Shania Twain’s New Single Debuts in 2018 Winter Olympics Ad [Watch]
Fans everywhere can hear a portion of Shania Twain's new single "Life's About to Get Good." The song premiered inside a 60-second long commercial for the 2018 Winter Olympics.
The commercial aired during the Kentucky Derby on Saturday (May 6). A produced version of "Life's About to Get Good" plays while images of famous American Olympians flash on screen. Shaun White and Lindsey Vonn are two of the most recognizable faces. Twain does not appear in the advertisement.
The song is the long-awaited return to country radio for Twain. She's promised to release it officially in June, but she played the song at Stagecoach in California in April. The accompanying album is scheduled to be released in the fall, according to the singer. It will mark her first studio album in more than 15 years.
Everything We Know About Shania's New Song and Album
Of the new single Twain says it was inspired by self-pity that turned into empowerment. “Life’s about joy, life’s about pain, life’s about this, life’s about that,” she told the Los Angeles Times. “Then all of a sudden: ‘Life’s about to get good.’ And I thought, ‘What a great play on words! How fun is that?”
She wrote all the songs on her new album, and has teased titles and lyrics that dive deep into the many ups and downs she's overcome since the last time she released new music. Her last true radio hit was "Party for Two" in 2004.
