SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT CANADA ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF LOVED ME BACK TO LIFE, THE NEW STUDIO ALBUM FROM INTERNATIONAL ICON CELINE DION
(September 3, 2013) – Sony Music Entertainment Canada is thrilled to announce the release of Loved Me Back To Life, the highly anticipated new album from multi-diamond-selling and five-time Grammy® Award-winning musical legend Celine Dion. Loved Me Back To Life, Dion’s first English-language album in six years, will be released in Canada Tuesday, November 5 on Columbia Records (see track list below).
The album’s pulsating, upbeat first single, also titled “Loved Me Back To Life,” is available digitally today. Pre-order the album at CelineDion.com and iTunes. Dion will perform “Loved Me Back To Life” live on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Friday, September 6 and on The Ellen DeGeneres Show next Wednesday, September 11. Listen to “Loved Me Back To Life” on CelineDion.com now.
Loved Me Back To Life offered Dion the chance to work with a team of exceptional producers and songwriters including Ne-Yo, Diane Warren, Tricky Stewart, Stevie Wonder, Eg White, Daniel Merriweather, Babyface, Audra Mae Butts, Play Production, Eman, Janis Ian, Danny Mercer, Andrew Goldstein, Shaffer Smith, Jessi Alexander, Tommy Lee James, Corparal, Sauce, Kyle Townsend, Dana Parish, Andrew Hollander, Aaron Pearce, Kuk Harrell, and Walter Afanasieff. The album’s single and title track was written by Sham & Motesart and Sia. In addition, Ne-Yo and Stevie Wonder lend their incredible talents as Dion’s duet partners.
In December of 2007, Dion concluded an unprecedented concert engagement in Las Vegas—five consecutive years of sold-out shows at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, a $100 million venue built exclusively for her performances. This historic, original show, entitled "A New Day...", was one of the highest grossing concerts in music history, selling more than 3 million tickets in its run and helping make Dion the highest-grossing touring artist in the world from 2000 to 2010. In 2011, Celine returned to The Colosseum with a brand-new critically-acclaimed show, simply entitled "Celine," playing to sold-out audiences since opening night. This spectacular show, which will continue for several years to come, features Dion’s greatest hits, some surprising covers, and a few songs featured on Loved Me Back To Life, including the title track.
Having sold more than 220 million albums around the world, Celine Dion is one of the most immediately recognized, widely respected and successful performers in pop music history. In addition to numerous Canadian and international gold, platinum and multi-platinum certifications, Celine Dion has seen six of her albums—Falling Into You, Let’s Talk About Love, Celine Dion, The Colour Of My Love, All The Way… A Decade Of Song and These Are Special Times —each achieve Diamond status in recognition of sales of more than 1 million copies in Canada alone. She has been awarded five Grammy® Awards, including Record of the Year and Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “My Heart Will Go On” in 1998, Album of the Year and Best Pop Album for Falling Into You in 1996, and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for “Beauty and the Beast” in 1992. Both “My Heart Will Go On” and “Beauty and the Beast” received Best Song Academy Awards for their respective years of release.
