First new music since neurological disorder diagnosis
The tracks are the first taste of new Dion music since a rare neurological disorder forced her to sideline her world tour.
In December, Dion announced that she has "stiff person syndrome," a condition characterized by sudden severe muscle spasms that she said made it difficult to walk and prevented her from using her vocal cords to sing the way she's used to. She cancelled and postponed an array of dates to focus on her health.
Love Again tells the story of a woman who finds solace from the sudden death of her fiancé by texting his old cellphone number, only to find a new connection with a different man who had the number reassigned to him.
