Celine Dion releases new French-language song 'Encore un soir'

On the heels of her recently released Queen cover "The Show Must Go On," Celine Dion has once again shared new music with her fans. On Tuesday (May 24), the Canadian songstress debuted the first single off her upcoming French-language album. "I’m very happy to finally be able to present to you “Encore un soir,” wrote the star on her official website.

The moving song is a collaboration between Celine and French composer Jean-Jacques Goldman, who she has worked with on many of her hit records. The single reflects on the passage of time and is part of a promise she made to her late husband René Angélil to march forward with her career. “I am happy to announce that the projects we had discussed with René, being my return to the stage in Las Vegas and the production of a new French-language album, have been fulfilled,” said the singer via a spokesperson.

Celine's upcoming album will be her first French compilation since the release of 2012's Sans Attendre.


In addition to new music, the 48-year-old is also taking her show on the road. After performing seven sold-out shows in Paris, the singer will return home in August for seven shows at the city's Bell Centre.
