Release date: November 2012
Sans Attendre is the fourteenth French-language studio album by Canadian singer Celine Dion, released on November 2, 2012 through Columbia Records. Sans Attendre features sixteen songs produced mainly by Jacques Veneruso, David Gategno and Scott Price. It contains three duets with Johnny Hallyday, Jean-Pierre Ferland and the late Henri Salvador.
During an interview with Herby Moreau, host of Quebec television show District V, Celine said that for her the title means "don't leave until tomorrow what you can do today" and that "today" is the most important day. According to Dion, "this album is about feelings and being close to the people who have known me a long time. I can speak to them freely without having to convince them of what I'm capable of. It's like a VIP invitation: I invite you into my home".
The album debuted at number one in Canada and France with an impressive first week sales of almost 100,000 units in each country. Sans Attendre also topped the chart in Belgium Wallonia and reached number two in Switzerland and number eight in Poland. It was certified Diamond in France, 3× Platinum in Canada, Platinum in Belgium, and Gold in Switzerland and Poland. As of November 2013, Sans Attendre has sold 1,500,000 copies around the world.
