Somewhere, my love is a 10" studio album recorded by American popular music singer Connie Francis.

Produced as a special release for the German Bertelsmann Record Club, Somewhere, my love is a compilation of English language and German language tracks recorded by Francis in May and June 1966:

The English recordings Somewhere, my love (Lara's Theme), Dance my trouble away, and The shadow of your smile were taken from Francis' 1966 US album Movie Greats Of The 60s while Spanish Nights and you" was included because it had been one of Francis' most successful international single releases of 1966.

The German recordings Malagueña, Deine Liebe (True love), Heißer Sand, and Sag, weißt du denn, was Liebe ist (Love is a many splendored thing) had been included previously on the German album Melodien, die die Welt erobern, Francis' first German language concept album which had been released as tie in with her first German TV special of the same name.

The song Es ist so schön, dass es dich gibt was included because it was Francis' current single in Germany in June 1967 when the album was released.
