Shania Twain releases ‘Queen of Me (Royal Edition)’


Shania Twain has released ‘Queen of Me (Royal Edition)’, the deluxe edition of latest album Queen Of Me. The deluxe ‘royal edition’ features five extra tracks, including two new originals – “Bone Dry” and “Wanted Man.”  To stream Queen of Me (Royal Edition), head here.

Twain shares: “I wrote ‘Bone Dry’ alone on the acoustic guitar and the song is about having everything in the world but still feeling empty. I guess it’s about whatever you want it to be about as the listener but there is some reading between the lines with this song! I remember waking up thinking I’ve got everything I could want in the world; I should wake up super happy and feeling grateful and enthusiastic about the day. But the good life I have now compared to my underprivileged youth can sometimes leave me feeling impatient and impossible to satisfy. ‘Bone Dry’ is my reflection on how money, beauty, fame, power, elements that really don’t bring genuine fulfillment. It’s the simple things in life that do for me personally. Like the joy of parenting, being in love, smelling roses, the company of animals, dreaming, creative freedom, nature. When I stay connected to these things, I’m truly happy and whole.”

Twain also collaborated with Breland on the reimagining of “Inhale/Exhale Air.” Shared Breland: “I am a huge Shania Twain fan and have always dreamt of singing on a song with her. The first Super Bowl I can remember watching was the one that she played halftime, and once I got into country music as an artist, she was my number one dream collab. What she represents for country music and beyond is so important, and she’s opened up doors for artists like me. It was a no-brainer for me to be on this song and I’m looking forward to playing some shows with her this summer.”

Shania’s Queen of Me Tour just kicked-off on Friday, April 28th at Spokane Arena in Spokane, WA. The tour will make stops across North America and Europe in Vancouver, Denver, Toronto, Los Angeles, New York, London, Dublin and more before wrapping up on November 14th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC.
