Shania Twain unveils new song, a breakup anthem called 'Poor Me'

2017-07-21
Shania Twain has released the second song from her upcoming album Now, and it's fantastic. 'Poor Me' is a ballad about the end of a relationship, possibly inspired by Shania's own divorce. The song sees Shania at her most assertive, acknowledging the futility of feeling sorry for oneself. “Poor me this/Poor me that/Why do I keep looking back?” she sings in the mid-tempo guitar-led song. 'Poor Me' was one of eight tracks Attitude heard at a listening event for the new album. Shania is the sole songwriter on Now, which she also co-produced, making the whole album seem more intimate than anything she has ever done before. Coming 15 years after her last album, Shania’s life has gone through a lot of changes in the years since 2002’s Up! – including her divorce and the years she took off to deal with various vocal problems and a Lyme disease diagnosis. Now will be released on September 29. More stories: Gareth Thomas challenges homophobic trolls to face-to-face meeting ‘American Horror Story’ season 7 theme FINALLY revealed
