Now is the fifth studio album by Canadian singer and songwriter Shania Twain. It was released on September 29, 2017 by Mercury Nashville. The album was produced by Twain alongside Ron Aniello, Jake Gosling, Jacquire King and Matthew Koma.
Following a severely weakened singing voice caused by Lyme disease and dysphonia, Twain took an indefinite hiatus from music beginning in the mid-2000s, and at one point was unsure if she would ever be able to sing again. Following intense vocal rehabilitation and a successful concert residency in Las Vegas, Shania: Still the One, she began planning a new studio album in 2013. Written solely by Twain, Now is her first studio album in which she assumed an integral role in its production, co-producing every track. It is also Twain's first album since her 1993 self-titled debut studio album to not be co-written with or produced by her ex-husband Robert John "Mutt" Lange.
Now is a country pop album with a diverse range of influences, including rock, R&B, and dancehall. The album's lyrics deal with themes of love, loss, resilience, and self-discovery. The album was a critical and commercial success, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and selling over 1 million copies in the United States in its first week of release.
