about

The legendary and incomparable Engelbert Humperdinck celebrates his incredible 50 year career with the release of his new single “I Followed My Heart”. The OK!Good Records release, an original song written by British singer/songwriter Jon Allen for Engelbert, includes an exclusive new version of the single, “I Followed My Heart (Jon Allen & Tristan Longworth Version),” arranged and mixed by fellow OK!Good Records artist Jon Allen and mixed by Tristan Longworth.

Engelbert’s heartfelt new single “I Followed My Heart,” captures the elegance and charm that fans fell in love with over fifty years ago. The single beautifully showcases Engelbert’s distinctive silky vocals. He has personally dedicated this beautiful new song to his wife Patricia, stating “I'm dedicating this song to my beloved wife Patricia, whose strength and courage is truly extraordinary.”

The single’s original version is also featured on Decca’s current release titled “Engelbert Humperdinck: 50,” a two disc collection of Engelbert’s Greatest Hits, which reached the Top Five on The Official UK Albums Chart two weeks ago.

With a career spanning over five decades, Engelbert Humperdinck has sold in excess of 140 million records worldwide, more than Adele, Justin Bieber, and Lady Gaga. He has 64 Gold albums, 23 Platinum albums, multiple Grammy nominations, a Golden Globe for Entertainer of the Year, his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and represented the UK in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest. The 81 year old iconic singer is currently in the midst of his 50th Showbiz Anniversary World Tour, that celebrates a truly remarkable career which started with the release of his worldwide No.1 Hit “Release Me”.

Engelbert's hit song “Release Me” held the No.1 spot in the UK chart for six weeks in 1967, preventing The Beatles single “Penny Lane” from reaching the top and breaking their four-year run of chart toppers. “Release Me” was the highest-selling single in 1967, spending a record-breaking 56 weeks in the charts and hitting the No.1 spot in 11 countries.

Track Name: I Followed My Heart
When my song is done
Will I miss the lonely spotlight when it’s gone?
Will I mourn the golden haze of the love you gave
And all that I had been to you?

And when the curtain falls
And the final chords still ringing in the hall
I can look back on my time without regret
to know that this one thing is true

I followed my heart
I followed my heart
Every single part
I felt it all right from the start
And I followed my heart

I’m still a restless soul
With a yearning in my heart that won’t grow old
With a fire that would not fade with the dying sun
A melody that leads me on

There are roads I didn’t take
Love I lost and promises I had to break
Will you forgive all that I did and didn’t do?
And please believe if I was wrong…

I followed my heart
I followed my heart
Every single part
I felt it all right from the start
And I followed my heart

Sometimes long forgotten moments
Appear like dancing silhouettes
Not even love can last forever
What love remembers, time forgets

My life has been a show
It’s taken and it’s given everything I know
But when I look back on the sad and the happy tears
I wouldn’t want to change a thing

Because I followed my heart
I followed my heart
Every single part
I felt it all right from the start
And I followed my heart

I followed my heart

I followed my heart
