Musician Engelbert Humperdinck turns 87 today (May 2, 2023) and is proving that age is just a number as he’s just released a new album filled with incredible covers and a reinterpretation of one of his biggest hit songs. The album titled All About Love features 13 songs including Bee Gee’s hit “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart.”

Humperdinck is putting his own spin on several songs including the Barry White classic “You’re The First, The Last, My Everything.” He sings the hit with a country-western twang. The song was released in late 2022 and has over 2.7 million views on YouTube which inspired a line dance based on the music video. In the video, he moves and grooves and certainly doesn’t appear in his late 80s at all.

Humperdinck has been pumping out hits since the ’60s and his song “A Man Without Love” was recently featured in the Marvel series Moon Knight, showing that his music is as relevant as ever. In this new album, the song features singer Angelica Maria as a Spanish and English duet. This wasn’t the only song that has made its way into mainstream media. “Quando, Quando, Quando” was also featured in the Netflix series Umbrella Academy and his newly recorded version of “Forever Blowing Bubbles” was featured in the Brad Pitt film Bullet Train.

Other songs on the album include his take on the R&B hit “If You Don’t Know Me By Now,” “Besame Mucho,” “Walk Away,” and “Take Me Back Again.” Grammy-nominated Mariachi singer Lupita Infante, the granddaughter of film star Pedro Infante joins Humperdinck on “Besame Mucho,” one of the most important songs in the history of Latin music.
