Shania Twain may have owned the ’90s era of country music with big hits like “That Don’t Impress Me Much” and “You’re Still the One,” but she continues to prove that she hasn’t lost her shine.


The 52-year-old icon, who will release her long-awaited new album, “Now,” in September, recently surprised a crowd of unsuspecting fans at Spotify headquarters in New York City.

The 50 super-fans in attendance were pretty lucky already, as they got the opportunity to listen to Shania’s forthcoming album ahead of its release date.

“I remember listening to her when I was a little kid with my mom and dad,” one fan gushed. Another fan added, “I was Shania for Halloween in kindergarten!”

During the last song on the record, Shania walked into the room and was greeted with screams, cheers and tears from the emotional fans.

“I’m so glad that you got to hear [the album] early. I’m really, really happy to share it with you,” Shania sweetly told her loyal listeners, as you can see in the clip above. “Obviously, I’m dying for it to come out. I’m very impatient, and the reason I’m so impatient is because I want to get feedback and I want to know what everybody thinks. It’s been so long, and it’s really great to be back.”

“Now,” which will be Shania’s first album in 15 years, is due out on Sept. 29. In addition to new music, Shania announced plans to embark on a “Now” tour next year. The trek runs from May-August 2018.
