Shania Debuts First Single in Six Years

The Oprah Winfrey Network will host the world premiere superstar Shania Twain’s first new music in six years a song titled, “Today Is Your Day.” The event takes place during the final episode of “Why Not? with Shania Twain” airing Sunday, June 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

As is fast becoming the custom, labels are treating single releases like an album launch. As a result, the song will be available on iTunes [exclusively] immediately following the Sunday premiere. Mercury Nashville will service the song to country radio stations after the show’s airing.

“Today Is Your Day” is the first song Twain has written solo in six years, and the creation process for the single was documented throughout the docu-series Why Not? with Shania Twain currently airing Sundays on OWN. Twain is seen as she works through the lyrics, meets with vocal doctors and a grief counselor and embarks on unexpected adventures throughout North America that test her courage and self-confidence in an effort to reclaim her life.

In an all new episode titled “Finding My Voice” airing this Sunday, June 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, Twain has a one-on-one vocal training session with legendary vocal coach Eric Vetro before meeting with famed music producer David Foster to discuss producing her new single “Today is Your Day.” The song was ultimately produced by Twain and Nathan Chapman.

Twain then reaches the end of her tour on Sunday, June 12 at 10 p.m. ET/PT in the finale episode titled “Endless Love,” as she marries Frederic Thiebaud and shares never-before-seen wedding footage from the Bahamas. As Twain faces her final challenge, recording a duet of “Endless Love” with superstar Lionel Richie, she reflects on the journey that has brought her to this point in her life.

A five-time Grammy Award winner, Twain has also achieved major success as a songwriter, winning 27 BMI Songwriter awards. To date, she has sold over 75 million albums worldwide, including more than 50 million in the U.S., making her the top-selling female country artist of all time.
