Watch: Engelbert Humperdinck Performs Love Will Set Your Free - Britain's Eurovision Song Contest Entry


Engelbert Humperdinck is performing the United Kingdom's entry in the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest, Love Will Set You Free.

“I have just spent two weeks in London and there were full page articles in every national newspaper every day that I was in the country! It blew me away. I feel totally proud to represent my country in song and I am “in it to win it!,” said Engelbert as he arrived at LAX on Saturday afternoon. “I felt like an athlete about to compete in the Olympics. Everywhere I went people wanted to shake my hand and wish me luck.”

Noise11.com and VVN Music announced a month back that Engelbert Humperdinck would be Eurovision’s UK entrant and now you can hear the song the music legend will perform on the show.


Love Will Set You Free was written by Train producer Martin Terefe and Ivor Novello winner Sacha Skarbek, the team who wrote James Blunt’s You’re Beautiful and Lana Del Rey’s Born To Die.

Martin is also producing Engelbert’s next album, due around the time of Eurovision. Dan Wilson, who wrote Somebody Like You for Adele and six songs on Dixie Chicks Taking The Long Way album, is also working with Engelbert on the new album.

Engelbert will release the album through Conehead Records.
