Sir Elton John has joined Engelbert Humperdinck in the studio in Los Angeles to record a song together for Engelbert’s forthcoming duets album.
The album is due for release in 2013 through Engelbert’s new record label Conehead Records. It will be his first release for the label.
Engelbert said, “This album is a true labour of love. We have a few more recordings to go, but what a cast! I’m keeping most of it under my hat but was so excited about working with Elton who I have admired ever since first hearing him that I just couldn’t keep it to myself. I’m honoured that he has contributed to this album, people are going to love the track.”
Elton commented, “One of the sweetest and nicest people I have ever worked with. We had great time singing together and he is so quick, what I call a ‘one-take singer’. 76 years old and still sounding as good as ever”.
Grammy award winner Martin Terefe (Train, Jason Mraz) is producing this album.
Engelbert has received four Grammy nominations and has been awarded 63 Gold and 24 Platinum albums. He also has a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
