The country superstar just posted the following message on her official fanclub site

Dear Friends,

I am so excited to be writing to you personally again after so long.

First I want to apologize for the delay in releasing new music. Music is the basis of our relationship, after all, and I realize I'm not holding up very well on my end of the relationship! But music has a mind of it's own, and is ruled by a writer's emotions and state of mind, not by a time frame or wishful thinking. I wish like crazy that
I had new music by now since I dream of how fun it would be to see you all again out on tour with new songs to sing, but as most of you know, I have been side-tracked slightly over this past year.

The personal issues that took place just over a year ago have been well documented, and there’s no need to go into more detail here. Since then, I've been inspired by my pain to write and use writing as a therapy through the suffering. I truly wouldn't wish this on anybody as a means to get inspired, but it's been a productive period with so much emotion trying to find it's way out. However, there is no telling how long it will take me to actually finish these songs and record them so they can get out to you.

As many things as there have been to write about through this difficult time in my life, healing is serious business and has taken a lot of the wind out of my sails, slowing me down at times. As you know, I am a mom and all my energy goes to making sure my little man is healthy and happy in every way. This is a full time job, as any
parent understands, but especially difficult when you are battling your own personal crisis at the same time while trying to spare your child of being affected by your own suffering.

One time when I was having a weak moment listening to some sad music and sobbing and slobbering over my computer’s keyboard, Eja walked up behind me and asked me why I was crying. He wasn't sad at first–just totally surprised to see his mom crying (he is seven and never saw me cry before), and didn't know what to make of it. During this intense period, I was managing to hide my devastation from Eja and cried only when I was alone; but this one time was just too hard for me to control and I broke down. I was quick on my feet to answer him though and told Eja that music was very powerful and can make people quite emotional. It can make you want to dance, feel angry, happy or sad and that THIS this song was sad and made me cry. He accepted this, hugged me and went back to what he was doing. Phew, that was tough!

The energy it has taken me to deal with my personal life and managing to still be a responsible parent has been challenging, and while I have been putting what energy I have left at the end of each day into my writing, it's been hard to put it all together into song format.

Please be patient and I will do my best to continue working on a finished album!

Each morning I put my son on the school bus, feed our two dogs Sony and Dolly, drink my orange juice and sit down at the computer to write. I spend most of my time working with lyrics right now, sorting thoughts, expressions and concepts. It often comes out in the form of poetry, diary notes or e-mails to friends. My friends are great listeners and are very patient and generous about it. I often go back to my e-mails for song ideas. When I write in letter form, I don't hold back. I just write it as it comes without considering format, topic, manners, etc. Some of my best songwriting ideas are coming this way.

Time has a way of making everything right, and it is my hope that good music will eventually come out of it. I say "good music” since I don't want to just throw anything at you, just for the sake of hurrying up to get it out. I want my new music to be something I'm personally satisfied with and proud to share with you.

I have friends and family around constantly coaxing me to focus on my music. "Your fans miss you. They want new music. It's been too long." They're all dying for something new too, so they are pretty relentless about it! I know you certainly all do deserve new music and tour dates; not only because it's been so long, but also because of the HUGE support you've all given me during this period. The many blogs and e-mails have warmed my heart, strengthened my confidence, given me courage, and have often even made me laugh out loud…in a good way! I know I am not alone and realize through your support that you are all routing for Eja and I, and our well-being. Thank you!

The other day I started writing a few pages about being hungry as a kid. Some of it was painful to think about but it also made me laugh at the funny times. Reflecting on that period of my life, I realize how true it really is to learn to take the good with the bad. To appreciate that you can't have one without the other. The trick is to give the "good" at least as much of your energy as the "bad" and not to get stuck focussing more on the "bad". I decided to start writing about other stages of my life to help take my focus off the current phase I'm going through. When I'm feeling down, I figured changing my focus to write about other periods of my PAST would help pull me out of the sadness and on to new chapters in my life. It works.

I will sign off now but I look forward to my next letter/blog to you. I just wanted to fill you in a bit on what's going on with me and music, as well as extend my thanks for all of the support that you have given me over this last year and for all these years; and to assure you that I'm fine and managing very well, in fact. I'm enjoying my child, friends and family like I haven't in years, and it's great. I've been experiencing and seeing new things every day, living life with a different and more optimistic attitude. I've jumped out of an airplane at 10,000 feet, I'm riding Spanish and Arabian horses, traveling to exotic places, I've been deep sea diving for the first time! I pull the odd all-nighter, read more books, listen to Eja's favourite music with him, LOUD [ironically his favourite band is ACDC] and basically I'm enjoying life.

Till next time, my friends. Be well, and peace and happiness to all of you.

Love,

Shania

    wish her all the best and can´t wait for the next album. she is such a beautiful person inside and out.
    God bless



  13. 13

    How sad is it that the first 10-15 comments are all horrible, and mean spirited. I think its wonderful that she would take the time to write such a lengthly and honest letter to her fans.
    For the people who said an "oprah episode" and "you mean a very important advertisement" I think you two are pathetic, mean people. Why comment on something that you only have mean thoughts for?

    I never comment on Perez, why would I? But in the off chance that Shania reads some of these comments I hope she sees that some people really appreciate her open thoughts and her kind heart. I cant wait to hear new music from her, she is such a wonderful representation of CANADA.

    Re: loopit – Whats wrong with you? You care enough to click the link, scroll down and leave a disgusting comment, but apparently not enough to be compassionate unless free blow jobs? Wow. I bet your a real winner. Good luck with the ladies you dog.



  17. 17

    Very long winded & boring. Not much of a fan.



  18. 18

    I love Shania and her music more that anything. She makes me happy and forget all my troubles when I'm feeling down. I'm so grateful that she took her time out to write this message for us. I can't wait for her new materials and I want her to know that she can take as long as she has to, because her true fans will still be here… patiently waiting. I love you Shania. I'm keeping you forever and for always.

  25. 25


  26. 26

    Re: SheriMoonFireFly – She sang Man I Feel Like A Woman and From This Moment and many more, but those two songs were cross over hits and were played on every radio station in the later 90's. So unless your 7 you should probably realize who she is, but your probably EMO and listen to techno or Heavy Metal or something you can drown your sorrows in.

    Too long. Sorry Shania, not enough time to read all that wordiness.
    Don't care enough to get through it all!



  32. 32

    Nice letter, but she could use some grammar lessons. :/



  33. 33

    way too long to finish, I bet perez didn't read the whole thing either.



  34. 34

    Re: SheriMoonFireFly
    oh come on like you don't know who she is. She's Shania Twain! She's not just a country star. Reading this touched me Shania. I'm with ya girl, and can't wait for the next album!



  35. 35

    I love her and I think she is way better off without her dog "Mutt". She is very talented, but with a new album coming out, this sounds like free publicity for her. Oh, and let's hope that Eja don't look like his dog dad!



  36. 36

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSS YESSSSSS YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!!!!
    SHANIA!



  37. 37

    Nobody cares about your "hey, i feel like a whore" ass anymore, Shania.



  39. 39

    So glad to hear from Shania. Her music has gotten me through so much. I can't wait to see her on tour again!



  40. 40

    Aw, well that's good! I hope that she comes out with something soon! She's one of the few country artists I'll listen too.



  41. 41

    WE LOVE YOU SHANIA!!! AND I KNOW YOU WILL BE BACK BETTER THEN EVER!!!



  42. 42

    I'll be happy to help you write some songs and produce your record. I'll also be happy to fuck you repeatedly…



  43. 43

    TALENTLESS. PIECE. OF. FAKE. SHIT!!! Go AWAY and never, EVER come back!!!!! You are a JOKE.



  44. 44

    Who is SHE? Oh My Goodness you need to get her CD that won her so many awards. She is amazing! Lets just say that for me, as a women, it's an uplifting sing along song type CD. It's just a good listen and if you love good music, take a listen. My mother and father listened to country music and I can't stand most of it, some isn't bad but not what I like to listen to, lol. I like it' upbeat.



  45. 45

    FOR ALL THE IDIOTS THAT SAY MEAN THINGS SHANIA IS WORTH A BILLION DOLLARS.. HOW MUCH YOU GUYS WORTH LOSERS???



  46. 46

    That was lovely. Thanks Shania!



  47. 47

    To All You Haters.. I breeze through this amazing website from time to time and I laugh at the good stuff and I just learn from the not so good stuff.. I would like from everyone who posted those negative things about Shania Twain to look deep within your soul, your spirit, and your own pathetic lives.. Shania is a succes, are you? Shania made something of herself and stuck by her roots, have you? Shania is an amazing CLASSY lady and she doesnt deserve this BS that you uneducated human beings have post, Get a Life, Get a Grib and You think you know everything, but you dont.. Read a book about her, Read the websites about her, and learn instead of being a total jerk.. SMILE!
