"I'm already starting to work on an English album," Dion told ET's Carly Steel. The 48-year-old singer is keeping most of the details of the project under wraps, but shared one special tease: "Pink wrote me a song."

"She is phenomenal. I love her for her talent, for her strength, for her focus, the person she is," Dion said of the 36-year-old singer. "At the [Billboard Music Awards] when I saw her, I said, 'For you to take the time to really write a song, to give me a tool, a piece of luggage to help me to move forward to walk to keep going…"

"It's called 'Recovering,'" the five-time GRAMMY winner revealed of the new song, adding that fans should "get ready."

Dion also opened up to ET about how support from her fans has helped her through the six months following her husband's death. Angelil died on Jan. 14 after battling throat cancer for several years. He was 73 years old.

"I think I do have a relationship with my fans that are [pushing] me [along]," Dion told ET. "They've been such supporters of my good days and my bad days."

"They are so considerate for my happiness and my sadness, my good and bad moments, and they are [always] supporting me," she added. "The fans are supporting not only my music, but who I am. I've been criticized for being an open book for so long, but it's paying off today because they know me well."
