Shania Twain fans have been awaiting a new album for almost 15 years and it looks like the wait may be over.  Twain has been posting images of herself in the recording studio on social media, but one post has fans wondering if the album is almost finished.  Producer Jake Gosling took to twitter saying “Been a pleasure working with Shania Twain on her new album.  I can’t wait for you to hear. #friends.”
