Shania's Hot New Single, "Swingin' With My Eyes Closed"
Yall. SHANIA IS BACK! And better than ever. She proves this in her new tune, “Swinging With My Eyes Closed” , which was released to all music platforms on August 18th. This song is the latest single release from her new album, Now, which is set to come out September 29th. (Believe me, we’re counting down the days!)
Shania’s new single showcases her powerful and controlled vocals. With an island-inspired groove, the tune features various instruments such as horns and congas. The chorus explodes into a inspiring and catchy hook with beautifully written lyrics -
“I’m swingin’ with my eyes closed / Got my hair down / A wide open road / I’m swingin’ with my eyes closed / Only God knows how far it goes / Fist up in the air / Oh like we don’t care / Swingin’”
Shania recently told Today that the inspiration behind the song was the “fighter in [her]”.
She explained it as, “I was thinking of a boxer taking a swing, or a baby first coming out with his eyes and fists closed. They can’t even see yet and they’re swinging with their eyes closed.”
The strange part about the making of this song is the fact that she originally intended for it to be a “darker” type of tune. She explained, “It’s just all of a sudden the light went on and there was light as well as darkness.”
On September 18th, Shania will head out on her Shania Now Tour - in order to celebrate her first album in FIFTEEN YEARS. She’s still got it, folks. Be sure to check out the single for yourself on iTunes, Spotify, and more!
