NEW YORK, Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Loved Me Back To Life, the highly anticipated new album from multi-platinum-selling and five-time Grammy Award-winning musical legend Celine Dion, is available everywhere today, November 5 via Columbia Records. Highlighted by the pulsating, upbeat lead single—also titled "Loved Me Back To Life" and penned by Sia and Sham & Motesart—Loved Me Back To Life is Dion's first English-language album in six years.
Praised for her incredible, one-of-a-kind vocal ability, critics are raving about Dion and Loved Me Back To Life. Billboard suggests that the album "features some of her most vocally challenging and artistically rewarding performances yet," while USA Today says the singer is "still at her best." And the New York Post declares that "Dion has returned with a record that's easily her edgiest."
Just last week, Dion stopped by TODAY, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and The View to perform songs from Loved Me Back To Life. In addition, QVC aired the singer's very special Pandora Presents concert, which took place Tuesday, October 29 at New York City's Edison Ballroom. Tune into The Dr. Oz Show tomorrow, November 6 to see Dion interviewed and perform "Somebody Loves Somebody."
Following her successful U.S. launch, Dion heads to Europe, where this coming weekend she will perform on Germany's top TV Wetten Dass (November 9) and The X Factor in the U.K. (November 10), followed by a triumphant return to France. Dion's French language album, Sans Attendre, released exactly one year ago, was among France's best-selling albums of 2012.
Loved Me Back To Life offered Dion the chance to work with a team of exceptional producers and songwriters including Ne-Yo, Sia, Diane Warren, Tricky Stewart, Stevie Wonder, Eg White, Daniel Merriweather, Babyface, Sham & Motesart, Audra Mae Butts, Play Production, Eman, Janis Ian, Danny Mercer, Andrew Goldstein, Jessi Alexander, Tommy Lee James, Corparal, Sauce, Kyle Townsend, Dana Parish, Andrew Hollander, Aaron Pearce, Kuk Harrell, and Walter Afanasieff. In addition, Ne-Yo and Stevie Wonder lend their incredible talents as Dion's duet partners.
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 U.S. and international gold, platinum and multi-platinum certifications, Celine Dion has seen two of her albums—Falling Into You and Let's Talk About Love—each achieve RIAA Diamond status in recognition of sales of more than 10 million copies in the U.S. alone (each selling more than 30 million worldwide). 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.
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.
