Second single from hit album features Shelby Lynne

Conehead are proud to announce the second single from the ‘Engelbert Calling’ album from Engelbert Humperdinck. The track ‘Real Love, a duet with mega-selling Grammy© winner Shelby Lynne, is set for release on 11 August 2014 and Engelbert is delighted: “The track ‘Real Love’ sounds just amazing, it was a true pleasure to have the chance to work with Shelby, and such amazing songwriters too”. Shelby Lynne said, “What an honour- I am thrilled to be a part of his album - EH still sounds sexy as ever”.

A brand new track written by Dan Wilson [responsible for the monster Adele hit ‘Someone Like You’], artist James Morrison and producer / artist Martin Terefe [Jason Mraz, Cat Stevens (Yusuf), Jamie Cullum], ‘Real Love’ is a quality song created by some music industry heavyweights. These guys know what a smash record sounds like!

Dan Wilson said, “Working with Engelbert Humperdinck on this album and in particular on this song was truly inspiring. The man is an entertainment legend but also a gentleman and an artist and I learned a lot from him during the sessions”. James Morrison added, “I'm delighted that the legend who is Engelbert has recorded this song I wrote. The album is full of such quality with the likes of Elton, Willie Nelson, Smokey and Dionne Warwick all involved, so it's an honour for me to be a small part of it. The track turned out great and Shelby Lynne is the icing on the cake”. Martin Terefe said, “Working on Engelbert's duets album was a treat all around but my favourite collaboration on the album is 'Real Love'. I've been a longtime fan of Shelby Lynne and the breezy soulful vibe of the song is perfect match with Shelby and Engelbert's voices.'

It is through working with such luminaries that Enge has found himself back on top. He recently did ‘Later With Jools’ show, and his previous single made the A-List on BBC Radio 2. The album itself was granted BBC Radio 2 ‘Album Of The Week’ status and national airplay continues apace. ‘Real Love’ seems certain to continue that trajectory.

Featuring brand new recordings of classic tracks with some of the biggest and best voices on the planet, picked by the man himself, this is an album celebrating both an incredible career and all that is best in music. Between them the performers on ‘Engelbert Calling’ have sold over 1,500,000,000 albums [yes, that’s one and a half billion]!

‘Engelbert Calling’ is more than a great collection of great songs. It is a vital set brought to life by one of the true greats of music; this is an album that is truly contemporary and classic. Engelbert is a star like no other; stand by the phone, it’s time to get connected.
