Five-time GRAMMY® Award-winning legend and the best-selling female artist in country music history Shania Twain uncovers the tracklisting for her anxiously awaited new album, Queen of Me, arriving on February 3, 2023. Check it out below! She also shared a limited-edition exclusive merch drop—available HERE.
It notably stands out as her sixth original full-length offering, first record since 2017, and her official debut for her new label partner Republic Nashville, a division of Republic Records.
Queen of Me consists of 12 new tracks. From the energetic opener “Giddy Up” through the empowered title track “Queen of Me” and passionate finale “The Hardest Stone,” the LP represents a deep and dynamic creative statement from this iconic voice. She set the stage for everything with the single “Waking Up Dreaming” which Rolling Stone called “a shot of caffeinated bliss” and The Today Show called “an absolute bop.”
On November 14th at 3pm PT/6pm ET, Shania will join celebrated TV personality Nancy O’Dell for TalkShopLive where fans can hear stories around the making of Queen of Me and pre-order the autographed LP and limited edition box sets. Link HERE.

MORE ABOUT SHANIA TWAIN
Last month, she made a grand return with her latest single “Waking Up Dreaming.” Right out of the gate, Vulture hailed it as “a motivational, synth-laden pop-rocker with few of the country touches you’d expect from Twain, all of the glamour.” Rolling Stone raved, “It gradually builds to a Shania-worthy maximalist sound, a dance party of gleaming guitars and unfettered bliss.” People affirmed, “Shania Twain is baring it all with her new era of music,” and The Tennessean proclaimed, “Country icon Shania Twain’s season in the sun continues with the release of ‘Waking Up Dreaming’.” Perhaps The TODAY Show summed it up best as “an absolute bop.”
“Waking Up Dreaming” marked her first release in five years since 2017’s critically acclaimed, Now, which bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Top Country Albums Chart upon arrival. It also arrives on the heels of her blockbuster career-spanning documentary Not Just A Girl—streaming on Netflix now. It was notably produced by Mercury Studios and directed by Joss Crowley. To accompany the film, she also presented the compilation album Not Just A Girl (The Highlights) available HERE.
