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.”

Billboard notes that Dion will perform at tonight's live, televised Stand Up to Cancer event and will hit Ellen on Monday. For now, watch her in conversation with Fuse:
