Shania Twain Recalls Prince Asking Her To Work On ‘The Next Rumours’

Shania Twain Recalls Prince Asking Her To Work On ‘The Next Rumours’

In an interview with Apple Music last week, Shania Twain spoke about the time she almost worked with Prince before his death.

“I missed out on that because Prince called me when I got divorced,” Shania told Zane Lowe during the conversation. “We’re on the phone and he said, ‘Shania, why don’t you come to Paisley Park? I want to make the next Rumours album with you.'”

“And that was the weirdest thing he could have ever have said,” she continued, “because Mutt [Lange], his standard of what he thought, of what I could live as a standard was that album, [Fleetwood Mac’s] Rumours album. And he said that to me. So when Prince said that to me, I’m like . ‘This is way too ironic what you’re saying.’ Right? And I’m such a major Prince fan.”

Twain admitted that she felt “too insecure to go and get with Prince in the studio” because she was still in the process of finding her voice after splitting from Lange.

Shania said that Prince laid out some ground rules for his would-be studio time with her. One of the rules was that no swearing would be allowed at Paisley Park.

“So that was another strike,” Twain joked. “I’m like, ‘Oh no, I love you so much, but I don’t think I could get through writing and recording an album without swearing, somewhere along the way! What are you going to do to me if I swear? I might have to stand in the corner or something.’ I wasn’t sure about that. I don’t think I was ready for what all that was going to mean for me. I didn’t give up on it or anything, but then he died.”
