Shania Twain starts fresh in her music video for “Life's About To Get Good," the first single off of her upcoming album, Now.
The video finds Twain in her home reminiscing on the past and lounging in her pjs, only to be transported to a tropical paradise that features a slew of brightly dressed housekeepers and resort staff. The surprise guests invade Twain's living room and begin to clean house, literally purging the county star's home of past memorabilia, even an old photo of Twain and her ex-husband.
According to the country singer, she wanted to write a song that described where life was heading instead of where it had been. “I was at home, looking out at the ocean, and I said to myself, 'Here I am stuck in this past of negativity, but it's so beautiful out. I'm not in the mood to write a feeling-sorry-for-myself song,'" Twain says. “You can't have the good without the bad. And that's what the song ended up being about."

The single was written by Twain and produced by Matthew Koma and Ron Aniello. Much of the record was inspired by the “Poor Me" singer's split from former producer and husband “Mutt" Lange and in many ways, was also proof she could continue her career without Lange.
“This was an exercise in independence," Twain said. “I really just wanted to test myself and push my limits and face my fears. I haven't worked alone in a really, really long time after all of those years of being partnered with Mutt professionally. It was a huge leap of courage for me to do this alone and I knew I was going to be carrying the weight of it alone, too. I just kept challenging myself and telling myself 'OK, you're going to write this album and we'll find out what you're made of these days.'"
Twain has also released "Swingin' With My Eyes Closed" and the complete track list from the new album. Now is due out on September 29.
