Celine Dion fans and lovers of the film "Deadpool 2" can check out a newly posted official audio clip of the five-time Grammy winner's latest single “Ashes,” which has been remixed for the movie soundtrack by EDM DJ Steve Aoki. “Ashes” is the lead single for the soundtrack, which dropped in conjunction with the movie's theatrical release on May 18 via Columbia.
The Canadian international superstar posted the “Ashes” remix on May 25 via Twitter and other social media on the heels of launching her spring residency on May 22 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The original version of "Ashes" was issued as a single on May 3 prior to the release of "Deadpool 2" along with an official video that went viral upon release.
In the 3:31 minute audio clip, Aoki uses a respectfully light touch on the remix. Dion's vocals remain the highlight, but are bolstered by a layer of synth rhythms, which make the song more danceable. Fans can check out the remix above and the original version here.
Aoki previously produced a remix of the multi-platinum seller's classic “Titanic” theme - “My Heart Will Go.” The pair teamed up to perform the song together live, during a charity for the Las Vegas Victims Fund on Nov. 8, 2017 in Las Vegas at Caesars Palace.
Fans in Sin City can catch the Canadian international superstar at her next performance, which takes place May 25 in Las Vegas at the Colosseum at Caesars. The spring run is scheduled to continue through June 9. Grab your tickets now at AXS.
