87 year-old Doris Day to release new album
Hollywood legend Doris Day is set to release her first new album in 17 years.

The 87 year-old actress and singer releases ‘My Heart’ on September 5, which is made up of a selection of re-mastered recordings, including new material and cover songs.

Born in Ohio in 1924, Day had her first hit record in 1945, with ‘Sentimental Journey’. Of the new album, Day told the Yorkshire Post:

It was brought to my attention that the recordings were in storage and Sony was interested in releasing them. So I listened to them and at first had some misgivings, but after they were remastered, I liked them and hoped my fans would too.

She added:

I had to sing some modern songs, because I had already done all the old ones.

The album includes ‘Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries’, which was produced by her son Terry Melcher, who died in 2004.

The singer, who has spent her time away from the spotlight looking after animals, said she doesn’t really listen to contemporary singers, though makes an exception for Michael Buble, adding: “I think Michael Buble is marvellous but perhaps that’s because he sings in the style I’m so familiar with.”

The 'My Heart' tracklisting is:

'Hurry, It's Lovely Up Here'
'The Way I Dreamed It'
'Heaven Tonight'
'My One & Only Love'
'My Heart'
'You Are So Beautiful'
'Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries'
'Disney Girls'
'My Buddy'
'Happy Endings'
