids Can Foundation. Established in 2010, the organization was created to help underprivileged children with academic, nutritional, therapeutic and extra-curricular support providing a safe, secure environment where a child can thrive and reach their personal best.
Offered as both a 16-track deluxe and a 12-track standard album, the singer unveiled the track listing earlier this week via social media. Both configurations feature Twain’s current single, “Life’s About To Get Good,” playing on country radio now. All songs on the project were written solely by the Canadian songstress, who also served as co-producer on the project. Twain worked with four producers across the 16 tracks including Matthew Koma, Ron Aniello (Bruce Springsteen, Gavin DeGraw), Jake Gosling (Ed Sheeran, Shawn Mendes) and Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Norah Jones).
Now is Twain’s first album since 2002’s UP! She is a five-time GRAMMY Award-winner and the reigning Queen of Country Pop. With more than 75 million albums sold worldwide and U.S. sales topping 34.5 million, Twain remains the top-selling female country artist of all time. Twain’s albums include her Platinum-selling 1993 debut, Shania Twain; the GRAMMY Award-winning, Double Diamond-selling 1995 release, The Woman in Me; Come On Over, the best-selling studio album in Soundscan history by a female artist in any genre and the best-selling country album of all time with over 40 million units sold worldwide; and UP!, Twain’s third consecutive Diamond-selling album release.
