ONE of the world's biggest pop-country singers is finally making a comeback.

Canadian superstar Shania Twain has announced plans to release her first album in 15 years in September.

The album will be led by the single Life's About to Get Good that's due to drop in June.

Twain made the announcement during her appearance on The Voice USA on Monday night, where she appeared as the first-time-ever fifth judge on the show and a key adviser to the contestants.

When writing Life's About to Get Good, Twain explained in a statement, "I was at home looking out at the ocean and I said to myself, 'Here I am stuck in this past of negativity, but it's so beautiful out. I'm not in the mood to write a 'feeling-sorry-for-myself' song ...You can't have the good without the bad. And that's what the song ended up being about," Billboard reports.

Her last album, Up!, was released in 2002 and topped the Billboard 200 albums chart.
