ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK
Sends A Special Valentine’s Day Message
With a Heartfelt Performance of
Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are”
Engelbert Humperdinck “Just The Way You Are”
Few artists are as perfectly suited for Valentine’s Day as the iconic ENGELBERT HUMPERDINCK. And with the dawning of today’s special day for lovers everywhere, the unparalleled “King of Romance” has recorded a special Valentine’s video for his fans across the globe. Filmed during rehearsal at The Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas earlier this month, the legendary vocalist performs a beautiful cover of Bruno Mars‘ “Just The Way You Are”.

Taken from his latest album THE MAN I WANT TO BE which was released November 2017 via OK! Good Records, “Just The Way You Are” demonstrates effortlessly Engelbert that he is very much a relevant artist for today’s audiences as he has been over the last five decades of his career. Selling over 150 million albums worldwide, Engelbert’s legacy includes multiplatinum-selling hits such as “Release Me”, “The Last Waltz” and “After the Lovin'” among many others.

Doubling as a love letter to his wife Patricia of 53 years who is suffering from Alzheimer’s Disease, The Man I Want To Be presents the singer in a much more contemporary style and introspective mood, covering topics such as self realization (“The Man I Want To Be”, “I Followed My Heart”, “Absolute Beginner”), remorse (“How Can You Live”,  “Prodigal Son”), and melancholic nostalgia (“Photograph”, “I’m Glad I Danced With You”). A collection of love songs crafted by stellar array of songwriters like Willie Nelson (“Crazy”), Jon Allen (“The Man I Want To Be”), Richard Scott (“Just Like The First Time”), Steve Mac (“Absolute Beginner”), Richard Marx and Fee Waybill (“How Can You Live”), it also includes two unexpected covers – Ed Sheeran’s “Photograph” and the aforementioned Bruno Mars’ “Just The Way You Are”, definite highlights of the album. Much more than simple cover versions Engelbert gives the songs a much deeper reading, lyrically and musically. Another unexpected surprise is a duet with his nine year old granddaughter Olivia, “I’m Glad I Danced With You,” a bittersweet ode dedicated to his wife Patricia.

The Man I Want To Be was produced by Jurgen Korduletsch and was released on November 24, 2017 via OK! Good Records.
