Powerhouse Shania Twain is releasing a 25th-anniversary edition of her 1997 mega-platinum album Come On Over: Diamond Edition on August 25th via Mercury/UMe.
With Come On Over, it was important for me to give what I thought was the best record of my life – no holding back! I knew I had more in me than one Diamond album 😉 And with that, I'm happy to announce 'Come On Over: Diamond Edition' 💎, out August 25. https://t.co/AentiwOXxC pic.twitter.com/JdLjnc5ypY

The announcement came this morning (July 12) after Hoda Kotb from TODAY presented Twain with a plaque presentation last night at her sold-out Madison Square Garden show.
Come On Over is the top-selling country album and the highest-selling album by a female artist of all time. The original assemblage is home to 16 country-pop compositions, including hits “You’re Still The One,” “Man, I Feel Like A Woman,” “Honey, I’m Home,” “From This Moment On,” “That Don’t Impress Me Much,” “Don’t Be Stupid (You Know I Love You),” and of course, “Come On Over.”
Twain says, “With Come On Over, it was important for me to give what I thought was the best record of my life, and that is why there’s so many songs on it. I thought, “Let’s just load this up in case there’s not another chance. Let’s not hold anything back.” There was no point in saving songs for another album or even giving songs to other artists because I thought this might be my only chance to really make an impact as a follow-up to the prior album, which was already certified Diamond. I would say that Come On Over was so high-pressure for me because I knew I had more in me than one Diamond album.”
