Engelbert Humperdinck – All About Love
Engelbert Humperdinck celebrates his 87th birthday with the release of his timeless new album ‘All About Love’
Instead of receiving gifts in celebration of his 87th birthday on May 2, 2023, iconic singer Engelbert Humperdinck will be giving one to his fans worldwide with the release of his brand new album All About Love via OK! Good Records.
A collection of eye-opening reinterpretations of classic love songs, re-workings of some of his own classics, and duets with two of the most-celebrated Mexican vocalists today (GRAMMY®-nominated Lupita Infante and “Mexico’s Sweetheart” Angélica María), his new 13 track collection is more proof that Engelbert just gets better with age.
The four-time GRAMMY®-nominated and multiplatinum selling legend tackles some of the greatest love songs of all time delivering personal renditions of The Bee Gees’ first US #1 “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart,” The Three Degrees’ “When Will I See You Again” along with stunning new renditions of chart topping songs from the likes of Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, The Manhattans, The Flamingos, Carole King and more.
The album kicks-off with Engelbert’s country-western tinged rendition of Barry White’s 1974 Gold-selling chart topper “You’re The First, The Last, My Everything”. Released last Fall the music video has amassed over 2.7 million views on YouTube with its line-dance inspired video, filmed at Los Angeles’ authentic Honky-Tonk club, Cowboy Palace Saloon.
All About Love was recorded at famous Black Bird Studios with some of Nashville’s best musicians, including Dave Cohen (Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire, Florida Georgia Line) on keyboards, Rob McNelley (Buddy Guy, Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban) on guitars, Lex Price (Shemekia Copeland, Neko Case, Indigo Girls) on bass, Jerry Roe (LeeAnn Woman, Luke Combs, Keith Urban) on drums, Fred Eltringham (Sheryl Crow, Lucinda Williams, Willie Nelson) on drums, and even legend Charlie McCoy (Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan).
As a nod to his ever-growing Latin popularity, Engelbert has recorded a pair of duets in Spanish with two of Mexico’s best female singers. Considered one of the most important songs in the history of Latin music, the bolero classic “Bésame Mucho” features two-time GRAMMY®-nominated Mariachi star Lupita Infante, who incidentally is the granddaughter of iconic film star Pedro Infante who originally introduced the song in Mexico.
Reworking a mixed Spanish/English version of “A Man Without Love / Cuando Me Enamoro,” Engelbert goes head-to-head with “Mexico’s Sweetheart”Angélica María who also had a Spanish hit with the song (and coincidentally has a recurring role in the Netflix series The Lincoln Lawyer). Watch the Duet Video below:
Thanks to massive awareness from creative placement of his classic hits in current and vastly popular mainstream TV shows and films, Engelbert’s popularity has exploded exponentially in recent years. The aforementioned “A Man Without Love” was featured on the Marvel Universe series Moon Knight and “Quando, Quando, Quando” found itself on Netflix’s Umbrella Academy. His newly recorded version of West Ham United’s football anthem “Forever Blowing Bubbles” was featured prominently in Brad Pitt’s No.1 runaway hit movie Bullet Train.
Not one to rest on his laurels, Engelbert is planning a worldwide tour featuring stops in the USA, Europe, South America and SE Asia. Not bad for someone about to turn 87!
