He unveiled the album at a press conference in Mexico City on Wednesday (23Sep15), when he was serenaded by a mariachi band in honour of his 72nd birthday, but the occasion wasn't all joyful - Iglesias announced he has no plans to head back into the studio ever again, because recording album tracks is such a time-consuming process.

Enrique Iglesias' dad explained, "It is the last album I will record in a studio in my life. My retirement from the studio is merely because I don't have a year and a half to spend in a studio, as the albums I do are long."
