A new single by Cilla Black is set to be released five years after her death.

The previously unreleased You’re Sensational track will be made available on Valentine’s Day, according to a statement posted on the late singer’s official Facebook page.

The love song was recorded in the 1970s as a follow-up to her hit song Something Tells Me – but the tapes disappeared for decades until they were uncovered in an archive storage unit, according to the statement.

Black’s eldest son and former manager Robert Willis said: “I thought we had released everything there was to release.

“So it was a real joy to find a complete unreleased track by my mother from the early 1970s.

“I think the fans will really enjoy hearing it for the first time as much as I did.”

The single has been remixed by Dutch music producer Matt Pop.

He said: “Now that Cilla is sadly not with us anymore, to have this surface like a time machine from the disco era was quite magical.

“There’s no two ways about it: it’s disco!”

Black died at her Spanish home in 2015.

As well as having a successful career as a singer, the Liverpudlian also hosted hit TV shows including Blind Date and Cilla.

The single will be made available for digital download by Warner Music on February 14.
