Celine Dion releases tribute in memory of Rene Angelil

Celine Dion has released a tribute to her late husband Rene Angelil.

The 48-year-old singer debuted the emotion-filled track, called 'Recovering', on Thursday (08.09.16) and in it, she opens up about her personal heartbreak.

She sings: "I am recovering / The hope that I lost / The part of my soul / That paid the cost.

"Little by little / Day by day / One step at a time / Shake off the devil / Take back my peace of mind."

During the course of the song, Celine confesses to being an anxiety addict and someone who harbours constant regrets.

She sings at the end: "Tell him I love him. Take back my peace of mind."

'Recovering' was written by pop star Pink and Celine personally thanked the 37-year-old beauty at May's Billboard Music Awards.

She recalled: "When I saw her, I said, 'For you to take the time to really write a song, to give me a tool, a piece of luggage to help me, to move forward to walk, to keep going...'"

Celine - who accepted the Icon award at the event - paid a glowing tribute to the chart-topping singer.

Celine explained: "She is phenomenal. I love her for her talent, for her strength, for her focus, [for] the person she is."

René passed away in January following a battle with throat cancer and Celine previously paid tribute to her husband during the finale of her Greatest Hits show, performing her hit track 'My Heart Will Go On'

She said: "My Heart Will Go On' has been an important song in my life for nearly two decades.

"Now and tonight, I'm very honoured to sing it for all of you and for the love of my life. René, you will always be in my heart."
