Sinatra Sings The Stars' Songs

NANCY SINATRA is turning her new album, TO NANCY WITH LOVE, into a star-studded affair after recording songs penned by MORRISSEY, BONO and PULP's JARVIS COCKER.

The THESE BOOTS WERE MADE FOR WALKIN' icon recorded TWO SHOTS OF HAPPY, a song Bono wrote for her father FRANK SINATRA, and decided to make an album of other people's music.

So she recorded pal Morrissey's LET ME KISS YOU, her first single, and Cocker's tribute, TO NANCY.

Other contributors include PETE YORN, JON SPENCER and ELVIS COSTELLO, who performs a duet with Sinatra on the album.

Sinatra admits the toughest song to record was the one Bono wrote for her father: "It's a little difficult emotionally because this is about dad, but it's a bang-on description of him."
