Engelbert Humperdinck Recording Country Album

Lauren Wilde is back producing for Engelbert Humperdinck on what is expected to be a country album from the music legend.

Wilde has previous produced Rod Stewart (American Songbook series), Carly Simon (Moonlight Serenade) and Art Garfunkel (Some Enchanted Evening). He previously worked with Engelbert on ‘Engelbert Calling’ (2014) as vocal producer as well as his 2007 release ‘The Winding Road’.

Engelbert’s country roots can be traced back to his very first hit ‘Release Me’ in 1967. The song was 21 years old by the time Engelbert got hold of it and made it his own.

Eddie Miller wrote ‘Release Me’ in 1946. Miller could not find anyone to record the song so he recorded it himself in 1947.

In 1954 the song was recorded by Ray Price. While not his first record, it became his breakthrough record reached no 6 in the USA.

Engelbert Humperdinck recorded ‘Release Me’ in 1967. It reached no 1 on the UK charts and stopped The Beatles ‘Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever’ from topping the British charts for the first time since 1963.

Engelbert Humperdinck will tour Australia in October and November for Bluehawk Presents.
