As fans worldwide become acquainted with the long-awaited new single from Shania Twain, theres one fan whos -had the track playing in his head for quite awhile. That listener is Twains nearly 16-year-old son Eja, who was one of the first people to hear Twains comeback track.

The first time I played Lifes 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, Im glad you like that. Why do you like this song so much? He goes, Cause it makes me happy. So thats 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 shes 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.

Hes a good sounding board for tempos and stuff and we both make music at the same time. Hes in his room, Im in mine and hes writing and arranging and producing music every day. We text each other and say, Yeah. Come and listen to what Im doing right now. And hell say, Come and listen to what Im doing right now. And we exchange and give each other feedback. Its quite fun, she shared.

But will the musically inclined family one day collaborate? Shes interested, says the superstar.

Id love to, yeah. Hed like to, too, but were both doing our own little projects right now but we will, Im sure at some point, get together and he wants me write him lyrics and stuff like that and melodies. Well get there, she explained. I said, Son, Ive got to finish this album and Ive gotta focus on one thing. On this, creatively. But well most definitely do it. Hes got so much of his own world going anyway, musically, Im not sure how much he can add to it. Its a whole other thing what he does but its fun. Its fun exchanging and having that music in common.

Lifes About To Get Good, the lead single from Shania Twains new album Now, is currently at country radio.
