Shania Twain would love to create a musical based on her songs – and she wants ABBA’s Björn Ulvaeus to come on board with the project.
On the heels of the release, she spoke to the Take A Chance On Me hitmaker for his ‘Bjorn from ABBA and Friends’ Apple Music Hits radio show, during which the pair discussed the subject of musicals.
“There actually is an interest in doing a musical,” she said. “I just want to take a second to just say how much ABBA music has inspired me in the sense of broadening my whole…
“I grew up listening to three-chord songs, very simple, a lot of storytelling. But musically, when I heard ABBA, I’m like, ‘This is another planet of arrangements.’ And the time signature changes just went to so many unexpected places.”
When Björn suggested Shania should create a musical – much like his group’s ‘Mamma Mia!’ -, she replied: “Yes. Well, listen, I’ll probably need some help. You have all this experience now, I may have to call you back on that.”
In a review of the album, RETROPOP said the album sees the country pop superstar “push forward and continue to carve a legacy on her own terms, as a top-tier writer and producer”.
‘Queen of Me’ is available now.
