Dion said in April that she won't be taking their children, Rene-Charles, 18, and 8-year-old twins Nelson and Eddy, on tour with her.

The legendary singer released three new tracks on Wednesday, "Imperfections", "Lying Down" and "Courage".

"Right now we are extremely, extremely, extremely busy because we are in preparation of the tour, of the album", she explains. Lying Down reminds us all to change our mindset to move forward after a poisonous relationship and was written by David Guetta, Giorgio Tuinfort, and Sia Furler.

"Before I talk, he goes through my mind", she said.

Courage, set for release on November 15, will be Dion's first English-language album in six years. "I've got my own imperfections", she sings in an upbeat number produced by DallasK, best known for co-writing and producing Fifth Harmony's massive "Work from Home".

Three years after René Angélil's death, his memory lives on in the life of his beloved wife. "I have to take charge of my life". I feel fierce! I feel strong!

"Courage", the title song, may strike fans as the most personal as most anthemic, with simple piano and orchestrating underlying Dion facing loss with chest-thumping bravado, singing, "Courage, don't you dare fail me now / I need you to keep away the doubts", facing "a train wreck, but I'm not crashed yet".
