Engelbert Humperdinck has long been one of music’s biggest entertainers, a mega-watt star so famous he barely needs to use a last name. He’s got four Grammy nominations, 64 gold records and a string of enduring hits to his credit like “After the Lovin‘,” “Spanish Eyes” and “Release Me,” the 1967 classic that spent more than a year atop the pop music charts. That won Humperdinck a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
But Humperdinck’s not a singer who rests on his past successes. He likes to keep things fresh, whether it’s cutting a country music album or the 2014 album of duets Humperdinck did with fellow music icons, including Elton John and Willie Nelson.
Humperdinck is currently assembling material for an album of all-new songs he hopes to release this summer. “I’m testing them out with my audiences now, and I’m getting great results,” he said during a recent phone interview from his home in California. Humperdinck is looking to fill the album with the kinds of songs to which he’s always been partial. He calls them “songs with value,” songs with lyrics to which the average listener can relate.
“My kind of material is story lines that people have lived before, so the can say ‘That’s my life,” Humperdinck said.
