Seven. Years. Later.

After six years of no new Shania Twain, we finally have some new Shania Twain. 

The 51-year-old singer released a music video Friday for her new single, "Life's About To Get Good." Her album, "Now," is set to release this fall. 

 

The upbeat video pays an amazing homage to the 1997 girl power anthem, "Man, I Feel Like A Woman." You see her in her closet briefly wearing the same black bustier dress and top hat from the music video.

She posted a still to Instagram with the caption: "Still fits." YAS.

BUT, it also makes a dig at her shady ex-husband, Robert “Mutt” Lange and confirms the rumors about WHY they got a divorce

Take a look for yourself and see if you notice the subtle diss: 

The meaning behind "Life's About To Get Good", which is obviously about moving on after a bad breakup, includes lyrics that give us a peek into what our girl Shania was probably feeling when she was going through their divorce.

Did Shania's husband cheat on her? Oh boy, get this:  

"I wasn't just broken/ I was shattered/ I trusted you so much, you're all that mattered/You no longer love me, and I sang like a sad bird/I couldn't move on, and I think you were flattered."

Yikes. Needless to say, we've all been there, and thankfully the song also shows how she moved on from what was a very messy relationship. 

"Life's about joy, life's about pain/It's all about forgiving, and the will to walk away/I'm ready to be loved, and love the way I should/Life's about, life's about to get good."

In the video, you see Shania grab a black and white photo of her and Lange as she sings, “It was time to forget you,” and then flip it upside down. 

So why is Shania just now putting out a Mutt-diss video?

Their 17-year marriage ended in 2010 when he, a 68-year-old record producer, cheated on her with her best friend, 51-year-old Marie-Anna Thiebaud. 

Our girl got the ultimate form of revenge by moving on with Marie-Anne's ex-husband, Frederic Thiebaud. They got married in 2011, and are still together today. 

In an interview with Rolling Stone in February, she hinted that most of her new album would be about her relationship with Lange. Still, that was like 7 years ago. Why now? 

Well apparently, she's been writing and working on these songs for awhile, and it's been a form of therapy to her. Her struggle is really shown in the song, "Who's Gonna Be Your Girl?" 

"It's about feeling unappreciated and knowing that you are secondary," she said. "Having to live with someone that has different priorities and accepting that you're not the most important thing in a person's life." 

Shania not only had to battle through her divorce from her husband and producer, but she also had stress-related dysphonia, a vocal cord disorder that resulted in her losing her voice for several years.

"I felt I was never going to make another album," she told Closer. "It was devastating. There’s so many challenges in coming back to something you haven’t done in a long time, but I’m not about to give up now!" 

As a huge Shania fan, I couldn't be happier about her comeback. Her new music, of course, has us reminiscing on some of the classics. Even Haim just covered, "That Don't Impress Me Much." And it's so good!

Congrats Shania. Happy to have you back.
