Shania Twain could have some new music to perform in her Shania: Still the One show at Caesars Palace soon. She’s spent her summer at home in Switzerland writing songs for a possible new album. Now she just needs to find the right producer to help her shape the music and get it out to the public.
“That’s the big challenge right now at the moment,” Shania tells ABC News Radio. “It’s a fun challenge. I mean, it’s overwhelming. There’s a lot of amazing producers out there. I’ve just got to make sure that I find the right one suitable to what I want to do and where I want to go with things.”
So far, Shania was written this new batch of songs by herself, but the producer will have a big role in determining the sound and feel of the album.
Says Shania, “That’s why it’s just so important that I get the right person to make sure that it’s the right mix and the right balance of everything.”
In the meantime, Shania’s fans can look forward to 22 more performances of Shania: Still the One at Caesars Palace starting October 15. She kicked off the residency last year to sell-out crowds and rave reviews. Shania credits the show’s success to her longstanding relationship with her fans as well as the risks she took to make Shania: Still the One her most eye-popping production ever.
“You know, you have people that go to shows, probably go to several shows a year,” Shania explains. “They know what they like and they know what to expect and you’ve got to deliver that and more. You have to surprise them.”
Shania admits she was extremely relieved when the show was a success because she put all of herself into it.
She says, “I wrote the show myself. The intention was to take that risk. It was a real challenge for me.”
The ongoing demands of performing such a huge show keep Shania very busy while she’s in Las Vegas, but she hopes to catch some other Vegas headliners’ shows soon. Shania still hasn’t seen fellow Canadian Celine Dion‘s show at Caesars — they both play that same room at different times. As for newcomers to the Vegas strip, Shania expects Britney Spears‘ upcoming show at Planet Hollywood to be a big success when it debuts this winter.
“I’m sure that it’s going to be amazing,” Shania says. “I can only imagine that it would be.”
Tickets for all 22 performances of Shania: Still the One are on sale now at ShaniainVegas.com. She’s playing select dates at Caesars Palace from October 15 through December 14.
