British singer-songwriter Peter Sarstedt, best known for his 1969 U.K. hit "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?", has died, BBC News reported Sunday (Jan. 8), citing a statement from his family. He was 75.

He reportedly died peacefully after a six-year battle with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, a rare neurological condition.

Sarstedt retired from the entertainment industry in 2010 because of his health issues, according to his website. During his 50-year career, the singer released dozens of albums but never surpassed the success of "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?”, which spent four weeks at No. 1 on the British charts.

Sarstedt’s last album, Restless Heart, was released in 2013.
