Celine Dion’s Next Album Will Feature Pink-Penned ‘Recovery,’ a Rene Angelil Tribute
The next leg of Celine Dion's career is looking pretty f----in' perfect.
Dion, whose most recent English-language LP dropped in 2013, has got a new album on the way, she told Entertainment Tonight. She revealed that "Just Like Fire" singer Pink has written a song for the project — a track Dion said she gushed over when the two singers saw each other at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards in May.
"She is phenomenal," Dion said. "I love her for her talent, for her strength, for her focus, the person she is."
Dion added the song, which Pink wrote after the January death of Dion's husband Rene Angelil, is called "Recovery," and urged fans to "get ready."
"When I saw [Pink], I said, 'For you to take the time to really write a song, to give me a tool, a piece of luggage to help me to move forward to walk to keep going..." Dion offered.
Fans, too, have helped Dion move forward in light of her husband's loss, something for which she said she's especially grateful.
"They are so considerate for my happiness and my sadness, my good and bad moments, and they are [always] supporting me," she said. "The fans are supporting not only my music, but who I am. I've been criticized for being an open book for so long, but it's paying off today because they know me well."
