Shania Twain recently visited The Late Late Show with James Corden where she sang her uplifting previous single, “Life’s About to Get Good.” The nearly four-minute song had the country legend donning a stunning two-piece leopard suit as she sang about turning her life around.
Before Shania was spotted on the studio stage, her band and the audience clapped along to the song’s beat. Moments later she entered with soft vocals as she sang of being broken and shattered. A song that discusses moving on after her divorce from her husband, “Life’s About to Get Good” is the most vulnerable the singer has been with listeners.
“I wasn’t just broken, I was shattered / I trusted you so much, you’re all that mattered / You no longer love me and I sang like a sad bird / I couldn’t move on and I think you were flattered,” she sings on the song’s first verse.
By the time the chorus hit, added banjo accompaniment and gospel-like backing singers transformed the heartache into an anthemic power ballad.
“Oh! Life’s about joy, life’s about pain / It’s all about forgiving and the will to walk away / I’m ready to be loved, and love the way I should / Life’s about, life’s about to get good,” Shania sings.
Each time the song came back to the uplifting chorus, screams could be heard from the audience which only furthered Shania’s confidence and vocal power. With a big smile on her face, the singer powered through “Life’s About to Get Good” and transformed the studio performance to an arena-like headlining set.
Shania released “Life’s About to Get Good” in June of 2017 as the lead single from her fifth studio album, Now. She had premiered the song the month prior at Stagecoach Festival where she debuted several new songs off her album. Now marked the first new music from the singer since 2002’s Up! and the first set of music released without the help of Shania’s former husband and producer, Mutt Lange. On Now, Shania served as co-producer as well as a co-writer on each of the album’s 12 tracks.
