Shania Twain has been spending her downtime during the coronavirus pandemic writing songs.
The country star, who had to cancel plans for her Let’s Go! Las Vegas residency due to concerns about the virus, said there has been a silver lining to her time off the road.
“I mean, I’ve got a mountain of songs now,” she said during a recent virtual appearance on ABC‘s “Live With Kelly and Ryan.” “You know, COVID has lasted so much longer than any of us expected, so I have enough music for three albums now.”
“I just keep writing and writing and writing and writing. Yeah, it’s good. I have been very productive, yeah,” she added.
Twain said she hopes to return to Planet Hollywood’s Zappos Theater soon and finish her Las Vegas residency.
“Well, I’m waiting to get back to Vegas onstage at Zappos. I’ve been waiting like everybody else for the ‘okay’ to get back in the room, you know?” she said. “So, I’m on standby, and writing music.”
Twain will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of her 1995 breakthrough album, The Woman in Me, with a special edition box set of the project.
