Shania Twain is back with a brand new single, “Life’s About To Get Good,” due out in June, and she’ll debut the new song for fans during a headlining set Saturday night at the Stagecoach Festival in Indio, California. In September, Twain also plans to release her first new album in 15 years. The superstar revealed the big news during her appearance on NBC’s The Voice Monday night (April 24), where she served as a first-time-ever fifth judge on the show and key advisor to the remaining contestants.

When writing “Life’s About to Get Good,” Shania explains, “I was at home looking out at the ocean and I said to myself, ‘Here I am stuck in this past of negativity, but it’s so beautiful out. I’m not in the mood to write a ‘feeling-sorry-for-myself’ song.” The songwriter recognized that with all of the negative in life also comes the positive. “You can’t have the good without the bad. And that’s what the song ended up being about.”

With more than 75 million albums sold worldwide and U.S. sales topping 34.5 million, Shania remains the top-selling female country artist of all time. Her Grammy-winning, double diamond-selling 1995 release,The Woman in Me; Come On Over, is the best-selling studio album in Soundscan history by a female artist in any genre and the best-selling country album of all time with over 40 million units sold worldwide.
