Not that Céline Dion has ever recorded a non-gorgeous track in her life probably, but the new song "Recovering" is truly at the highest echelon of specialness. The Pink-written ballad details Dion's life after the January death of her husband, René Angélil.
"I am recovering," Dion begins over a classical piano. The second verse gets super emotional: "I am a recovering anxiety addict / A broken perfectionist, somewhat erratic / I am a recovering, a constant regretter / Hold it against her / At least till forever."
Listen to "Recovering" now:
Back in June, Pink told Entertainment Weekly of Dion:
“She is like a magic light bulb, walking around emanating light into the world. When I wrote this song, there was such a simple need to it. I know everyone wants to hear Céline wail, I wanted to hear Céline’s soul. She is just simply amazing, and getting to write a song for her is one of the biggest honors of my life.”
At the same time, Dion said:
“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.”
