Dion will release the new album Girl Friends on March 8, which has him collaborating with a lineup of female performers, including Carleen Carter, Maggie Rose, Rory Block, Shemekia Copeland and Debbie Davis.
He also teams up with guitarist Susan Tedeschi on the just-released second single from the album, “Soul Force.” It follows the previously released tune "An American Hero," featuring Carter.
“I wanted the best music possible. So, I wrote up a batch of duets for me and my ‘girl friends,’ the women who inhabit my headphones — the women who make me turn up the volume when they drop into my radio,” Dion shares in a commentary about the record, titled “The Feminine Genius.” “You’ll hear the feminine genius in every groove of this record, and you won’t forget any of it.”
