TORONTO — Canadian pop superstar Celine Dion has teamed with contemporary hitmakers on three newly released ballads as she launches a world tour Wednesday.

Dion, who plays three shows in Quebec City this week to begin the Courage World Tour, drops her first English-language album in six years in November titled “Courage.”

“You can’t take this from me. Can’t you see I won’t take this lying down,” she sings in the inspirational power-ballad “Lying Down,” co-written by “Chandelier” singer-songwriter Sia, who she teamed with on the 2013 track “Love Me Back to Life,” and French DJ David Guetta.

On the smooth “Imperfections,” co-written by pop singer-songwriter Lauv, she sings of a need to love herself before she can love somebody else: “I got my own imperfections. I can’t hold your heart when I’m fixing mine.”
