As fans worldwide become acquainted with the long-awaited new single from Shania Twain, there’s one fan who’s -had the track playing in his head for quite awhile. That listener is Twain’s nearly 16-year-old son Eja, who was one of the first people to hear Twain’s comeback track.
“The first time I played ‘Life’s About to Get Good,’ he loved it,” Twain told Sounds Like Nashville and other media recently. “He got up from his chair and it just cheered him up. I said, ‘Oh, well, I’m glad you like that. Why do you like this song so much?’ He goes, ‘’Cause it makes me happy.’ So that’s from a teenager and he just likes feeling happy and likes that spirit in music.”
Eja has been a great ear for his mom while she’s worked on her first album in 15 years (nearly his entire life). The teen is busy working on music himself and the two often swap ideas and arrangements back and forth.
“He’s a good sounding board for tempos and stuff and we both make music at the same time. He’s in his room, I’m in mine and he’s writing and arranging and producing music every day. We text each other and say, ‘Yeah. Come and listen to what I’m doing right now.’ And he’ll say, ‘Come and listen to what I’m doing right now.’ And we exchange and give each other feedback. It’s quite fun,” she shared.
But will the musically inclined family one day collaborate? She’s interested, says the superstar.
“I’d love to, yeah. He’d like to, too, but we’re both doing our own little projects right now but we will, I’m sure at some point, get together and he wants me write him lyrics and stuff like that and melodies. We’ll get there,” she explained. “I said, ‘Son, I’ve got to finish this album and I’ve gotta focus on one thing. On this, creatively. But we’ll most definitely do it.’ He’s got so much of his own world going anyway, musically, I’m not sure how much he can add to it. It’s a whole other thing what he does but it’s fun. It’s fun exchanging and having that music in common.
“Life’s About To Get Good,” the lead single from Shania Twain’s new album Now, is currently at country radio.
