Music fans old and new have re-discovered one of England’s greatest singers of all time and are loving what they found. Thanks to massive awareness created by the use of some of his classic hits on uber-popular TV shows like Moon Knight – “A Man Without Love” and Umbrella Academy – “Quando, Quando, Quando.” The indomitable 86 year young Leicester boy (as the Queen calls him) finds himself at the centre of attention once again. Having a newly recorded version of West Ham United’s football anthem “Forever Blowing Bubbles” in Brad Pitt’s current No.1 runaway hit movie Bullet Train’ hasn’t hurt either.
Not one to rest on his laurels Engelbert Humperdinck is determined to show fans some new tricks with a new album he is recording for release later this year. To give fans a taste he is showing off a new side of himself with the release of a brand-new single – “You’re The First, The Last, My Everything” is his first official single in years. If the title sounds familiar, it should be. The song was a UK No.1 record for soul legend Barry White in 1974. This may sound like an unusual choice for a singer better known for his ballads and waltzes, but you’ll be even more shocked by the novel treatment Engelbert has given this classic.
Engelbert has turned the song into a Country Line Dance Hit that is instantly infectious and makes you smile and immediately want to head to the dance floor. Given that some of Engelbert’s greatest hits have all had roots in Country music: “Release Me,” “There Goes My Everything,” “Am I That Easy To Forget,” his love for it shouldn’t be a surprise. With his new single though he takes things to another level and delivers a worthy successor to Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Achy Breaky Heart.” To top it off, he has filmed a fun music video, one of only a handful in his career, that shows him performing the song at the Cowboy Palace Saloon – an authentic Honky Tonk Club in California.
The man doesn’t let the grass grow under his feet. Currently, he is on a South East Asian tour, a warm-up for his extended touring activities in the USA throughout the fall. He is making up for time lost to the pandemic and is determined to give fans every chance to see him Live in person in his element. Nothing could express his love for his fans and their love for him better than the title of the song “You’re The First, The Last, My Everything”!!!
