‘Falling Into You’ is Celine’s fourth English release and what critics have called her most adventurous album to date. Working with such producers as long-time colleague David Foster (Barbra Streisand, Billy Joel, Paul McCartney, Neil Diamond), Jim Steinman (Meatloaf, Bonnie Tyler, Sisters Of Mercy), Humberto Gatica (Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklin, Robert Palmer), Ric Wake (Taylor Dane, Mariah Carey), and the talented songwriter Jean-Jacques Goldman, Celine revisits familiar ground while venturing into new territory.
‘Falling Into You’ was recorded at the Hit Factory, Record Plant and Power Station in New York City as well as Mandeville Studios, Track Record Studios, Capitol Studios and Westlake Audio & Ocean Way Recording in Los Angeles. Additional material was also recorded at Compass Point studios in Nassau.
Lush ballads and love songs that have become her signature, a Motown classic and tons of strong material – Celine wouldn’t have it any other way.
One of many focus tracks on ‘Falling Into You’ is the memorable and moving “Because You Loved Me.” Written by Diane Warren, the composer of dozens of Top 10 singles, and produced by David Foster, with whom Celine has worked on every album since her 1990 Epic label debut, ‘Unison,’ this track contains all of the necessary elements for success. “Because You Loved Me” is the theme from the Miramax film, ‘Up Close And Personal,’ starring Robert Redford and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Among some of the featured musicians on ‘Falling Into You’ are Todd Rundgren, Fonzi Thorton, David Foster, Sheila E., Aldo Nova, and Ottmar Liebert. Of course, no Celine Dion album would be complete without such impassioned ballads as “Because You Loved Me” and her cover of Eric Carmen’s 1975 hit, “All By Myself.” In addition to contributions from Jim Steinman, Billy Steinberg, Diane Warren and Jean-Jacques Goldman, two Canadians, Dan Hill and Aldo Nova, also provided titles.
‘Falling Into You’ was a giant step in a remarkable career, featuring songs which reveal the full range of Celine Dion’s vocal and interpretive skills.
