Deluxe album includes five new tracks
Shania Twain presents Queen of Me (Royal Edition), the deluxe edition of her third UK No. 1 album, via Republic Nashville. The global superstar delivers the definitive edition of Queen Of Me with five extra tracks. Among the additional material, she serves up two new originals – “Bone Dry” and “Wanted Man.”
“I wrote ‘Bone Dry’ alone on the acoustic guitar and the song is about having everything in the world but still feeling empty,” Twain shares. “I guess it’s about whatever you want it to be about as the listener but there is some reading between the lines with this song! I remember waking up thinking I’ve got everything I could want in the world; I should wake up super happy and feeling grateful and enthusiastic about the day. But the good life I have now compared to my underprivileged youth can sometimes leave me feeling impatient and impossible to satisfy. ‘Bone Dry’ is my reflection on how money, beauty, fame, power, elements that really don’t bring genuine fulfillment. It’s the simple things in life that do for me personally. Like the joy of parenting, being in love, smelling roses, the company of animals, dreaming, creative freedom, nature. When I stay connected to these things, I’m truly happy and whole.”
Twain also invited hip hop country trailblazer Breland to accompany her on a dynamic reimagining of “Inhale/Exhale Air.”
“I am a huge Shania Twain fan and have always dreamt of singing on a song with her,” Breland shares. “The first Super Bowl I can remember watching was the one that she played halftime, and once I got into country music as an artist, she was my number one dream collab. What she represents for country music and beyond is so important, and she’s opened up doors for artists like me. It was a no-brainer for me to be on this song and I’m looking forward to playing some shows with her this summer.”
She completed the collection with a striking and spirited acoustic rendition of “Queen of Me” and the buzzing “Giddy Up!” (Malibu Babie Remix).
“Giddy Up!” has spent five weeks in the Top 10 at AC radio, making it Twain’s biggest radio placement since 2005’s Greatest Hits album. Once again, she’s at the top of the charts alongside some of the biggest names in the world, including Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Elton John and Britney Spears!
Next up, the Queen of Me Tour kicks off on Friday, April 28th at Spokane Arena in Spokane, WA and makes stops across North America and Europe in Vancouver, Denver, Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, London, Dublin and more before wrapping up on November 14th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC.
Twain also recently attended the CMT Music Awards at the Moody Center in Austin, Texas, where she accepted the Equal Play Award, which recognizes artists who are vocal advocates for elevating diverse and underrepresented voices in country music.
