With her new call to action, “Giddy Up!,” Shania Twain delivers a funky and fun spin on the party anthem. Grab your friends and get ready to saddle up!
The opening track of her highly anticipated new album, Queen of Me, highlights what Twain has always done best. She’s an expert at combining catchy lyrics and a toe-tapping beat with skillful production and instrumentation. The end result? A song that makes you want to throw on your boots and dance whether in the car or the kitchen.
“The saying ‘Let’s Go Girls!’ is such a wonderfully uplifting sentiment now, but it’s just something I said during the recording in the studio and I guess that’s the same for ‘Giddy Up!’. These lines come to me when I’m thinking about how to put a little “pep in my step,” Twain explains. “I want people to feel good when they hear the new album. I want to set a celebratory tone and ‘Giddy Up!’ is a way to call to the audience and say “let’s get ready for some fun!”
With other clever phrasing like “got litty in the cup” and “life is getting shorter, gotta drink it up,” the country icon and her co-writers, David Stewart, RØMANS and Jessica Agombar, have created the perfect vessel to highlight her vocal range and infectious personality. She takes control and leads you expertly through a footloose and fancy free feeling that will have your Saturday nights LIVE!
In a recent tweet, Twain talked about “embracing your individuality, trusting your gut and drop kicking down those doors!” No doubt with this release, the iconic songstress along with the accompanying video will have you doing all three. She will make you feel like “singing in the mirror like it’s Hollywood” and remind you that she is the Queen of Me… and you.
