Shania Twain Explains Her 15-Year Break, Makes A Surprise Announcement

After a fifteen-year hiatus, which honestly felt like eternity, country superstar Shania Twain is set to make a comeback!

The Canadian-born artist made the announcement on the singing competition The Voice, during her stint as mentor.

Despite racking up awards, Shania had to stop performing after her being diagnosed with dysphonia, a condition which affects the vocal chords and hinders the ability to speak and sing. Hers was caused by a bout of Lyme Disease.

Thankfully, after years of vocal therapy, she is finally fit to record new music and release an album.

The album name is yet to be revealed but it set to be released in September and fans will get to hear the first single, Life's About to Get Good as early as June.

"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," Shania told Rolling Stone.

The songs are inspired by the hurdles she's had to go through over the last few years including her breakup with husband Robert "Mutt" Lange in 2008.

"Writing is my therapy and writing this new album helped me come to terms with a lot of things emotionally," tweeted the Grammy-winner.

Man! We are very much looking forward to hearing Shania on the radio again! How about you?
