Céline Dion Releases 'Recovering,' Her Touching New Single Written By Pink

The song was penned in the wake of Dion's loss of her husband and brother.

Céline Dion has already released a new single just weeks after the August 26th release of her French-language album Encore un Soir. This time, however, it's in English — her last English-language album Loved Me Back to Life was released in 2013 — and written by none other than American songwriter and artist Pink

The song is called "Recovering." In a July Interview with, Dion said that Pink approached her after her husband, René Angélil, and her brother, Daniel, died two days apart. "(Pink is) a genuine person," Dion said, "and [it was] so generous of her to take the time to write a song for me during the most difficult time of mine. People have a tendency to send me really sad songs and we do want to sing the touching songs, but life is beautiful, and I really want to believe that René has a life after his life, that he doesn't suffer anymore."
