Chris Willman Senior Music Writer and Chief Music Critic After being with Mercury Nashville since the beginning of her recording career in the early 1990s, Shania Twain has a new label home, Republic Nashville, and a new song and video to go with the switch — “Waking Up Dreaming,” her first official single in five years.

It’s not just a new label for her — it’s a new label to everyone, as Twain’s statement about the signing established that she is the debut artist for Republic Nashville, a division of Republic Records. “I couldn’t think of a better partner than Republic Nashville,” Twain said. “I’m honored and excited to be the label’s first artist and lead the charge of this new and exciting chapter.

In this respect, it feels like a new beginning all around, and I’m embracing it wholeheartedly.” Said Republic co-founder and CEO Monte Lipman, “Shania is one of the most influential and impactful artists of this generation.

She’s a rare talent whose legacy continues to resonate throughout the world. We feel a tremendous amount of gratitude to support her new body of work, which is spectacular.” Although the cover art for the single and other images released have Twain posing with a cowboy hat, “Waking Up Dreaming” embraces her pop side, not least of all with an Isaac Rentz-directed music video that borrows the bygone iconography of glam-rock and hair-metal.
