Engelbert Humperdinck Featured on Media Mikes

eh- media mikes cover 600

Engelbert Humperdinck was featured on MediaMikes.com for his interview with Mike Gencarelli. During the interview, the two talk about Engelbert Calling, Engelbert Humperdinck’s first ever duets album, and his North American tour.  The interview gives great insight to the many details of making this album

Engelbert Humperdinck says it took just over three years to complete this particular album. “Thank God for internet for being able to send these tracks across the world to each of the artists involved with this album. It was a lot of work and I am glad that it is finally available to my fans to enjoy,” says Humperdinck.

MG: Tell us about the title “Engelbert Calling” I picture you going through your contact list and calling out all your friends.
EH: Yeah, the biggest challenge was putting it all together and making my wish list of people I wanted to work with. Johnny Mathis is one of my favorite singers of all time. I love his work. Kenny Rogers was great getting to work with. When I called Willie Nelson, he recorded his part in Nashville, I told him that I was so thrilled to have him on the album, especially singing a Bob Dylan song. Along with signing, I also asked him to play guitar since he has such a great unique style. He was so accommodating and after he recorded it called and made sure it was ok. So that was really great.

Engelbert Calling has 23 tracks, all of which are duets, on 2 CDs. To record 23 duets in the studio with all 23 musical legends would be a nearly impossible task. Engelbert Humperdinck recorded only two tracks in the studio. Engelbert Humperdinck recorded with Elton John, “Something About the Way You Look Tonight,”  and Gene Simmons, “Spinning Wheel,” in the studio together. All the other tracks were done via airways. “Technology has made it possible to do things that are impossible in real life. This album was done in England, London, Los Angeles, New York, Nashville, South America and Europe,” says Humperdinck.

MG: How was it singing with your kids, Louise and Bradley on this album?
EH: Yep, that is my son and daughter at the end of each disc as a bonus track. I was thrilled to have them there. I wanted to show the world, since this is a world release record, that my children can sing and also pay tribute on my album.

MG:“I Need You Know” with Lulu is one of the newest songs that you covered; what made you choose this song?
EH: I had to have Lulu on this album. Many years ago, when my single for “Release Me” came out, she was on a show in England called “Jukebox Jury”. There were four people on the panel and Lulu was the only one who voted my song a hit. She did a super job on this song. It is a great duet song, so it was easy picking. Plus it suited her voice very well.

Engelbert Humperdinck will be kicking off his North American tour October 10th at the American Music Theatre in Lancaster, PA. Engelbert Humperdinck plans on covering many of the songs off of Engelbert Calling. Engelbert Humperdinck even has a special surprise for all those who attend a concert.

“I do a virtual duet with Elton John. It is going over absolutely fantastic and people are loving the idea of it.”

Engelbert Humperdinck Featured in Providence Journal

EH- Providence Journal 600Engelbert Humperdinck was featured in an article for the Providence Journal. The article excites fans for Engelbert Humperdinck’s return to Rhode Island as a part of his North American Tour. Engelbert Humperdinck will be performing Sunday, October 12th at the Park Theatre in Cranston.

This performance in Cranston comes shortly after the release of Engelbert Calling, which is Engelbert Humperdinck’s first ever duets album. This album features duets with musical legends such as Elton John, Gene Simmons, Wyonna Judd, Willie Nelson and many others. “This has been a labor of love. It was two years in the making because it was difficult to get the caliber of people we wanted to be on this record. Thank God for technology,” Humperdinck says, noting that he was able to record together with only some of the musicians. Others separately recorded their tracks, which were then mixed in the studio.

The article recognizes just how long Engelbert Humperdinck has been in the music business. He has spent a lifetime reinventing himself, which he credits for his perennial popularity. Born Arnold George Dorsey, the singer had a manager who suggested a new name that was “just outrageous enough to be memorable.” Forty-seven years later, he is still “constantly updating” his image, his music and himself.

“It’s like cell phones — they’re always coming out with a new one! I don’t rest on my laurels. I want it to be fresh,” Humperdinck says. “I’m getting a younger demographic now, but I’ve always had appeal across the board. … That’s what keeps me relevant, a place where every artist should be.”
