Engelbert Humperdinck to perform UK’s 2012 Eurovision song: ‘Love Will Set You Free’

March 20, 2012

Visit our main website at: http://www.sh-boommagazine.com

Engelbert Humperdinck, 75, will perform a Spanish-flavoured ballad called ‘Love Will Set You Free’ as the UK’s entry in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Baku, Azerbaijan on 26 May.

The UK hasn’t won since Katrina and the Waves’ ‘Love Shine a Light’ in 1997, but Engelbert – best known for his 1967 hit ‘Release Me’ – is hoping to reverse the UK’s fortunes this year.

 ‘Love Will Set You Free’ was written by Grammy award-winning producer Martin Terefe and Ivor Novello award winner Sacha Skarbek, who co-wrote James Blunt’s ‘You’re Beautiful’ and Lana Del Rey’s ‘Born To Die’.

Tommy Roe – often described as “the father of Sixties bubblegum music” – is planning to release his first new studio album for more than two decades, followed by five months of concert dates.

No release date has yet been set for the new album, but the 69-year-old ‘Dizzy’, ‘Everybody’ and ‘Sheila’ star says the album is likely to be called Devil’s Soul Pile, after a hard-hitting ‘social comment’ song he wrote in 2005.
