As it stands, there are 1,400 copies between Wolf Alice’s acclaimed new album ‘Visions Of A Life‘ and Twain’s ‘Now’ in the UK album chart. Twain has just edged into the lead.
Now, the band have shared a plea from drummer Joel Amey – discussing his childhood torment at the hands of the ‘Man, I Feel Like A Woman’ star – likening her resurgence to “a country star makeover of ‘It'”.
“When I was in year four, one of our teachers (Mrs Bond) used to take us for compulsory line dancing lessons every week,” Amey revealed. “My poor, fat, nine-year-old self had to dance back and forth to an endless loop of ‘Man, I Fee Like A Woman’ while cursing the name of Shania Twain.
“Time passes and memories fade. By lo! 15 years later, like a country star makeover of ‘It’, she has returned from her slumber to take on the real life Loosers Club Wolf Alan from taking the top spot. Together we can put an end to this madness.”
He continued: “If you don’t have a copy of ‘Visions Of A Life’ and fancy picking one up this week then I’d love you forever – not actually ’cause of being number one but because I’m very proud of what we’ve made, I really like it and would love it if you did too.”
My friends, help us fend off my new foe. Shania Twain. https://t.co/5pLCukwFtQ
