Let’s Go (Jersey) Girls: Shania 25 Year Anniversary Editions Drop Today
It’s been almost 26 years since Shania Twain’s legendary album ‘Come On Over’ was released. It was her third album and was first made available in North America on November 4th, 1997. Today, Shania is releasing several 25th-anniversary editions of that album.
If you’re old enough to remember, you know the album was so crazy huge and it crossed over to multiple radio formats. I can remember thinking that it seemed like there was a Shania Twain song playing on every radio station all the time.
I remember my girlfriend, now my wife Kathleen being obsessed with it. She would listen to it on her walks, in the car, in the house. A lot of women had the same experience and that’s one of the reasons it became so successful.
I liked it too, but not to that extent. I remember surprising Kathleen with tickets during that tour, and it’s one of the most fun and memorable experiences we’ve had in our years together.
‘Come On Over’ remains both the top-selling country album and the highest-selling album by a female artist of all time. For the upcoming special edition, the entire tracklist will be completely remastered from the original tapes.
The 25th-anniversary reissue will be available in 3CD Super Deluxe, 3LP Super Deluxe, 3LP International Super Deluxe, 2LP Deluxe, 2CD Deluxe, and Digital formats. Fans in the United States will also have access to 2LP Deluxe Retail exclusives.
According to AllAccess “the three LP Super Deluxe international editions will include a bonus disc with nine additional tracks, featuring live duets with Chris Martin, Elton John, Alison Krauss and the Backstreet Boys, plus many other live tracks and remixes. The three-CD Super Deluxe edition is also packaged in a commemorative hardback book with notes from Shania.”
Shania said, “It was important for me to give what I thought was the best record of my life, and that is why there are so many songs on it.”
Let’s go girls!
All of Taylor Swift’s Surprise Songs on the Eras Tour
Ever since Taylor Swift kicked off her Eras Tour back in March, she announced to her fans that she would perform two surprise acoustic songs at every show. With the first show taking place in Glendale, Arizona, Swift made good on that promise and performed “Mirrorball” from folklore and “Tim McGraw” from her 2006 self-titled debut album. Since then, the award-winning singer-songwriter has kept up with her promise.
With ten studio albums, three re-recorded studio albums (so far), five extended plays, and four live albums under her belt, Swift said that she has enough songs to cover the 52-date trek without repeating any songs. However, if she ever feels like she didn’t give a performance her all, there’s a chance she might perform it again. She also said there would be an exception of songs from Midnights, which might get played more than once on the tour. Swift has already hinted that this is what happened with her April 1 performance of “Clean,” which was requested by her opener Gracie Abrams in Arlington, Texas. On a TikTok stream of the show, Swift commented that she could have played the song “better in a higher key, so that’s technically a mess up.” She played the song again a month later in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
As we previously reported, Swift kicked off her Eras Tour on March 17 with the release of a re-recording of songs “Eyes Open,” “Safe & Sound” and “If This Was a Movie.” She also released her previously-leaked song “All the Girls You Loved Before.” Fitting with the theme of her Eras Tour, which
