'Waking Up Dreaming' is out Friday!
Following her popular Netflix documentary, Not Just A Girl, Shania Twain releases her first new single in six years, Waking Up Dreaming, today. It's a big pop banger that we've come to expect from Shania with a more-than-passing familiarity to The Cure's iconic 'Close To Me' beat.
The single marks the start of Twain’s next chapter, according to social media.
“Every time I get to announce something like this, I get such a rush of adrenaline and nerves — it never gets old… I am super excited to share with you that my new song Waking Up Dreaming is coming out this Friday!!” Twain captioned. “I’ve spent the last couple years working away on new music… on my documentary… on the Vegas residency and it’s been such a creatively fulfilling time for me, I can’t wait for this next chapter and Waking Up Dreaming is just the start.”

She later posted a teaser clip of the new song on TikTok.
“No, we won’t stop at the ceiling / So let’s keep waking up dreaming,” she sings in the video laid over a compilation of concert footage from her early career.
Twain released her last album, Now, in 2017 – her first new release in 15 years. According to Elle, she is planning to release a new album in 2023, which she’s recording in a studio in London.
Earlier this year, Twain wrapped up her Las Vegas residency, Let’s Go! at Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino and also made a surprise appearance during Harry Styles’ Coachella headlining set to perform Man! I Feel Like a Woman! and You’re Still the One.
Known for hits like Man! I Feel Like A Woman, From This Moment On, That Don’t Impress Me Much and You’re Still The One, the Canadian musician has had an illustrious career in the music business having sold over 100 million records to date and gaining the label of “Queen of Country Pop”.
