Shania Twain is giving fans another glimpse at her highly anticipated upcoming album, NOW, with the release of her brand new track, “Poor Me”.
The new single, which was solely written by and co-produced by the 51-year-old five-time Grammy Award winner, offers a different sound from the reigning queen of country pop, bearing some similarities to The Chainsmokers’ 2016 hit, “Don’t Let Me Down”, as noted by Rolling Stone.
Speaking of becoming the sole songwriter of her new music, Twain says in a statement, “I’m a songwriter first. That absolutely drives everything. It was a big step toward independence. I pushed myself, knowing it was going to scare me and knowing that I, alone, was responsible for however it turned out.”
“Poor Me”, which was released as a new lyric video, explores the singer’s struggles as she comes to terms with the end of her marriage. The track is included in the 16-track deluxe and 12-track standard albums of NOW, out on September 29, which will also include Shania’s debut single, “Life’s About To Get Good”.
