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’.
