Sets available on Oct 2nd
Shania Twain is prepping a 25th anniversary Diamond Edition of her blockbuster double diamond album The Woman In Me for October 2nd via UMG Nashville. The reissue will be available as a 2 CD set and three disc box set containing the Diamond Edition, a Remixed Edition and New Vocal Mix. No further information has been unveiled as of press time, but full details are expected on August 14th starting with a performance and announcement on ABC’s Good Morning America.
Released on February 7, 1995, the 12 track album, produced by former husband and rock producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange, was the Canadian artist’s sophomore album and sent her into superstardom with hits like “Any Man Of Mine,” “Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?,” the title track and more. Eight singles were released with Twain co-writing 11 of the 12 tracks.
Lange’s work with Def Leppard brought a fresh sound and crisp sound to country. The enhanced sound combined traditional country with 80s rock that laid the foundation for what country music was to become.
Upon its release, it become her biggest-selling recording with four million copies by the end of the year. It was awarded a diamond certification from the RIAA on November 17, 1997 for selling over ten million copies, marking Twain as the first female country artist to capture the feat. On December 1, 2000, it was certified double diamond for 20 million copies worldwide. The album paved the way for Twain to be crowned the best-selling female country artist in history.
Only she could surpass her own record with her 1997 follow up Come On Over! The 16 song project went on to sell more than 40 million copies worldwide, and retains the honor of best-selling album by a female in music history to this day.
Twain has been teasing the reissue throughout the year on social media, in a subtle manner, mind you. Her current profile photos are the album’s iconic cover, and she’s been sharing diamond Emojis along with some Throwback Thursday teases featuring screenshots from the “Any Man Of Mine” video.
