HER HIGHLY ANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM AVAILABLE AUGUST 26TH
Columbia Records is thrilled to announce the release of ENCORE UN SOIR, the highly anticipated new album from multi- platinum-selling and five-time Grammy Award-winning musical legend, Céline Dion. ENCORE UN SOIR is available for pre-order now and in-stores from August 26th through Sony Music Entertainment Australia.
The title track and lead single ‘Encore un soir’, was composed by Jean-Jacques Goldman, marking a long-awaited reunion, 12 years in the making! Céline and René’s vision of a new collaboration with this legendary artist came to fruition with ‘Encore un soir’, and this tailor-made song will be an instant-grat track for those who pre-order the album.
For the first time, the legendary Francis Cabrel and Serge Lama co-wrote a song for Céline. Jacques Veneruso, her most trusted ally in recent years, who has contributed the unforgettable hymns ‘Je ne vous oublie pas’ and ‘Parler à mon père,’ has written and composed a new song as well. Grand Corps Malade, who had collaborated on Céline’s SANS ATTENDRE album has once again offered his poetry to this new album.
New partners have also been added to the family. Zaho who has proven with her song ‘Tourner la page’ that she knows how to write crossover hits, contributes to the new album. Florent Mothe et Mutine add their names to this new story with four pop- flavored songs.
As Quebec is always close to Céline’s heart, she wanted to pay tribute to its rich musical repertoire by reinterpreting the classic Robert Charlebois song ‘Ordinaire.’ Marc Dupré, a multi-platinum artist in Québec and author of many chart topping radio hits, is also collaborating with Céline on this album. Let’s not forget Daniel Picard, who saw his song ‘À la plus haute branche’ chosen from over 4,000 submissions following a contest launched on Céline’s website.
￼￼More involved than ever, Céline voluntarily chose uplifting themes that focused on life and positivity.
A TRIUMPHANT RETURN TO THE STAGE
￼After 2 concerts in Antwerp in front of over 20,000 people, Céline Dion is in Paris for 9 sold out concerts at the AccorHotel Arena. Paris is the second stop of a 26 date tour that will see her perform in Montréal starting July 31st (10 concerts) in Quebec City starting August 20th (5 concerts) and in Trois-Rivières August 30th (2 concerts)
“A concert played under the sign of love…surrounded by 29 musicians, she is a diva…her voice is strong and pure…there are no flourishes, just an elegant way to say: ‘thank you’ right from the start.”
“‘I feel better when I sing’ Striding on stage from left to right she punctuates her songs with a subtle hand movement, often pointed to the sky…”
“An elegant, modest and sophisticated show”
Journal de Montréal
“Céline Dion made her triumphant return to the stage Monday night in Belgium. THE singer launched her new tour with aplomb, simplicity and emotion…”
“The diva from Quebec enflamed Bercy with a show full of energy” “The triumphant return of Céline Dion to Paris…” “Combative…“
“It’s a classic ‘chanson’ from the French repertoire and, thanks to Mouffe, is probably the best ‘chanson’ of the repertoire.”
“A classic concert, elegant in its simplicity”
