Celine Dion Gets a Style Makeover

Celine Dion has some big news to share!

The 48-year-old singer announced her first album following the death of her beloved husband and former manager, Rene Angelil in January, will be released this August and will be titled "Encore un soir," French for "another night." The French-Canadian singer hasn't put out new work since 2013's "Loved Me Back to Life."

Dion took to Twitter to share the big news:

After a brief hiatus to mourn the loss of her husband earlier this year, Celine returned to the stage stronger than ever in February at her Las Vegas residency and paid tribute to his legacy during her first night back. She told the audience, "We were one. And nothing has changed. We will always be one."

This will be Celine's 26th studio album and 14th French language album. She hasn't revealed a release date for her next English-language song yet, but she did recently reveal that Pink wrote a song for her to include in that album. The "Just Like Fire" singer reached out to Celine shortly after her husband and brother, Daniel, died within a week of each other.

"She's a genuine person, and [it was] so generous of her to take the time to write a song for me during the most difficult time of mine," Dion shared. "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."
