2017 release. Continuing with the celebration of his 50th Showbiz Anniversary, Engelbert Humperdinck releases his first album of brand-new material in years with The Man I Want to Be. There are new songs by Richard Marx, Jon Allen (including the title track), Richard Scott, Steve Mac, Les Reed and Engelbert's dau­ghter Louise Dorsey, some unexpected covers of Bruno Mars' ‘Just the Way You Are’ and Ed Sheerans' ‘Photograph’ – plus three classic songs recently introduced in his Live Show: Willie Nelsons' ‘Crazy’, Eddy Arnold's ‘Welcome to my World’ and the NY classic ‘On Broadway’, all of which have been turned inside out. This album finds Engelbert in a reflective and introspective mood with lyrics that are very personal and important to him. Most of the new songs were written drawing on some of his life experiences in a meaningful way that is relevant to various chapters of his life, including the health situation of his wife Patricia who is suffering from advanced Alzheimer's as the singer recently revealed. The song ‘I m Glad I Danced With You’ written by his daughter, Louise and performed as a duet with his granddaughter, Olivia is a loving tribute to his wife.
