We watched Celine Dion debut her comeback single Love Me Back To Life live in July [here], but this week finally sees the Sia-penned cut hit the internet in its mastered form, ready for release! Music charts world over, you have been warned!
On first witnessing the live rendition I did have slight concerns that the contemporary sound of the song might put off some of Dion's older fans. But hearing the album version I'm not so worried about that anymore; thanks to the prominent electric guitar interlude in the song's middle (I had totally missed it in the live version). It's a clever inclusion that successfully nods to Celine's adult contemporary roots and love of a power ballad. Hopefully it should be enough to reassure (those) fans that this Canadian Diva doesn't intend to leave them behind as she modernises her sound and takes aim at a new generation of listener.
Loved Me Back To Life is released September 3rd..
