Now, let’s go back 17 years …
On March 26, 2002, Céline released her seventh English-language album “A New Day Has Come”. It went to No. 1 on Billboard 200 two weeks later. Included on the record was this song “The Greatest Reward” co-written by Jörgen.

Six years have passed since Céline Dion released her previous English-language studio album. Today “Courage”,  including three songs co-written by Jörgen, hit all platforms.

 

On April 3, Céline announced her first English-language studio album, “Courage”, since 2013 was set for release in November and that an upcoming worldwide tour would start in September.

That same day, this video came out on YouTube in which the car radio is switched on playing a 45 seconds snippet of the album’s first single “Flying On My Own”.

On June 8, the final night of Céline’s record-breaking 1,141 shows at Caesar’s Palace, she surprised the audience by performing the song.

Written by Jörgen, Liz Rodrigues and Anton “Hybrid” Mårtensson, the studio version of the song was released on June 28.

Included on today’s “Courage” album release are two more songs co-written by Jörgen:
