Shania Twain Says The Pandemic Pushed Her To Make Music
Twain opened up about her latest music project and how the COVID-19 pandemic pushed her to make music again. In an “All Things Considered” podcast chat, the singer talked about how the pandemic influenced her new music.
“Because this album was written during COVID – as I always do, I (used) songwriting as my therapy. But with the forced isolation and everything, I just needed to pick myself up, cheer myself up,” Twain said per NPR. “(I) started writing songs that made me feel like dancing and put me in a good mood.
She noted that her Covid experience was not great and that she “got the COVID pneumonia… so I ended up being (air evacuated) to an available bed and hospitalized there.”
Twain added, “When I got out of that hospital, the timing was amazing – I saw someone talking about air, the blessing of air … and I just started writing this song about all the things we can do with air, other than the obvious.”
