Engelbert Humperdinck Releases Mother's Day Song, "You"
Much has been written and said about Engelbert Humperdinck, the King of Romance. His fans love the romantic and heartfelt love songs that he has been releasing for them with great regularity over the years. And as a surprise to mothers everywhere, Engelbert is releasing his special tribute to moms around the world with the new song "You" which is released to DSPs everywhere today in advance of Mother's Day which is this Sunday, May 12th.
Everyone admires the spry octogenarian for his stamina and showmanship live for over 50 years and is captivated by the undeniable charisma, charm, and warmth he displays in abundance onstage. He has earned his iconic status as one of the great traditional pop singers of the last fifty years.
With his most recent albums The Man I Want to Be (2017) and Warmest Christmas Wishes (2018), he has shown another side of his talent by picking more introspective songs that connect with his life’s experience and put in meaningful words things he feels about himself and those he loves most - his wife, his family and his fans. A perfect example is the latest song "You," written for him by renowned British songwriters Jon Allen and Jake Fields. As interpreted by Engelbert, the hauntingly beautiful “You” transforms into a loving 'thank you' note to his wife and a deeply felt tribute to his ever loyal fans.
Having performed the song around the world in recent months,“You” has become one of the fans' favorites and is now a powerful signature song for Engelbert, much in the way "My Way" did for Frank Sinatra or "Yesterday When I Was Young" for Charles Aznavour.
Rather than a fitting bookend for his career, Engelbert sees his recent songs as a tool of creative rejuvenation, allowing him to re-invent himself as an artist for the many years to come he plans to entertain the world with his music. Long Live the King of Romance!
