Celine Dion Drops New Song ‘Loved Me Back To Life,’ Announces New Album
Say goodbye to the “My Heart Will Go On” Celine Dion you used to know and love, and say hello to a more EDM-influenced Celine.
On her new song “Loved Me Back To Life,” Dion seems to be channeling Rihanna, Miley and Katy with a heavily produced pop song written by Sia — who’s previously written songs for Rihanna and Christina Aguilera — that has her stuttering “back to life” over a bevy of synths. Listen below.
Along with the premiere of her new single, Dion also announced the release of her first English-language album in six years, Loved Me Back To Life, which is due out November 5.
The album — originally titled Water And A Flame — has her working with Babyface, who produced her cover of Janis Ian’s “At Seventeen,” along with a few key members of Adele’s team: Frasier T Smith, who produced “Set Fire To The Rain,” and Eg White, who co-wrote and produced “Chasing Pavements” off her debut album, 19.
Earlier this year, Dion spoke with Katie Couric and premiered the song “Water and a Flame,” a cover of Aussie singer Daniel Merriweather’s track off his 2009 album, Love & War, which features backing vocals from Adele. On it, Dion gets a bit more edgy, singing, “I’m tired of this empty house/ I need a drink to get me out/ I need a couple more to forget your name.”
Fans will also get a chance to hear “Unfinished Songs,” a song Diane Warren wrote for the British movie Song For Marion. Warren has been working with Dion for two decades and has written over a dozen singles for her, including “Because You Loved Me.”
