It’s a great day to be a Celine Dion fan, with the release overnight of the Canadian superstar’s new single ‘Ashes’.
The track is lifted from the soundtrack to the new ‘Deadpool’ movie ‘Deadpool 2’ and is Celine’s first English single release in two long years.
She’s not released an album in almost five years.
All the elements of a great Celine song are here… big flowing dresses, her trademark dramatised hand movements and the big notes and vocal flourishes from that flawless yet familiar voices.
What we weren’t expecting, obviously, was a) a rather beautiful contemporary dance routine from the star of the movie itself (Deadpool dances across the stage with unexpected grace) and b) a very cute and funny little interaction between the pair at the end.
Nice to have Celine back.
