Celine Dion’s “Loved Me Back To Life”: Hear The Soaring New Single

I’ve been talking about it since she premiered it live last month, and now that the full thing is here, there’s just so much to love about the new Celine Dion single, “Loved Me Back To Life,” that I don’t even know where to start: That stuttering vocal loop! The bombastic production! The funky instrumentation! The huge, surging chorus! The dubby beat drop on the refrain! The fact that it was written by Sia! The fact that it’s new Celine Dion in the first place! It’s all just marvelous.

Unsurprisingly, the song has shades of Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” but it feels markedly fresh and modern in its own right; as many divas have shown, staying relevant gets thornier when you’re entering, y’know, your fourth decade as an international superstar, but this is a solid effort from the Canadian chanteuse that should introduce her to some new fans as well as satisfying longtime supporters.

Listen below.
