Country Music superstar Shania Twain turns 48 today, and reveals progress on her first new album since 2002's "Up!"

"I'm pretty much there with my songs, and I'm really just sitting on the fence in regards to a producer," Twain said in an interview with Rolling Stone.

The "Still the One" singer said she's been "listening to a lot of records" and doing her homework to find a good match.

The she knows "this is last year," Twain said she's "really stuck on Lana Del Rey."

What can fans expect from the Canadian country star's upcoming album?

"There are probably less upbeat songs," Twain said. "I would say it's more half and half compared to what I've done in the past, where I would've learned more towards mostly uptempo songs."

"I'm different, I've evolved, and I want that to be reflected in the music. At the same time I don't want to abandon the root of what I am."

Twain is country music's biggest-selling female artist of all time, and she launched a residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas last year with a series of sold-out dates. She will be returning to Vegas October 15th for a series of performances through mid-December.
