At 82 and more than 50 years into his entertainment career, Engelbert Humperdinck is on a roll.
Earlier this year the British singer released a new studio album, The Man I Want To Be, his first set of original material in more than a decade. And on Oct. 12 he'll celebrate the season with Warmest Christmas Wishes, a 14-track set whose rendition of the Charles Brown staple "Please Come Home For Christmas" premieres exclusively below.
"It's been such a long time since I recorded a Christmas album, and fans have been asking me, 'When are you going to do another one?'" Humperdinck -- who released his first holiday set, Christmas Tyme, in 1977 and has put out several more since -- tells Billboard. "Finally, we decided to do it. I love (Christmas). From me growing up with a large family and everybody singing around the Christmas tree, it was a wonderful, wonderful upbringing. So (Christmas) is very special with me to share."
