Dion on trying a different approach:
“There was a point in my career I can remember for maybe 10 years it was all about, ‘Who’s gonna hold a note longer? Who’s gonna sing the note higher?’ And that’s what the industry demanded. It’s not that we were in competition with each other. None of the singers who were doing that stuff wanted that… It has to evolve at some point, even if it’s just for yourself. I can’t wait to go onstage and sing these songs.”
On writers taking a chance on her, despite not releasing an album in six years:
“I’ve been gone for six years. There’s a time where you think, ‘Do you think people will write songs for me?'” she says. “I’m at the mercy of the songs because I don’t write my material. But I could not believe what I was hearing. I’m not trying to reinvent myself, I don’t want people to think. ‘This is a brand new Celine,’ but I am at a place in my career where I’m 45, I’m at the peak of my life, and I’ve never felt like this before. I want to have a good time.”
