Grammy Award-winning singer Celine Dion has just released a new single entitled "Loved Me Back to Life", the lead track off her forthcoming new album of the same name due on November 5. It will be the 45-year-old diva's first English language recording since her album "Taking Chances" released in 2007.
Fans of the French-speaking diva who know her best for her soaring vocals on romantic ballads will be surprised when they hear her newest single, which sounds quite different from her usual repertoire. The track uses "a beat drop that could almost be described as dubstep" which is more associated with electronic dance music artists.
Penned by prolific songwriter Sia Furler and produced by Sham & Motesart, the song was first debuted by Dion back in July during a live performance in Quebec City. She says people might think she's "trying to reinvent myself" because of the edgier material that has come her way towards completing her new album but it's rather more of "I am at a place in my career where I'm 45, I'm at the peak of my life, and I've never felt like this before. I want to have a good time."
The "Loved Me Back to Life" album will feature both new and covers songs from her Las Vegas show. Collaborating with her will be R 'n' B artists Babyface, Ne-Yo, as well as the legendary Stevie Wonder, who will sing a duet of "Overjoyed" with Dion.
