Switzerland: Celine Dion Experiments New Genre

Celine Dion’s international fans will be delighted this week that her long overdue comeback is finally coming to fruition. The English-language counterpart to her Sans Attendre album has long been teased and delayed on more than one occasion but yesterday the lead single, Loved Me Back To Life was finally unveiled and released.

The French-Canadian superstar who took home the Eurovision crown for Switzerland in 1988 launched her last English comeback a whole six years ago with the single Taking Chances, from the album of the same name. Despite a number of high profile performances and reasonable success in her native Canada, internationally the single didn’t quite perform as well as could have been hoped, reaching number 40 in the United Kingdom and number 54 in the US Hot 100.

It seems that this time around, she wants a hit with which to launch the album, and so has recruited the writing talents of Australian singer-songwriter Sia, who has recently written hit singles for Rihanna, Ne-Yo and Rita Ora, as well as co-writing and featuring on mammoth hits by Flo Rida (Wild Ones) and David Guetta (Titanium and She Wolf). Sia certainly seems to have sprinkled her brand of magic dust over the song, which is mid-tempo, R’n’B tinged with massive percussive production and soaring high notes as would of course be expected from a Celine Dion single.

The song sounds like a hit, and if Celine is going to embark on a successful chart comeback, this seems like the song to do it for her, but are people still interested in what Celine Dion releases in 2013, a whole quarter century after she triumphed at the Contest in Dublin? We will soon find out, as Loved Me Back To Life is available to buy from iTunes stores around the world, with the album (also titled Loved Me Back To Life), to follow in November. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com and let us know below what you think of the track.
